Scheme for setting up of 6000 Model Schools at Block Level as benchmark
of excellence

1.        Background:

1.1       Secondary education was not a thrust area during the Tenth Plan period.                  There
were a few small schemes to enhance access and to improve quality, but the coverage
was   neither   large  nor   comprehensive.      The  plan   schemes   concentrated   on   continuing
the school systems run by autonomous organizations of MHRD and included efforts for
integrated     education    for  the   disabled,   girls’  education    through    provision    of  hostel
facilities,   use   of   ICT   in   schools,   vocationalisation   of   higher   secondary   education   and
open and distance learning.

1.2.      Since   universalisation     of  elementary    education   has    become     a  Constitutional
mandate,      it  is  absolutely   essential    to  push   this   vision  forward    to  move    towards
universalisation   of   secondary   education,   which   has  already   been   achieved   in   a   large
number of developed countries and several developing countries. Paras 5.13 – 5.15 of
the National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986 (as modified in 1992) deal with Secondary
Education.    Para 5.13 of the NPE, inter- alia, stated that,

         “Access to Secondary Education will be widened with emphasis on enrolment of
         girls,   SCs    and    STs,    particularly    in  science,     commerce       and   vocational

1.3.     CABE Committees

1.3.1.    A   Committee     of  Central    Advisory    Board   of  Education     (CABE),    the   highest
deliberative body in secondary education, on “Universalisation of Secondary Education”
was constituted in September 2004. The Committee in its report submitted in June 2005,
inter   alia,   had   recommended   certain   norms   regarding  facilities   in   Secondary   Schools.
These norms are broadly based on the norms for Kendriya Vidyalayas.

1.3.2.    Besides the Committee on Universalisation of Secondary Education, CABE had
also,   at   the   same   time,   set   up   another   Committee   on   “Girls’   Education   &   Common
School System”.  The Committee has recommended, inter alia, that:

“…….State should invest in public schools system with standards, norms, building, etc.,
with the same standards as that of Kendriya Vidyalayas”.

1.4.      The   Central   Government   is   committed   to   make   secondary   education   of   good
quality available, accessible and affordable to all young persons. A major initiative for
expanding secondary education will be taken up in the 11th Plan. The norm would be to
provide   a   secondary   school   within   5   KMs.   and   a   higher   secondary   school   within   a
distance of 7-8 KM of every habitation by the end of 11th Five Year Plan. The GER of

secondary education is targeted to increase from 52% in 2004-05 to 75% in 2011-12.
Similarly, GER for higher secondary level   is targeted from 28% to 45-50% during the

11th Plan. The general objective is to universalise secondary education (up to class 10)
by the end of the 12th Plan. During the 11th Plan, while access to secondary education
will   be   universalised,   there   will   be   adequate   focus   on   quality   improvement.   Not   only
universal   enrolment,   but   universal   retention   and  satisfactory  quality  of   learning   will   be
the priority. In spite of the effort to expand access to quality secondary education, there
will be need to have high quality schools for talented rural children, who may not be in a
position to access quality schools in urban areas, without compromising Government’s
commitment to common school system.

2.        Prime Minister’s Independence Day Announcement

2.1.      Prime Minister in his Independent Speech, 2007, has, inter alia, stated, as under:

         “   I  request   states    to  give   priority  to  education,    as   education     alone   is  the
foundation on which a progressive, prosperous society can be built.                    Growing revenue
earnings have improved the fiscal capacity of the States.               They must now give priority to

Towards   this   end,   our   Government   has   decided   to   invest   in   setting   up   good   quality
schools across the country.          We will support 6,000  new high quality schools – one in
every block of the country.        Each such school will set standards of excellence for other
schools in the area.”

2.2.      In   the   meeting   of   the   full   Planning   Commission   held   on   13.9.2007,   the   Prime
Minister in his opening remarks has, inter alia, stated

          “To kick start the initiative, the proposal for setting up 6000 high quality model
         schools with costs to be shared by the Centre and the State needs to finalized
         within the next few weeks.         The mechanism for setting up and managing these
         schools   –   whether   in   the   government   sector   or   through   private   partnership   in
         some      aspects    –  should    be   worked    out   by  MHRD,      in  consultation    with   the
         Planning   Commission.          It   must   be   recognized   that   about   60%   of   secondary
         schools     are   under    private   management        and   the   Ministry   and    the  Planning
         Commission should focus on incorporating the role of the private sector wherever
         possible.    An outline of the proposal should be available within two months.”

3.        The concept of Model school: Basically a model school will have infrastructure
and facilities of the same standard as in a Kendriya Vidyalaya and with stipulations on
pupil -teacher ratio, ICT usage, holistic educational environment, appropriate curriculum
and emphasis on output and outcome. Some of the key features of a model school will
(i)       Education     provided     in  a  Model    school    should    be holistic   and    integral
         touching upon physical, emotional and aesthetic development in addition to

(ii)      Either brand new schools may be established or existing schools may be
         converted in to Model schools.

(iii)     Necessary      infrastructure   will  be   provided    in  such   schools    not   only   for

         Facilities   like   play   ground,   gardens,   auditorium   etc.   will   be   provided   in
         Model schools.

(iv)      The curriculum should cast the local culture and environment and learning
         should be activity based.

(v)       These schools will have adequate ICT infrastructure, Internet connectivity
         and full time computer teachers.

(vi)      The Teacher Pupil Ratio should not exceed 1:25 and the classrooms will
         be    spacious     enough     to  accommodate        at  least  30   students.    However,
         classroom-students ratio will not exceed 1:40.

(vii)     These   schools   will   be   provided   with   Arts   and  Music   Teachers   besides
         subject specific teachers as per the usual norms. These schools will also
         create facility for activities emphasizing Indian heritage and art & craft.

(viii)    Special    emphasis      may    be   given   on   teaching    of  Science,     Maths    and
         English. If required, bridge-courses may be introduced for weak students.

(ix)      The    school    curricula   should    include    the   material/items     that   inculcate
         leadership qualities, team spirit, participation abilities, development of soft
         skills and ability to deal with real life situations.

(x)       Health Education and health check up will be introduced in these schools.

(xi)      A good library with books and magazines for students and teachers will be

(xii)     Field trips and educational tours will be an integral part of the curriculum.
        (xiii)    Medium of instruction will be left to State Governments. However, special

4.        Implementation

4.1.     3500   of   the   6000   model   schools   will   be   set   up   in   the   Educationally   Backward
Blocks   (EBBs)   on   Kendriya   Vidyalaya   template.   Another   2,500   schools   will   be   set   up
under Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode.

4.2       Model schools on Kendriya Vidyalaya norms

         In    view    of   the    recommendations          of   the   two    CABE      Committees        on
“Universalisation   of   Secondary   Education”   and   “Girls’   Education   &   Common   School
System”   to   adopt   Kendriya   Vidyalaya   norms   in   expansion   of   school   system   and   for
investment in schools conforming to Kendriya Vidyalaya norms, it is proposed that the
high    quality   model    schools    may    broadly    have   infrastructure    facilities  of  the  same
standard   as   in   a   Kendriya   Vidyalaya   and   with   stipulations   on   pupil   teacher   ratio,   ICT
usage, holistic educational environment, appropriate curriculum and emphasis on output
and outcome.       It is, therefore, proposed that 3,500 Model Schools to be established in
Educationally Backward Blocks (EBB) under the management and supervision of State
Governments and the 2,500 schools under PPP mode, should basically conform to the
norms of Kendriya Vidyalayas, although the funding pattern and management structure
will be different.

4.3.      3500     Model     schools      on    Kendriya      Vidyalaya       template      under     State

         Governments free of cost.
     •   Selection of the schools:            Every Educationally Backward Block(EBBs), as per
         the   list  drawn   up   by   the   Ministry   of  Human   Resource   Development,   will   be
         eligible to get one model school in KV template. The State/UT Governments are
         free to establish brand new schools or select existing schools for conversion as
         Model schools.
    •    Medium of instructions:             The   medium   of   instructions   is   left   to   the   State/UT
         Governments.   However,   special   emphasis   will   be   given   on   English   teaching   &
         spoken English.
    •    Classes:         The   State/UT   governments   will   have   the   option   to   establish   the
         school either with classes VI to XII or with classes IX to XII.
    •    Management: These schools will be run by State Government societies similar to
    •    Construction:
                Construction of the school buildings will be done by the State societies.
                The norms will be provided by KVS/ State PWD.
                State   Governments   will   also   have   the   option   to   get   the   school   building
                  constructed through public private partnership.

    •     The buildings will be designed as earthquake resilient and will be equipped with
         fire safety measures
    •     Use of solar and other renewable energy will be encouraged and buildings will be
         designed appropriately wherever possible.

4.4.      2500 schools under Public Private Partnership mode

2,500 schools will be set up under Public Private Partnership (PPP) model. The exact
modalities   of   the   PPP   model   will   be   worked   out   by   the   Ministry   of   Human   Resource
Development        separately    in  consultation    with  the   Planning    Commission,      the  State
Governments and other stake holders.

5.        Admission

Admission in 3,500 schools under State Governments will be through an admission test
conducted by the State societies managing the model schools. Tests will be conducted
block wise, i.e., students residing in a particular block will compete for the school in that
block. Existing reservations will apply.
