The department has appointed one nodal teacher each in 1.34 lakh schools. Across the state, 150 master trainers have been shortlisted at primary level and 225 at upper primary level. These master trainers, who are government school teachers, will impart training to the academic resource persons (ARPs) who will further guide nodal teachers.

The UP government, during a meeting of the Project Approval Board (PAB) of Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan, said that it had identified three lakh out-of-school children through a household survey. Of these, 2.47 lakh were enrolled in government schools while the remaining were in Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas (KGBV) and private schools.

The out-of-school children will get special training in the same school where they are enrolled and training will be held during school hours. Nodal teachers have been asked to handhold out-of-school children to ensure they mix with other kids, academically and emotionally.

Nodal teachers have also been asked to evaluate the academic level of such children from time to time and also at the end of the training programme. Such children would be brought into the mainstream only after they attain the requisite level, an officer said.

As per the instructions, the school management committees (SMCs) will play a major role in bringing out-of-school children to school regularly. The departmental officials have been asked to adhere to quality in providing learning material and other aids to OoSC. In case poor quality material is detected, principals will be taken to task.

Each out of school child will be given nine notebooks (English, Hindi and mathematics), six pencils, two erasers and sharpeners each, geometry box, crayons, slate and chalk, sketch pen, chart papers and writing pad.

Singh has also asked divisional officers to inspect the training programme, and videograph and upload it on Prerna portal.
