To ensure that the UT education department has requisite details of local schools for the ongoing nursery admissions, the district education officer (DEO) on Tuesday sent out a notice to the heads of all unaided private schools, asking them to submit information regarding their admission procedure and criteria by December 14.

The education department has asked for details, including name of entry class, age criteria, total number of sections/seats in entry class (category-wise break-up of seats), category wise admission criteria and admission procedure (see box for details).

Sources in the education department said this move marks the precautionary attitude being adopted by the department officials this year in order to ensure a transparent common admission process in the tricity schools.

Talking to HT, DEO Vinay Sood said, “It is simply to gather data before the list of eligible candidates is compiled by the respective schools for various official purposes.”

A principal of a local private school, requesting anonymity said, “Since the form does not ask for details like minority quota, sibling reservation, staff quota, alumni seats and other such categories, it means we are free to form our own policies.” Since no disclosure will be made regarding preferred categories, the schools feel they are not answerable for making policies on their own in this regard.
