  1. SMC training: - SMC training is the main tool to create awareness in the Community for developing ownership and maintain a cordial relation between community and school by proper utilisation of resources in a shared vision towards quality improvement.

Major Activities to strengthen SMC members:-

  1. Meetings: -
  1. Monthly meeting: - Monthly meeting of executive committee members is mandatory for all the schools, which is to be conducted in first Saturday of the month or as feasibility of SMC and school administration.
  2. Meetings of Aam Sabha (General House):- Meeting of Aam Sabha (General House) named Shiksha Samwad to be conducted quarterly in all the schools throughout the state.
  1. Trainings: -SMC members and community are generally sensitized and oriented on their role and functions in the light of various interventions of Samagra Shiksha like declining in enrolment, non retention policy under CCE, learning outcomes, implementation of RTE, MDM, Girl child education, Health & Hygiene, fair Examination system, Drug Abuse, Plantation drive under Clean India Green India, Swachchh Bharat Mission, civil works, procurement procedures, Inclusive Education and Vocational Education etc.
  2. SMCs Training is to be conducted in two phases:-

Phase I:-

Training of Aam Sabha on the day of Shiksha Samwad:

  • 1st phase of Shiksha Samwad in the beginning of June month
  • 2nd phase of Shiksha Samwad on 5th September on Teachers’ Day
  • 3rd phase of Shiksha Samwad on 31st December
  • 4th phase of Shiksha Samwad on 31st March

Phase-II       Training of Executive Committee Members:

To create awareness & sensitize the community /SMC about their roles regarding various schemes of govt. under Samagra Shiksha, Community Mobilization campaigns / workshops at district and block level are organized. These programmes bridge the gap between school and community. Community and school partnership increase the participation, involvement and ownership among Community toward schools, hence school and community work together with a shared vision towards quality improvement in all the aspects.

 

  1. Community mobilization; It would be impossible for RTE as well as Samagra Shiksha to succeed without people’s support and ownership. The RTE mandate for age appropriate admission of every out-of-school child, special training for each child to enable his/her to cope in school, promoting child-friendly child centered and activity based learning processes, which is free of anxiety, trauma and fear sets the agenda for proactive community participation. Community participation would be a central and overarching factor in planning, implementation and monitoring interventions for universal elementary education. Samagra Shiksha is working towards enhancing participation of the community, parents, teachers and children by awareness generation and interventions for community mobilization. To facilitate such a massive mobilization and solicit active participation, state, district, block and cluster offices of Samagra Shiksha are need to join hands with experienced and active civil society organizations.

Community Mobilization activities:-

District, block and cluster level workshops: To create awareness & sensitize the community /SMC about their roles regarding various schemes of Govt. under Samagra Shiksha a Mega Drive for all stake holders is organized at district, block and cluster level involving politicians, administrators and other dignitaries to ensure the participation of Community at large scale. The learning outcomes, roles and drug abuse, Clean India-Green India, Uses & Misuses of Electronic Media and Beti Bachao Beti Padao and all round development of students are also ensured.
