All private and government run schools in Delhi will have to provide a detailed report of their teaching and non-teaching staff within a week. Moreover, within three weeks school managements will have to ensure that none of the staff members (teaching and non-teaching) have any kind of criminal records. Moreover, the Delhi government has asked school authorities to immediately remove the employees who are facing any criminal allegations.

This decision was taken today at a high level meeting attended by the Delhi Education Minister, Manish Sisodia, officials from the Delhi Directorate of Education and various principals from  government and private schools.

Sisodia said, “During the discussion, several inputs have been received from all sections of the academia which need urgent attention. The way private schools are now operating, without complying with the directions issued by the education department, shall no longer be tolerated. Now defaulters will have to face action.”

Both private and government schools have been directed to install CCTV cameras in class rooms and playgrounds. The school managements will have to submit a report to the education department regarding the functioning of these CCTV cameras, every month.

“School managements will also have to provide information regarding any misconduct of school staff. From now managements will have to upload all information pertaining to staff recruitment along with the police verification details and identification documents.” Sisodia added.

The government has decided to setup a high level committee under the Directorate of Education of Delhi Government. The committee shall comprise of education directors, transport department officials, traffic police and retired and working government school principals.

“This committee will be given the task of preparing a complete education road map from security of children to pedagogy reforms. It shall also have the power to inspect schools and create proper procedures. All the recommendations given by the committee will be strictly implemented,” Sisodia informed.

On Sunday, Delhi Police Commissioner, Amulya Patnaik had directed all the SHOs to conduct inspection visits in government and private schools of the city. Chief of Delhi Police has asked the DCPs to set up an independent team of police personnel for school inspection within a week.
