To assist the members of school management committees (SMCs) in their functioning, Delhi Government is gearing up to launch a mobile app. SMCs in the capital city have 16 members each comprising a teacher, a principal, 12 parents, an MLA and a social activist. With special consideration, the government had last year directed the committees to ensure bigger role for parents in running schools across the city. According to a government official, the launch of the mobile app will not only help SMCs connect with their members, but also serve as a tool to maintain school records.
