SCHOOL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

ABSTRACT

An effective administration of a school is the most essential prerequisite for its success. A school is treated to be successful if it fulfills the needs of all its stakeholders namely – the students, staff, parents, society, government, and its service providers. For the proper functioning of the schools, the Government of our country has made it mandatory to run the schools through the support of the School Management Committee (SMC) placed below the Trust or the Society as the governing agency. Besides, the school management should also make use of certain standard and time-tested management principles and abide by the prevailing national and international norms in a subtle way synergizing with the scope of the School Management Committee for the success of the programmes within the school
