Pune: Students unhappy with the school allotted to them under the Right to Education (RTE) Act can participate in the next round of admissions as part of a betterment scheme.
The betterment option, usually available to students seeking admissions to first year junior college, has now been introduced for admissions to the 25% seats reserved under the RTE Act.
Dinkar Temkar, deputy director of education, Pune region, said, “If students fail to take admission in the first round for some reason, seats have been filled up in the school allotted or students are caused inconvenience, they can opt for the betterment option. They can continue to stay in the admissions process to find a better option.”
Meanwhile, as many as 2,000 parents in the city are yet to receive a notification regarding allotment of school for their children. A total of 781 schools have been eligible for RTE admissions this year. The education office has declared three admission rounds so far. In the third round declared on July 5, as many as 2,298 students were allotted seats.
