City schools feel CBSE safety guidelines are 'difficult' to implement

Neither government nor private schools offer a safe environment for kids Make sure that school is the safest place after home

The notification demands that schools must get their respective local police station to conduct a security and safety audit of their personnel as well as premises.

Besides installing CCTV cameras at all vulnerable areas/points on school premises, schools had been asked to ensure that these were functional.

The Supreme Court on Friday sought responses from the Centre and all State governments after hearing a plea seeking framing of "non- negotiable" child safety conditions and implementation of guidelines to protect school children from sexual abuse and murder.

The guidelines say that each school must have child abuse monitoring committee with two students as representatives and thorough police verification was needed before employing a person in a school, it said. Also, proper feedback should be taken by the parents for the same.

Notably, the circular is the result of numerous alarming incidents that have occurred in schools across the country, the recent being the murder of a seven-year-old boy at Ryan International School in Gurugram.

The study further mentions almost 50% of the school-going children interviewed said they were sexually abused.

CBSE has 19,500 affiliated schools under its umbrella and has made it mandatory for all to perform a psychometric evaluation of all its staff and submit the report.

The notice comes a day after Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar asked the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take over the probe.

The schools have also been asked to constitute separate committees for redressal of grievances of the public, staff, parents and students, an internal complaints committee on sexual harassment and committees under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offence Act, 2012. Every child going to school should be free of fear to keep her psychologically healthy, says Kashyap.The National Progressive Schools' Conference, an association of over 1,000 private schools in Delhi, has a slightly different view.

"We will be taking over the administration of the school and we would like to open the school soon on Monday itself so that children don't have any issue with academics", Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh told media.
