5-day week plan for Kendriya Vidyalaya kids

Kids, maybe its time to say “Yay”!
Some five lakh children studying in classes I to V in about 1,100 Kendriya Vidyalayas in the country may get two days off every week instead of only Sunday from the coming academic year.
The board of governors of the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) will meet tomorrow to consider a proposal to switch to a five-day-week schedule for children in these classes from 2014-15.
The new schedule may not be applicable for teachers.

An expert committee set up by the KVS had suggested the change to conform to a provision under the Right to Education (RTE) Act, which provides for 200 days of schooling for children in primary classes and 220 days for kids in upper primary classes.
If approved, the new schedule will give students more time for self-paced learning and pursuing hobbies, a KVS source said. The six-day-week schedule will remain unchanged for upper-primary classes (VI to VIII).
The KVS is also planning to prescribe 45 hours of work in a week for teachers, in line with the RTE Act. Now, a teacher in a Kendriya Vidyalaya puts in 37 hours a week. A source, however, said the board of governors, headed by human resource development minister M.M. Pallam Raju, might not approve the 45-hour plan.
