Delhi govt to schools: Display report card 'prominently'



The Delhi government has directed all the schools in the national capital to display their report card of size 3.5 X 2.5 feet at a "prominent" place in the building.

According to PTI, the Directorate of Education (DoE) said in a communication to schools, "It is mandatory for all schools to display school report card (3.5 X 2.5 feet in size) each year at a prominent place in the school building and principals or heads of schools should also share the same with community members."

"The report card of each school is available in public domain on an HRD portal and schools can download it using the Unified District Information System for Education (UDISE) code allotted to it," the circular said.

The move, according to DoE, would help those people who were interested in knowing about the standards and quality of a particular institution. All District Project Officers (DPOs) have also been directed to ensure compliance of the directive.

Recently, the Delhi government had faced a setback when the High Court had put a stay on its circular scrapping many criteria for nursery admissions, including management quota. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on January 5, announced that there would not be any quota applicable in nursery admissions except the Economically Weaker Section quota (EWS). Kejriwal ordered all private schools to follow the new rule, as action would be taken against schools that don't comply with the order.
