With an increasing number of schools going 'international'
worldwide, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has created a Foreign
Schools Cell (FSC) which will ensure that CBSE schools outside India are given
the right academic and administrative support.
The FSC, based out of Delhi, will take care of CBSE
affiliated schools in 25 countries worldwide. It will serve as a single-point
contact for foreign schools to coordinate and resolve complaints and look into
the needs of more than 60,000 students who have registered with the Board."
"In view of large number of schools in 25 countries and
60,300 candidates registered from Classes IX to XII, a Foreign Schools Cell is
hereby created in the Regional Office, Delhi," the circular posted on the
Board's website said.
Keeping in mind the large number of candidates registered
with the Board, the FSC will be staffed with two superintendent rank officials
in addition to senior CBSE official Sanjay Sachdeva, who currently in-charge of
the CBSE-i unit. Issues regarding affiliation, academics, examinations,
publications and coordination will be dealt with by these officials.
