School Councils & Non-Salary Budget (NSB)

The School Education Department provides school specific Non-Salary Budget (NSB) to school councils to cover the recurrent costs of schools and to support student learning. Non-Salary related finances are funneled through these councils, making them responsible and accountable for planning, managing and budgeting of these funds effectively. It is hoped that through this, the school community will feel empowered to use these resources to mend the teaching and learning process and the overall school environment.

As an initial step, SED, has devised a strategy to enhance the capacity of these councils and improve utilization of resources. The strategy involves briefing on the School Council Policy and creating awareness about its member’s, Head teacher’s and AEO’s roles and responsibilities through 3D video’s, 2D infographics and posters. This content is being disseminated through the School Council App, which can be accessed through the Android Tabs available with School Teachers.

Monitoring and Evaluation

Monitoring and evaluation is an essential part of any project, it provides for a strong base for project management, transparency, accountability and development through efficient tracking of desired outcomes and indicators. The School Education Department, Punjab, through PMIU, ensures Monthly Monitoring of all 48,000 public schools in Punjab.

For this purpose, MEAs are randomly assigned to schools, where they visit and collect data on an android application. This android application includes a checklist of detailed indicators to collect data on attendance (teacher, student, non-teaching staff), infrastructure functionality (classroom, washroom, drinking water, furniture, boundary wall), and utilization of Non-Salary Budget. In addition, PMIU conducts a school census every year, collecting data from approximately 48,000 Public schools in Punjab. The census is a self-reported activity, and this year, for the first time the school census was conducted digitally via the School Information System (SIS)
