  Primary Education*

       The district considers education fundamental to development. In line with the Govt. declared policy to achieve Universalization of Elementary Education (UEE), the district always remains geared up for the effective implementation of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) aimed to achieve this golden goal. The Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), as the most important flagship programme of GOI as mandated by 86th amendment to the Constitution of India stands for free and compulsory Education to the Children of 6-14 years age group.

Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan
       Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA), the flagship programme of the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), has the highest budgetary allocation even more than the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) . It is being implemented to achieve the Goal of the Universalization of Elementary Education (UEE). It emphasizes on quality education to all children of the age group 5 to 14 years. Sarva Shisha Abhiyan includes, among other elements, enrolment and retention drive, civil works, Teachers' empowerment, School Grants and Maintenances Grants, Community Mobilization, Alternative Schooling, Computer Aided Learning (CAL), Learning Enhancement Programme (LEP), Management Information System (MIS) etc. To implement ‘Zero Rejection Policy’, SSA intervenes with girls’ education, Children with Special Needs (CWSN) and hardest to reach Children. It also emphasizes on opening of new Schools where required, strengthening existing school infrastructure providing Additional Class Rooms (ACRs), Drinking Water, Common Toilets, Girls’ Toilets and Barrier free Toilets for CWSN etc. National Programme for Education of Girls at Elementary Level (NPEGEL) and Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV) also run to fulfill national commitment of Universal Elementary Education. The District Project Office of Sarva Shiksha Mission, Cooch Behar facilitates all these interventions of this District with synergy of contribution of School Level Monitoring Committees (SLMCs), Village Education Committees (VECs), Ward Education Committees (WECs), Managing Committees (MCs), Circle Resource Centres (CLRCs), Sub-divisional Working Groups (SWGs) and others.
