VISAKHAPATNAM: A team of the Supreme Court officials will visit the district for two days from Tuesday to inspect the implementation of the Right to Education (RTE) Act.
The team will verify whether basic amenities especially the toilets are available at the schools. According to collector N Yuvaraj, the team would visit various government schools on August 21 and 22.
He held a review meeting with RDOs and MDOs Monday and informed them that a route map was been prepared for the team. However, there was no confirmation on whether the SC team would follow the route map. The collector alerted the officials concerned to take steps to ensure toilets were built at every school in the district.
Yuvaraj said the administration had already sanctioned 1,738 toilets to about 1,000 schools. He directed the officials to complete the works in the next three days.
He directed the officials to replace the existing contractors wherever the works were not completed.
