Strengthening School Management Committee

By Kapil Joshi | Reporting and Communications Manager

Strengthening School Management Committee for improving quality of education

In 2016 PHASE conducted a series of Teacher Training and School Mentorship program in 11 schools in Kolti Village Development Committee (VDC). 58 teachers were trained and 18 outstanding teachers were provided additional training for mentoring their fellow teachers in the schools. The aim of the program is to improve access to and quality of education. PHASE also initiated follow up program of creating model classrooms and also supported in the capacity building of School Management Committee (SMC) for effective school governance. The SMC were trained and oriented as part of their awareness raising and capacity building. One of the core aims of the project was to empower two important bodies of school governance for the betterment of the school, the School Management Committee (SMC) and the Parents Teacher Association (PTA). Through this project, PHASE Nepal helped to organize regular meetings of the PTA and SMC in the schools with the expressed goal of making parents and school officials more aware of their specific roles and responsibilities in the overall management of the school including the quality of instruction. A total of 85 PTA and SMC members from 12 schools of Kolti village received the first orientation and training session from PHASE. As a direct consequence of their participation in these trainings PTA and SMC members become more aware of the powerful and positive role they can play in school management and governance.

Before participating in this training, the chairpersons of the school management committees in Kolti, would hardly dare to question school directives that came from the principals as the principals are considered educated and having a higher social status than other community members. After the training, however, these same SMC and PTA members realized their roles and responsibilities in improving the quality of education in the school through their active participation and input in decision making. The PTA and SMC members in the schools we worked with, now appreciate the legal authority and moral responsibility they have with respect to the effective management of the schools. Raju Devkota, SMC member of Chandranath Lower Secondary School said “I felt that school management committee should be more serious about improving the schools, not just relying on the principal to do everything.” These SMCs and PTA will receive a follow up orientation and additional training sessions during the duration of the project period. They were thankful for the continued support PHASE Nepal has been providing to schools to improve the quality of education.
