Programs merger in view of restructuring
The merger of programs was initiated in the background of the restructuring drive in 2015 which was based on a thorough review of school performances that pointed to the need for streamlining management, quality, and enrolment. The programmatic restructuring is aimed at improving governance, assuring standardization and enhancing quality by improving school environment, academic capacity building and modernization of knowledge delivery.
The structural variances in the programmatic portfolio have been removed through various steps including revision of contracts, policy streamlining, mandatory appointment of head and subject teachers, and elimination of multi-grading of schools. Massive reforms in student enrolment have been introduced with emphasis on rationalization of student-teacher ratio and student-to-classroom ratio.
Early Childhood set ups, laboratories, playground and co-curricular facilities are being vigorously pursued. Necessary infrastructure for ICT-based learning has also been introduced. This is in addition to the emphasis on assuring environment-friendly schools (through clean energy) and promotion of healthy and hygienic environment with access to clean drinking water and toilet facilities.
FAS endeavors to shift the paradigm of SEF partners to an education-oriented social enterprise. SEF’s vision of quality education transcends access to basic schooling and improving literacy rates with a resolve to develop and implement viable models of academic delivery through public private and community partnerships, which are contextually relevant to the local needs; and, they directly contribute to the sustainable development of the communities being served.
