117-point checklist by Delhi government to schools on student safety


In view of increasing cases of mishaps and crimes in schools, the Delhi government has issued schools a 117-point checklist for ensuring student safety in their premises and warned that there would be “zero tolerance” for any violation. The checklist includes everything from toilets to cyber security. Among the points listed are school safety committees, monthly safety walks to identify loopholes in security in the premises, securing boundary walls with grills, CCTV surveillance, maintaining records of every entry into the school and restricting visitors.
