Acting tough against the institutions failing to meet laid-down standards, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has de-recognised as many as five schools across the state this year.
The latest entrants to the list of de-recognised schools of CBSE in Patna include DAV Public School, BSEB, Punaichak, T Raza High School, Phulwarisharif, AVN School, Rajiv Nagar, Denobili Mission School, Pahari and Plasma Pathway School, Parsa Bazar.
According to the list of disaffiliated schools released recently by the CBSE on its website, a total of 16 schools located in different parts of the state have been derecognised. Of the total, 13 schools are situated in Patna, while the rest are located outside.
Officials of the CBSE said the board conducted survey and critical evaluation of infrastructure and academic facilities of various schools across last year and finally de-recognised 91 schools across the country.
Regional officer of CBSE, Patna, Rashmi Tripathi, however, said she could be able to speak in the issue of de-affiliation only after any official communication from headquarters reached her.
“I have also seen the latest notification on the website,” she said.
Acting principal of DAV Public School, BSEB, Indrajit Rai also expressed his ignorance about any step from the board to derecognise the school.
“We have not received any such letter from the board. I have just heard about it from media persons. I will try to find out the ways to deal with the crisis as soon as I return Patna,” he added.
Rai, however, expressed his bafflement over the way the school has been de-recognised, saying that it was improper and would go against the interest of students enrolled.
Other schools, which were either disaffiliated or denied affiliation are AVN English School, SK Puri, Doon Public School, Indira Nagar, St Michael High School, Rupaspur, National Convent High School, BM Das Road, New Delhi Public School, North SK Puri, Patna Muslim High School, Bankipore, Sharon Public School, Rupaspur, Patna Sherwood School, Rajiv Nagar and Sindhu Public School, Sampatchak.
Gandhi Shikshan Sansthan, Shubhankarpur, Darbhanga, and Ramashray Roy Public School of Darbhanga, and one school of Munger have also be delisted from the CBSE recognised schools.
