Schools start posting nursery criteria onlineTimes of India 26-December 2012New Delhi: With nursery admissions starting in less than a week, schools have begun posting their admission criteria points allotted to parameters or categories for drawing lots on their websites.At the recent meeting of the Delhi School Education Advisory Board, school bodies promised increased weight to distance. While points for distance have increased, the increase is not appreciable in most schools.The sibling category still claims a large chunk along with the alumni category.Tagore International School, Vasant Vihar, has allotted 30 points the maximum for eldest child and 20 for distance and that too for Areas where school transport is available. Delhi Public School R K Purams junior wings at East of Kailash and Vasant Vihar havent declared their distribution of points yet but principal D. R. Saini confirms increase of points for distance but by only one. Distance points have increased from 26 to 27, 12 to 13 for alumni, six to seven for single parents and six to seven for girl child. But this increase has been achieved not through redistribution of points but by increasing the total number from 94 to 100. We follow the RTE for the definition of neighbourhood. It is 27 points for the first kilometer, 21 for three and 15 for six, says Saini.    At Bal Bharti School, Pusa Road the categories are what they were last year EWS (25%), management (20%), sibling (20%), alumni (5%), general category (30%) and lots will be drawn for each. There is no separate category for distance but only those living within 7 km are eligible to apply. Bal Bharti Pitampura is following the same system. Sanskriti School has only 10% seats for general category and has allotted a maximum of 25 points the same as last year for distance; its 20 points for siblings, 5 for alumni.    Bal Bhavan Public School, Mayur Vihar, has also released its list a maximum of 30 points for neighbourhood (same as last year) and 20 for siblings; Richmondd Global School, Paschim Vihar, has allotted the same number of points 30 for neighbourhood but 25 for siblings. However, there are schools like Ahlcon International, Mayur Vihar and Bloom Public School which award as much as 40 and 50 points respectively for distance.    Social Jurist Khagesh Jha said the definition of neighbourhood should be standardized. Some schools mean the areas on bus routes while some specify where they want students from. There are schools giving points for students living 20 kilometers away when they should be following the RTE prescribed break up of one-three-six kilometers, says Jha.Information gathered from Internet Click Here
