    State government has issued an order establishing two committees

    Committee led by DCM DK Shivakumar to implement the program

    Plan involves the development of 2,000 Karnataka Public Schools (KPS)

Continuing with its initiative to engage private entities in enhancing the quality of government schools, the state government has issued an order establishing two committees, with one being led by the Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar, to implement the program.

The plan involves the development of 2,000 Karnataka Public Schools (KPS) catering to pre-primary to II PU levels, including bilingual sections.

Initially introduced in 2017-18 with 176 schools, the current count stands at 285. The Congress government aims to leverage the expertise and resources of diverse partners, such as civil society and corporations. In the pilot phase, 500 schools will be selected, ensuring one school per three gram panchayats, each situated on three acres of land. To tap into Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds, suitable plots for building facilities will be identified, along with private school teachers willing to collaborate with their government counterparts.

To oversee financial proposals, establish timelines, and collaborate with other stakeholders, two committees have been formed. The supervisory committee, chaired by Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivkumar, includes ministers from school education, IT&BT, women and child welfare, rural development, and panchayati raj, along with members from large, medium, and small-scale industries. Simultaneously, the executive committee, with the development commissioner as chairperson, will handle the implementation process.

The Karnataka Public Schools, known for their English-medium sections and robust infrastructure, have gained immense popularity, especially in rural areas.
