The committee will comprise four members, including counsellors, educators, teachers and principal, who will be the chairperson.
The committee will have to act as facilitator for promoting inclusive education at school level and in neighborhood and will also be a referral agency in case of children from disadvantaged groups and weaker sections of society.
The committee will also take steps to raise public awareness on the importance of equality, overcoming discrimination and prohibit any kind of harassment and victimization of any child with special needs in school.
"In pursuance to Right to Education Act, 2009, under section 3 clause (c) of section 8 and 9 and Person with Disability Act (1995), the CBSE is providing various exemptions for children with special needs to ensure their active and successful participation in school system. It is often observed these provisions are not reaching the targeted population and often being misinterpreted by students and stakeholders in inclusion education. It is advised to all its schools to constitute a School Inclusion Committee," the circular stated.
