Digital Learning Scheme In KVs, Odisha
On the other hand, from next academic session, digital learning scheme is likely to be introduced in some more Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) in Odisha. This will enable students of classes VII and VIII to use tablets for science and mathematics. "We expect that the scheme will be rolled out in at least five more KVs, including Berhampur, in the state from the next academic year. We are planning to submit a proposal in this regard to the KVS soon," said Deputy Commissioner, KVS Bhubaneswar region, ALV Jaganadha Rao.
On October 2017, Ministry of Human Resource Development decided to rank close to 1200 KVs in the country. According to the decision, with maximum 1,000 points, the KVs would be graded under four categories, with 80 per cent and above (excellent) under A category, 60-79.9 per cent (very good) in B category, 40-59.9 per cent (Good) in C, and below 40 per cent (average) in D. Schools will be assessed under seven parameters: academic performance which will carry the highest weightage of 500 points, followed by school infrastructure (150 points) and school administration (120 points). Other heads under which schools would be marked include finance (70 points), community participation (60 points), grace points (90 points) and overall observation by the inspectors (10 points).
