Now, getting information from the Department of Public Instructions is just a click away. The department on Tuesday launched a public-friendly comprehensive system Vidyavahini through which anybody can get updates form the education department.
Primary and secondary education minister Kimmane Rathnakar inaugurated the portal , which could be accessed through the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA) website www.ssakarnataka.gov.in for details.
Vidyavahini will have detailed information about all the programmes and projects, starting from civil work to mid-day meals. “Currently we have updated details of all the programmes between 2001 and 2013. By entering Vidyavahini, people can get complete information and updates about each and every school,” Rathnakar said.
He directed officials to concentrate on school adoption. “It is not possible to provide complete infrastructure to all the schools. So, we have decided to involve donors,” he added. However, to monitor the school adoption programme, the department is constituting a development committee at each school and one who donates the highest amount will be made the president for the school development committee and the elected representatives will be their honourary presidents.
