CBSE to reform accreditation criterion for its schools

After the official announcement of uniform assessment scheme, making the two-semester system mandatory from Class 6 onwards, CBSE has now planned to set up an accreditation framework for its affiliated schools. This step taken by CBSE, is to give more weightage to quality of education and learning outcomes rather than the fancy infrastructure of an institution.

The board has decided to take this necessary  step to make sure that schools are focusing on the quality of education rather than fancy classrooms and big-stylish buildings.

According to sources, the board has already approached the Quality Council of India, QCI to draft an approach paper to grade CBSE schools.  QCI is an autonomous body set up to establish and operate national accreditation structure.

However, this is not for the first time that CBSE is trying to come up with such framework for the schools. In year 2012, the board had also launched the School Quality Assessment and Accreditation, under which 12 agencies were roped in to examine and rate CBSE schools but later the project was junked.

“This being the CBSE’s second attempt at making accreditation mandatory will emphasise more on the  academic performance and learning outcomes of a school than its fancy infrastructure”, said an CBSE official.

He also added that the awarding of accreditation will signify that the school has met the set standards and will work to maintain those standards and improve in areas pointed out to them.
