KOZHIKODE: In a major move to ensure sanitation and waste processing in schools, the district administration ordered on Monday, to set up biogas plants in all schools within six months, thereby ensuring fuel to school kitchens. The decision was taken in a meeting of education officers and health officers held in the chamber of the District Collector heralding the academic year which will begin on Tuesday. District Collector U.V. Jose presided over the meeting and directed various Local Self Government (LSG) bodies and the respective school managements to cooperate with the district cleanliness mission to realise this objective. The capacities of individual plants will be decided considering the student strength in each school.

The district collector has issued directions to inspect waste management, environmental cleanliness, wells, provision of potable water, etc. School principals are required to give a detailed report to the respective officers and get approval from the Assistant Education Officers. The district collector also directed the AEOs to visit all schools to ensure the safety and sanitation of school buildings and premises, including drinking water, well, water tank, kitchen and store room.  The officials should also examine the damaged buildings and trees in the compound that pose threat to life.

 

The sub district-level education officers should seek reports from head teachers and also would submit a report to the District Education Officer.   The public can also inform about damaged buildings and trees that pose threat in the compound calling the toll free number 1077. Deputy director of education E.K. Sureshkumar addressed the meeting and various DEOs, AEOs, presented reports in the meeting which was attended by Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan district project officer A.K.
