Delhi: Government awards schools with top management committees

December 29, 2023

In a commendable initiative, the Delhi government is set to confer the prestigious Excellence in Education Award on the school with the most exemplary management committee. The accolade, to be presented annually, signifies not only academic achievements but also the school’s commitment to fostering an optimal learning environment. The criteria for determining the winner include the impact on student attendance and the judicious use of funds.

Schools aspiring to clinch the coveted ‘School with Best Management Committee Award’ must submit their applications through the Head of School by January 2, 2024, as outlined by Delhi government officials. This meticulous selection process, based on the performance of schools during the 2022-23 academic session, ensures a thorough assessment of their contributions.

At the core of this recognition is the pivotal role played by School Management Committees (SMCs) established under the Right to Education Act. These committees have been instrumental in tirelessly working alongside schools to enhance parental participation. Evaluation criteria extend beyond academic benchmarks, encompassing key aspects such as the impact on student attendance, judicious use of funds, counseling services, creating a safe school environment, and active community engagement.

Delhi Education Minister Atishi underscored the significance of SMCs, stating, “The management committees raise the benchmark of what Delhi government schools can offer to our kids.” The minister emphasized how these committees not only meet educational standards but also set new benchmarks for excellence.

Moreover, the application process encourages schools to showcase their achievements and innovative practices, reflecting a commitment to creating a safe and inclusive space for children. The comprehensive assessment reinforces the holistic development of students, acknowledging the pivotal role that management committees play in shaping the educational landscape.

The forthcoming award ceremony, scheduled after a meticulous evaluation of applicants’ performances in the 2022-23 academic session, is poised to celebrate the collective dedication of schools and their management committees. This initiative underscores the Delhi government’s unwavering commitment to recognizing and promoting excellence in education, setting a benchmark for educational institutions in the capital city.
