DHUBRI: Dhubri district was declared on the top of the list in Assam by Niti indicators and Delta ranking position last week. This encouraged the Dhubri district administration to take up ongoing educational programmes with rejuvenated and innovative ways.
This is for the second year that the Dhubri district administration is going to launch enrolment and transition in schools after having done so successfully last year under the flagship of Utsav Bidhyarambh in collaboration with the Education Department and Piramal Foundation. However, the launching pad of this programme is under the umbrella of Amar Bidhayalaya Amar Abhiman-2.0.
In this connection, a meeting of all stakeholders was held at Dhubri District Library with Dhubri Deputy Commissioner Anant Lal Gyani in the chair on Tuesday.
In the meeting, implementing modes of this programme to increase the enrollment in schools ensuring 100 per cent transition of students to higher classes and other important and innovative ideas were also discussed in threadbare.
Speaking in the meeting, Gyani appreciated all the stakeholders and spoke at a length on the upcoming plans and programme related to the campaign and other school processes such as library, building as learning aid, students’ parliament and Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) with them.
“You must keep the target in focus to achieve 100 per cent transition rate and 70 per cent student learning outcome focusing on basic skills on Mathematics and Language in the district,” Gyani said. Gyani also emphazised on free textbook distribution and school management committee to take active participation in school activities.
