NEW DELHI: The Delhi government’s directorate of education has issued another order asking private schools to submit online information on reserved category admissions by November 30.
The order came after the DOE discovered that 154 private schools had submitted data only for senior classes and not for “entry level” which is from nursery to Class I.
In the winter of 2013, the government had fixed the freeship quota for private-unaided schools built on land leased from the government at 20% of all new admissions from Class II onwards. The latest order says: “Only 154 schools have uploaded the details of EWS admissions in upper classes which too were found wrong and erroneous…It is difficult to ascertain the number of students admitted under freeship quota in upper classes.”
The circular points out there were three online “modules” through which the private schools could furnish information. The first required general details about the school, facilities and management; the second related to EWS/freeship category for the academic session of 2014-15; and the third was created for senior classes. But gaps and contradictions in the information led the directorate to doubt the “authenticity of the information gathered”. Now, the schools need to use only one module which has been titled as “Archived information regarding private unaided recognised schools of Delhi”, which will be available to the public.
