In view of fulfillment of SSA goals, Universal Access demands a major role which should be fulfilled at the outset of the academic year. With the passage of RTE the focus of Universal Access has been shifted and the parameters and norms have also been changed. The significance of social access in universalizing elementary education cannot be under estimated rather more importance should be given on it. Social access therefore demands not merely physical access to set up a neighborhood school within a notified distance but also social access by way of addressing all practices within the school premises. Mapping of access is a very tough task which has already been completed with the help of GIS map. School and social mapping is therefore a powerful means of mobilizing the community to ensure that all children having age group 6-14 years should attend school and complete their elementary education. District has conducted habitation survey in the financial year 2007-08 to take a view of gross educational scenario of a habitation which helped us very much to identify the need of the habitation but after that GIS map serves the details with regard to need of Primary and Upper Primary schools as RTE says “There should be a Primary or SSK within one kilometer radius of habitation for rural area and half kilometer for urban areas and for upper primary it would be for within two kilometer radius of habitation for rural area and one kilometer for urban areas”. In the past it is seen that, for fulfillment of universal access the education granted schemes was encouraged by opening alternative schooling in the area where there is lack of primary and upper primary school but after enforcement of RTE acts it mandates that there would be no informal schools within the habitation if it is lagging behind district should take appropriate steps for opening of requisite number of primary and upper primary schools.

In the context we have achieved a tremendous success in respect of New Set up Upper Primary, all the proposal has duly been submitted to the School Education Department. We are eager to set up 13 nos. of Primary Schools at unserved habitation and 06 nos. of additional Upper Primary Schools proposal are prepared for according approval with regard to provide facilities to the children.

It is to be noted also this time though a lot of children are facing problem to some extent with regard to access but there is no need for providing transport and escort facilities to the children to attend the school except CWSN children for which transport and escort facilities are to be provided and which has already been reflected in this year IED budget.
