Under the New Education Policy-2020, 32 schools in the district are recommended to be promoted as best schools. There are also six in cities and 26 in rural areas.
To participate in the PM SHRI programme, the state government and the centre have signed an MoU. More than 15,000 schools around the nation will be transformed into the premier institutions providing top-notch education in its initial phase. 846 schools from the state have been added.
Experiential learning will be used in PM SHRI schools to deliver fun education. Conceptual understanding, talents, and knowledge application in real-world contexts will all be taken into account when evaluating students. Past pupils from these institutions will help the youngsters by providing guidance on careers and financial aid for studies. These kids will be incorporated into society at large if the student drops out for whatever reason.
The central government will have a 60% share in PM SHRI scheme. For every school, 1.88 crore will be provided for five years. Centre will allocate Rs 955.98 crore for five years while state government will have to spend Rs 634.5 crore at the rate of Rs 75 lakh per school. In the second phase, PM SHRI schools will be selected from 408 blocks, 28 municipal corporations, 383 municipalities, and Nagar Parishads.
These will be developed on the basis of six main areas: curriculum, evaluation of teaching subjects, admission and basic facilities, human resources-school leadership, inclusive methodology, management, monitoring (administration), and beneficiary-solution.
