Representatives of various schools met the district administration officials and raised their issues, concerning the safety and security measures for school students.

They have asked the administration to intervene and help solve those issues.

One of the major issues which was raised by school representatives before the district administration and police officials was about the verification of staff which they said they find it difficult to undertake despite submission of documents to police.

“We have been trying for the past three years to get the documents of our staff verified. The police tell us that the staff from outside cities will have to be verified at their native place. In such a case, the verification from our side is pending and never completed,” said Jyoti Gupta, principal, Delhi Public School Ghaziabad at Meerut Road.

SSP HN Singh told the gathering that a list of verification of staff should be submitted at the office of SSP and he will ensure that the verification is done in a time bound manner, whether of a local person or from outside the city.

“Our areas have several schools and more than 10,000 students come in the morning and move out in the afternoon after schools get over. In such a case, it becomes difficult to manage traffic and even outsiders arrive. We need traffic cops and women police personnel to manage the timings,” said VK Chopra, representative from DAV School.

The representatives of St Thomas School, Indirapuram apprised the officials about a liquor vend operating barely 300 metres from the school premises and also requested for installation of speed breakers outside the school premises.

“The CBSE guidelines say that the teachers should not be deputed on school transport duties. It becomes difficult for us to send teachers along with children in school buses. They sometimes refuse to cater to such activities,” said the representative.
