Bihar has become the first state in the country to put complete details of classes I to VIII of all its 70,000 government schools online on the website SchoolReportCards.com. SchoolReportsCards.com is an online nationwide database assembled by the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA) on elementary education under its project – District Information System for Education (DISE). It provides information about schools in every district including details such as students, teachers, education status, phone number, development grant, school education, required number of classrooms, etc. The project by the NUEPA covers details about primary and upper primary schools in all districts over India. The project also has support from United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the Ministry of Human Resource Development. The website currently has information on 1.3 million schools across the nation. Bihar is the first state to have succeeded in providing information for all its schools on the portal by responding fast to DISE and asking all its schools' principals, block education officers and district superintendents of education to provide the necessary data and to ensure accuracy of the information. Also, to ensure that the information provided was correct, five percent schools have undergone a recheck by an independent agency.
