Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (BOSE) has warned all the private schools of action for misleading parents and the students over their affiliation with the Board.
According to KNO, Secretary JKBOSE has issued a circular to all private academic institutions affiliated with them, cautioning against the use of misleading hoardings.
As per the circular, the private schools have been accused of duping unsuspecting students by using hoardings that falsely indicate they are affiliated with other recognized boards or imparting studies on other patterns.
To prevent such fraudulent practices, the circular states that all institutions must install signboards that clearly reflect the name of their institution with the “School Code” along with the name of the affiliating boards as “Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education” in bold letters.
To ensure adherence to the circular, the BOSE has directed all Deputy, Assistant, and Incharge Officers of the Sub and Branch Offices of the Kashmir Division to acquire an action taken report with GI-tagged photographic proof from all affiliated academic institutions in their respective domains.
The schools have been asked to submit the action taken report to the office of the Joint Secretary, General, Kashmir Division, within a period of seven working days.
An official said the directive is intended to provide the BOSE with firsthand information about the implementation of the circular.
“Such measures will prevent any further misleading of gullible students and ensure that academic institutions affiliated with the Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education maintain transparency in their operations,” the Board official said.
