The department has appointed one nodal teacher in each of the 1.34 lakh schools. Across the state, 150 master trainers have been selected at the primary level and 225 at the upper primary level. These master trainers, who are government school teachers, will train Academic Resource Persons (ARPs) who will further guide nodal teachers.
The UP government told a meeting of the Project Approval Board (PAB) of the entire education campaign that they had identified three lakh out-of-school children through a family survey. Of these, 2.47 lakh were enrolled in government schools and the rest were in Kasturba Gandhi Girls School (KGBV) and private schools.
Out-of-school children will receive special training at the school where they are admitted and training will be conducted during school hours. Nodal teachers have been asked to hold out-of-school children so that they blend in academically and emotionally with other children.
Nodal teachers have also been asked to assess the academic level of such children from time to time and at the end of the training program. Such children will be brought into the mainstream as soon as they reach the required level, an official said.
As per the guidelines, the School Management Committee (SMC) will play a major role in bringing out-of-school children to regular school. Divisional officers have been asked to adhere to standards in providing learning materials and other support to OOSC. If poor quality material is detected, action will be taken against the principal.
Each out-of-school child will be given nine notebooks (English, Hindi and Maths), six pencils, two erasers and sharpeners each, geometry box, crayon, slate and chalk, sketch pen, chart paper and writing pad.
Singh asked the departmental officers to inspect the training program and upload the videograph on the Motivation Portal.
