After a week’s delay, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 10 results of St Kabir Public School, Sector 26, were declared on Friday. After the school management got a mail from the regional CBSE office to go ahead and declare the results of 113 students who had appeared for the exam, the school shared the result through their intranet portal (school pad) with parents.
A total of 38 students got 10 CGPA. Speaking to HT, school adminsitrator Gurpreet Singh Bakshi said, “We are happy with the students’ performance. We declared the result after getting directions from the CBSE regional office through e-mail.” The results will, however, be uploaded on the CBSE website on Monday.
Despite repeated efforts, the CBSE regional officer RK Khanderao could not be contacted. Meanwhile, a day after a local advocate PP Singh had submitted a complaint on behalf of parents on the issue of late declaration of Class-10 results of the school with the Chandigarh Commission for Protection of Child Rights (CCPCR) on Thursday, a meeting was held at Snehalaya, CCPCR office, Maloya, on Friday.
While school management and parent representatives attended the meeting, no CBSE official was present. Panel chairperson Devi Sirohi contacted a senior official at the Delhi HQ asking them to look into this. Sirohi said, “In order to know the reason behind the delay, we have summoned the CBSE regional officer, along with other stakeholders, on Monday at 3pm.” After getting a letter from a student’s father R Singh, the CBSE chief vigilance officer, Delhi, has sent a mail marked to their regional officer at Panchkula, directing him to resolve the issue at the earliest.
Section officer, CBSE, Panchkula, Lily Tikrey, who had been officially communicating with the school authorities, has also been summoned by the panel on Monday.
