Deputy Commissioner V. Anbukkumar has warned the managements of private schools against collecting excess fees or donation at the time of admission and has put forth a timetable for the admission process due to begin next month.
Many parents had complained that private schools take anywhere between Rs.10,000 to one lakh as donations.
Schedule of the forthcoming academic year 2012-13:
April 10 – display along with details of the number of seats available in each class.
April 20 and 30 – distribution of forms
April 30 – last date of receipt of forms
May 3 – display merit list of students along with the list of rejected candidates
May 5 – last date for submission of complaints/objections
May 6 – Final list of selected candidates
May 15 – All selected candidates should take admissions
May 16- Second list of students for unfilled seats, if any
May 20 – All admissions must complete
Similar schedule was brought out last year as well but not many followed it.
And donations are now taken in form of THIRD party donations and that too once the school starts and not during this period, a parent told this blog.
If you are parent of a child aged between 2 years 10 months and less than 4 years 10 months as on June 1, 2012 then you all need to go through this.
Now this is the most important criteria, even if the age of the child is less or more by a single day you do not qualify for the Junior KG(LKG) admissions in this case.
If you are looking for Nursery admissions you should look for 2 years 10months and less than 3 years 10 months.
For LKG the child must have completed 3years 10 moths as of June 2012.
