Database on schools to be ready soon

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The General Education Department has taken up a massive data capturing programme for creating a comprehensive database of high schools and higher secondary schools in the State.

The project has been taken up under the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), a sequel to the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. The nation-wide scheme covering classes IX, X, XI and XII, aims at ensuring universal access and quality in secondary education.

Following the directive of the Centre regarding the national-level implementation of the scheme, the State government had directed Principals and Headmasters of all recognised higher secondary and high schools in the State, including CBSE and ICSE schools, to compile data regarding their respective institutions for creating the Secondary Education Management Information System (SEMIS), an online database for planning and tracking the physical progress of RMSA project.
