There is a lot of scope for improving teaching-learning methods and equipments, use of educational technology like usage of TV, Computer in Government Schools.

The District Deputy Director of Public Instruction is permitted to approve the “Program of Action” prepared by the Donor and sign a Memorandum of understanding with the donor/corporate body/individual. A model M O U is also enclosed. This M O U is valid for a period of two years and can be renewed if the partnership is found to be fruitful with mutual consent.

The donor can put-up a Board on the school building stating that the school has been adopted by the donor.

The donors can take up any one or all the activities suggested in the Annexure or formulate their own proposals in this regard. The Department will provide all necessary support and ensure smooth processing of approvals of civic authorities wherever required.

The Deputy Director will appoint one nodal officer of the department to be in continuous contact with the donor to sort out any problems that may arise during the implementation of the project. All civil structures built by the donor in the school premises and all equipment provided by the donor to the school premises and all equipment provided by the donor to the school will become part of the school property and the ownership lies with school.
