Gurugram DC gives back reins of school to Ryan management

Gurugram: Three months of being at the helm of its affairs, the Deputy Commissioner (DC) of Gurugram handed over reins of Ryan International School in Bhondsi back to the school's management.
The official handing over took place on Friday, along with the rider that the school management must rectify its shortcoming within 15 days.
There will also be periodic surveillance of the steps taken by the school, so that parents who send their children to the school are satisfied with the new management.
The Ryan Group had come under fire after various flaws were found at the school.
The DC observed that if the management had taken concrete steps to rectify the situation, the investigation of Pradyuman Thakur's murder would not have been muddled.
A common toilet for staff and students, poor maintenance of verification records, absence of CCTV cameras at many spots and lack of boundary wall after a distance of 200 metres were among the security lapses found by the DC at the school.
Senior public officials also pointed that the school functioned with expired fire extinguishing systems and had not built ramps for its students.
Since Pradyuman's murder, most private schools in Gurugram are now making it mandatory for teachers to fill code of conduct forms.
A major declaration in this form is that the school staff will not indulge in any form of sexual activity with school children. Sources said these forms will be updated every year, so that the accountability of teaching staff can be fixed.
There are several other measures which would soon be implemented to enhance security of the students.
