School Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla on Thursday said the state government had decided to install broadcasting systems at government senior secondary schools for optimum use of teaching and non-teaching staff. Under the first phase, the department has released a grant of Rs 1.54 crore for installing the systems in 616 schools.
“A total of 40 schools in Sangrur district have also been selected under the first phase, for which a grant of Rs 10 lakh has already been released to the District Education Officer. Installation of a broadcasting system would reduce the workload on the school staff and enable the principals to broadcast the directions to all teachers, students and non-teaching staff in one go,” said the minister.
About other aspects of the broadcasting system, Singla said each system would cost around Rs 25,000, which would comprise of an amplifier, a mike, a selective classroom multi-switch, individual speakers and required wires. Tribune India
