CM Kejriwal announced on Saturday that the schools in Delhi will now have a state board of education of their own. The formation of a new state board for the schools in Delhi was initially hinted at by Deputy CM Sisodia almost a year ago.
It had also been announced that the process of converting schools to DBSE will start from the upcoming academic session. For CBSE schools, an academic session begins in the month of April every year. However, under DBSE the schools will begin their academic sessions from the month of July every year. The conversion process will initially start with de-affiliating around 20-25 CBSE schools to the newly formed Delhi Board of State Education (DBSE). However, the government believes that in five years or so, schools will voluntarily want to join DBSE.
The new state board of education in Delhi will be chaired by Education Minister Manish Sisodia and will be overseen by a governing body. The everyday activities of the board will be coordinated by an executive body headed by a CEO.
