NBSE notifies revised rules for students with disabilities

Nagaland News

Dimapur, March 21: Nagaland Board of School Education (NBSE) has informed all the heads of registered institutions about the revised rules relating to students with disabilities.
It stated that the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 envisages ‘equitable and inclusive education-learning for all’ and reaffirms that bridging social category gaps in access, participation, and learning outcomes in school education must be a major goal of all education sector development programmes.
NEP 2020 also reaffirms the provisions contained in the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 in regard to students with disabilities.
Accordingly, NBSE has reviewed and made suitable modifications in the curriculum and examination system to meet the needs of students with disabilities.
The Board has taken feedback from various stakeholders of the State and the revised rules have the approval of the Government.
The revised rules have been uploaded to the Board’s portal:
All heads of registered institutions have been requested to familiarise themselves with the revised rules and disseminate the information to the students with disabilities for seeking exemptions.
The revised rules will supersede earlier rules and notification, and will become applicable from the academic session 2022 i.e. Classes 8 and 9 Examinations 2022 and HSLC & HSSLC Examinations 2023 onwards.
