The district magistrate has given a deadline of 15 days to all Noida schools to make sure that all the CBSE guidelines are followed and proper safety measures are taken to ensure the welfare of students.
The deadline was given in a meeting between the district magistrate, senior superintendent of police, school authorities and other officials from the transport and police department.
SSP Love Kumar also suggested few safety measures to school authorities and management. Schools were also told the transport guidelines provided by the Central Board of School Education.
DM BN Singh has asked all schools to do the police verification of all their staff members to ensure safety of kids. Administration will be sending a form to all the schools wherein they will have to provide all the essential details of their employees including the contractual ones, an official said.
Kumar also suggested putting wired fences on the top of school boundaries to avoid any mischievous person from entering the premises. He said it will also help in stopping those students who run away from schools to bunk their classes.
“Police verification is must for all the school staff. SP City is going to be available for school authorities to get the verification done,” said Love Kumar. He also suggested that there should be a dedicated person to monitor CCTV cameras and footages. Verification of employees should be done in a week’s time, Kumar suggested.
A training session to sensitize school staff and on transport guidelines will be taking place on September 17. The duration of the training will be three hours. DM has asked all the schools to send their teachers, drivers, conductors and the management persons to attend the training.
Schools have been asked to fulfil all the safety related requirements latest by September 30. “We will be checking each and every school to ensure that CBSE guidelines are followed properly. Strict action will be taken against those who will be found not taking the safety of students seriously,” said BN Singh.
Schools have been told to install CCTV cameras and GPS device in their buses. “No cost cutting should be applied on procedures meant for the safety of students. There should be a verified conductor and female guard present in the buses while picking up and dropping kids,” added Singh.
Schools authorities also registered their complain that parents also compromise on the safety of their children in order to save some money. “There is a requirement of a better understanding between the school authorities and parents to ensure smooth functioning with better safety measures,” said Colonel (retd) DK Farashwal, Administrative Principal from Step By Step school.
Institutes have been told clearly that if any of their buses are found to be crossing the speed limit of 40kms/hour then strict action will be taken against them.
