About the Organization

District School Board, 24 Parganas was established in the year 1942. That was indeed a very happy augury for development of Primary Education in our district. The prime focus of the District School Board was on spreading of Primary Education all over the district. District School Board was reconstituted as District Primary School Council (DPSC) under 37 of the West Bengal Primary Education Act 1973 in the year 1990. Later in 1994, it turned into North 24 Parganas District Primary School Council, a democratically elected autonomous body, under the provisions of West Bengal Primary Education Act, 1973 as amended from time to time. Its aim is to run and govern the educational administration of the district including the qualitative academic upliftment of the primary schools. We, the members of the DPSC family, had systematically attempted to develop the infrastructural and academic upliftment in our 3562 nos. of primary schools within 57 circles prior to the inception of Samagra Shiksha Mission. We are still doing the same thing in collaboration with office of the District Education Officer, Samagra Shiksha Mission, District Inspector of Schools (P.E.), District Administration and Zilla Parishad.

Recently increasing trend of more and more private participation in primary education sector has posed a challenge to us which we need to face by developing our primary schools in the same standard, both qualitative and quantitative. we know, we have miles to go and much more to do to achieve the dream of “Elementary Education” for all upto the age of 14.
