VIJAYAWADA: On the first day of reopening of schools, the Education Department cracked the whip on unrecognised schools. Officials of the Education Department on Wednesday closed down Satyanarayanapuram branch of Narayana corporate school for conducting classes without recognition and imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh for ignoring four notices served on it. 

The parents of children staged a protest against the school management for keeping them in dark that it does not have recognition at the time of admissions.  

Speaking to TNIE, K Ravi Kumar, Deputy DEO of Krishna district, said, “We served notices on the school management on April 24, April 30, May 20 and June 1 directing it to get recognition. Despite getting notices, school management has failed to get recognition.”

The Deputy DEO assured that steps would be taken to ensure that the students do not lose an academic year and they would be accommodated in other schools. Attempts to contact the Narayana school management went in vain.
