The state education department has finalised a common admission schedule for the private schools, beginning this November, for admission to the entry-level classes in the next academic session.
The schools have been asked to display the admission information on the notice board and the website of the school, including the total number of seats, age requirement, fee structure, admission criteria and the documents required, on November 31. Between December 5 and 15, the schools have to issue and receive the reiteration or admission forms.
January 10 and 15 have been reserved for the draw and display of the selected list and waiting list. To keep minimum 10 days from display of list, January 16 to 25 has been kept aside for the deposit of fees of those from the list of selected candidates. If required, later, the students will be admitted from the waiting list from January 28 to 30.
"Common dates have been devised keeping in mind the fact that all schools should induct students in the same duration. This is to avoid the confusion that follows when parents get a call from a number of schools and end up depositing fees in more than one school," says District Education Officer Ram Kumar.
However, the DEO adds that the EWS (economically weaker sections) students are also to be admitted through the same procedure. The schools are to send the details regarding admission to the office of the District Education Officer by November 30 regarding the name of the entry-level class, age criteria for admitting students, total number of seats, admission criteria, documents required for admission and the fee structure.
However, the schools maintain that there has been no discussion with them over the issue as yet and that their opinion has not been sought. "There has not been a single meeting with the schools and the decisions have been taken single-handedly," says H S Mamik, president of Independent School Association. "Instead of the December holidays, we break for winter between January 1 and 15 when the department has planned something for admissions during this period. In such a case, how can they expect complete implementation (of the admission schedule)?"
