Parents still confused over nursery admissions

'DoE should come out with common procedure, dates'

Parents are confused as two private school organisations have come up with nursery admission procedure for 2015-16 session. 

They say the Directorate of Education (DoE) should come up with a calendar schedule which all schools can follow.

Parents are worried about disparity in admission dates. “If my child makes it to the first list of selected candidates of a school then I have to pay the admission fee to block the seat. What if other schools are yet to come out with their first list? I will be forced to pay the admission fee even if I don’t want to,” said Tejas Kapoor, seeking admission of his four-year-old son.

Another parent, Sakshi Nirula said there should be common dates for the nursery admissions. “The Directorate of Education should come out with a calendar schedule like last year so that there is no confusion,” added Nirula, who wants to admit her twin children in one school.

Sources say that the DoE will come out with the admission schedule on Monday. “The DoE is likely to come out with a calendar schedule for nursery admission for 2015-16 session on Monday,” said the source.

The umbrella organisation for private schools, Action Committee Unaided Recognised Private Schools, came out with the criteria for nursery admissions for 2015-16 session on Thursday.

According to their admission guidelines, the enrolment process will begin from December 20. “The distribution of forms will start from December 20, and the admission process will end by March 31,” said their schedule.

Earlier this month the High Court had allowed the private schools to have their own guidelines for nursery admissions for 2015-16.

According to the guidelines issued by the Action Committee Unaided Recognised Private Schools, the general category will have only 25 per cent seats. 

The committee suggested reserving 25 per cent seats for general and EWS categories each, up to 20 per cent seats for sibling quota, five per cent seats for alumni and staff quota each. Also, schools can reserve up to 20 per cent seats for management quota.
