In a recently held meeting, Nagpur CBSE schools have decided to send admission related details to the state education department by June 18 and reopen admissions for standard one, two days after that.
Almost all CBSE schools will start distributing admission forms from June 20 to meet provisions as mandated under the Right to Education (RTE).
City principals were briefed about the RTE modalities by Annapurni Shastri, principal, Bhavan’s Wathoda branch as she was in touch with the state education department.
The meeting was held under the banner of Nagpur Sahodaya Schools Complex (NSSC), the CBSE schools’ association, and was attended by 23 principals as some were not in city. Reena Dargan, secretary of NSSC and principal of Ira International, said, “We have members from other districts as well but their presence was not needed in this meeting and we wrote to them saying they should communicate directly with their respective education offices regarding details of implementing the RTE. In Nagpur, we all have decided to follow the Common Programme given by the deputy director of education’s office and reopen admissions from June 20.”
