National Sahodaya Conference

CBSE Annual National Sahodaya Conference

The Central Board of Secondary School launched a networking concept among its schools called “SAHODAYA” in the year 1986. The concept of Sahodaya is imbued with the spirit of ‘caring & sharing’ and is meant to facilitate closer networking and collaboration among the schools of the CBSE family aimed at excellence in education. The Sahodaya School Complex is a group of neighborhood schools who voluntarily come together to share best practices and innovative strategies in various aspects of school education including curriculum design, evaluation and pedagogy and also in providing support to teachers by regular capacity building exercises. Some Sahodaya clusters also engage with parents and leaders in the community to build partnerships and network for a larger cause.

At present there are around 250 active Sahodaya School Clusters across the country with the networking of 4500 schools. In order to bring Sahodaya members on a common platform the Board conducts a National Annual Conference of Sahodaya School Complexes every year on an identified theme of current educational relevance. Besides facilitating broad interactions among practitioners, it also serves as an effective channel of interaction between schools and the CBSE and thereby helps the Board in formulating its policies in a progressive and pragmatic manner. The deliberations on the issues arising out of the conference theme trigger meaningful thought processes which are then encapsulated in the form of Recommendations and disseminated to the other members of the Sahodaya.
