In a first, HRD ministry to rank Kendriya Vidyalayas

New Delhi, PTI: The Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) will rank the over 1,000 Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) with an aim at improving the institutes through holding a competition among them.

The outcome of the initiative, the process of which started recently, will be declared in June 2018, sources said.

The move follows the direction of HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar.

According to sources, inspection of schools would be done twice for the ranking which would be an annual exercise from next year.

With maximum 1,000 points, the KVs would be graded under four categories, with 80% and above (excellent) under A category, 60-79.9% (very good) in B category, 40-59.9% (Good) in C, and below 40%
(average) in D.

Over 1,000 KVs would be assessed under seven parameters, including academic performance which will carry the highest weightage of 500 points, followed by school infrastructure (150 points) and school administration (120 points).

Other heads under which schools would be marked include finance (70 points), community participation (60 points), grace points (90 points) and overall observation by the inspectors (10 points).

This would be the first official ranking of KVs.

The higher education institutes in the country are assessed and accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, an autonomous body funded by the University Grants Commission.

The KVs are central government schools instituted under the aegis of the HRD Ministry.

One of the main objectives includes catering to the educational needs of children of transferable central government staff, including defence and paramilitary personnel, by providing a common programme of education.
