Ensuring cent percent schooling access to all school age children in the age group of 6 to 14 as envisaged in Tamil Nadu Right of children to free and Compulsory Education Rules, 2011 is one of the main objectives of SSA Mission. To ensure the status of Schooling Access in all the habitations in the State, both at primary and upper primary levels a scientific tool- GIS Mapping has been developed based on the norms provided in the Tamil Nadu Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Rules, 2011.

The State government has notified the Children Right of Free and Compulsory Education Rules vide G.O(Ms) No.173, School Education (C2) Department dated 08.11.2011. State’s definition on neighbourhood schools is presented below.

  1. The area or limits of neighbourhood within which a school shall be established by the State Government is,
    • a distance of one kilometer in respect of children in classes I to V,
    • a distance of three kilometers in respect of children in classes VI to VIII.
    • a distance of five kilometers in respect of children in classes VI to x
    • a distance of five kilometers in respect of children in classes VI to XII

    Provided that where it is not possible to establish within such area or limits, the State Government or the local authority shall make adequate arrangements, such as free transportation and residential facilities, for providing elementary education to the children in that area.

    Provided further that in places with high population density, the State Government shall establish more than one school having regard to the number of children in the age group of 6-14 years in such as places based on census conducted by Sarva Shiksha abhiyan or the local authority.

  2. Wherever required, the State Government or the local authority shall upgrade existing schools with classes I to V to include classes from VI to VIII.
  3. In places with difficult terrain, risk of landslides, floods or lack of proper roads and approach from their homes to the school, the State Government or the local authority shall locate the school in such manner as to avoid such dangers, by reducing the area or limits specified above.

For children from small hamlets, as identified by the State Government or local authority where no schools exists within area or limits of neighbourhood specified above the State Government or local authority shall make adequate arrangement such as free transportation and residential facilities for providing elementary education in a school, in relaxation of the area or limits specified above.
  5. The basis of the identification of the neighbourhood school shall be the School Mapping carried out by the State Government or the local authority.

  7. The State Government or the local authority shall ensure that access of children to the school is not hindered on account of social and cultural factors.

a Comprehensive School Mapping Exercise was undertaken under SSA to arrive at clear picture of current availability of schools within defined area or limits of neighbourhood, where new schools need to be opened as envisaged in Tamilnadu RTE Rules,2011 in the unserved habitations only. This has been done in all the districts in coordination with all the Addl.CEOS, DEEOS, AEEOs, Supervisors, BRTES, Headmasters, Teachers and SMCs following the timeline given below.

In this regard, 2 specific formats have been designed to capture community-wise and Grender-wise habitation level details at primary and upper primary levels such as total population, School age children(6-14), School going children(6-14), Out-of-school children(6-14), Children with Special Needs(CWSN), names of neighbourhood schools at primary and upper primary levels, UDISE codes of the said schools, its distance from the habitation, number of children enrolled in Government Schools/Private Aided Schools/Private Unaided Schools from the habitation, number of children provided with special training/KGBV schools/Residential Schooling facilities, present status of schooling access and strategies required for children in un-served habitations to have access to school. The outcome obtained through this exercise helps us to Plan and devise suitable strategies for children in un-served habitations to have safe access to school in the context of Tamil Nadu Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Rules, 2011.

Habitations in the district 2017-18:

In Tamil Nadu, Web-centric GIS Mapping was developed in 2015-16. During this exercise, the names and codes of habitations maintained in GIS database were standardised. In this connection, a list of habitations notified by the Directorate of Rural Development and Panchayat Raj were obtained from the said department and linked into GIS database. Hence there is no change in the standardised habitations in 2017-18.

Accordingly, the number of notified rural habitations in the District is 2260 in 2017-18. The total number of urban habitations in the District is 465 which comprise 21 town panchayats with 336 wards, 2 Municipalities with 78 wards and 1Corporations with 51 wards. Thus, totally 2275 habitations are there in the District
