Latest provisions of NEP-2020, Nipun Bharat Mission & financial system, guidelines have been issued for formation of new school management committees
Uttar Pradesh school management committees in the government and aided primary and upper primary schools will now have 50% women representation. District Magistrates of the state have been given all the guidelines in this regard.
Principal secretary (basic education) Deepak Kumar said: “There will be 15 members in the school management committee, out of which 11 members will be parents or guardians of the children studying, but 50 percent of the members of the committee will be women.”
The tenure of the existing school management committees (SMCs) will end on November 30 and new ones will replace them.
Kumar said, “The remaining four members will include a member from amongst the elected members of the local authority to be decided by the local authority, a member to be taken from among the auxiliary nurse and midwives (ANMs), which shall be decided by the headmaster of the school; a lekhpal nominated by the district magistrate and one member shall be the head teacher of the school or, in case of non-appointment of the head teacher, the in-charge head teacher, who shall be the ex officio member-secretary of the committee.”
Parents or guardians of children belonging to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes, and weaker sections will be included as parent members of the (respective) school management committee, the order reads.
The order also says: “Only one school management committee will be constituted in primary, upper primary, and composite schools established in the same premises. The school management committee will be constituted in all Kasturba Gandhi Girls Schools of the state.”
The official said, “The work of formation of new school management committees in the schools is to be done during the period from November 20 to 30, so that the newly constituted school management committee can become functional from December 1.”
In view of the latest provisions of the National Education Policy-2020, Nipun Bharat Mission, and financial system, the guidelines have been issued for the formation of new school management committees in every school except unaided schools.
This committee will be reconstituted every two years. After the completion of 23 months of the tenure of the committee, the process of formation of a new school management committee should be started.
Before the end of the 24th month, the new committee should be constituted. The parent members of the school management committee will be selected by consensus in an open meeting. In case of dispute, a secret ballot will be conducted in the presence of the block education officer.
