Simple Steps for Opening a CBSE School in India

In India, opening a school is a time consuming process but the unending demand of the schools has increased the interests of more and more people as they are stepping forward to start a venture.

CBSE is a self-financing body that takes into consideration the needs and requirements of the affiliated schools. CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) affiliation is the most popular school examination board. The function of this education board is to conduct school examinations and develop school curriculum for its affiliated schools in India. CBSE affiliations (provisional and permanent) to schools include various rules that need to be followed by them. Besides this, it plays the role of quality controller as well by providing quality education to the affiliated schools. It is the most trusted and popular affiliation board of India.

One can start with a primary school and later take CBSE affiliation for class 8th onwards. But, establishing a CBSE school from the very beginning guarantees quality education and full support of the CBSE Board.

School setting is not just about constructing physical infrastructure, building classrooms and setting up libraries and labs. It also involves procurement of the licenses and permissions from the concerned authorities at different stages of development of the school.

Various steps are involved in opening a school and getting affiliation like procurement of No Objection Certificate or recommendation by state education department. Therefore, if an individual wants to get CBSE Affiliation, then they have to seek permission from the state department. The state department clarifies the documents and undertakes necessary procedures and either accepts or refuses the application. If, the state department refuses the application, then no affiliation will be granted by CBSE Board. Hence, for conversion of a normal school to CBSE School, the state education department must be fully convinced to get the green signal for conversion.

Depending upon the needs and requirement, an individual can opt for any of the following types of affiliation:

  • Provisional Affiliation
  • Regular Affiliation
  • Permanent Affiliation

Therefore, it has become significant for the schools to get the affiliation from CBSE Board to get listed in the top schools of the country. SHEMFORD is a CBSE School with an established brand name.
