 Sir,


      I invite your kind attention to the reference 1st cited , the Hon’ble Chief
 Minister’s vision for School Education and his direction that Andhra Pradesh should be one of the top three performing States in the Country by 2022. In order to achieve this vision, specific strategies are designed and initiatives being taken up by the School Education Department  to equip its students  with grade appropriate literacy and numeracy competencies, as well as with knowledge and skills relevant for the 21st Century. 

     Recent Assessments/surveys such as National Achievement Survey [NAS] 2017, Annual Survey of Education Report [ASER], 2017 and Student Learning Achievement Survey [SLAS], 2017-18 indicate the grade specific learning levels of School students in Andhra Pradesh and the academic gaps that need to be addressed. . Additionally, the recent Summative Assessment -1 result highlighted the immediate need for sustainable interventions to improve learning skills of children.

     In  this  regard,  as  per  reference  2nd  cited  the  Government  of  Andhra  Pradesh,  a  forward-looking, reform  oriented  Assessment  Cell  has  been  instituted  in  SCERT  to  strengthen  the  Evaluation  Department. Additionally,  DCEBs  (District  Common  Examination  Boards)  in  districts  have  also  been  strengthened  so  as to  play  active  role  in  Academic  monitoring,  dissemination  of  assessment  results  and  Implementation  of quality  improvement  interventions.  Several  initiatives  have  been  taken  up  by  the  Assessment  Cell  of  SCERT which  brought  greater  focus  on  understanding  and  improving  the  grade  specific  learning  outcomes  of  school students in the State.

      In  this  context,  Department  of  School  Education  has  designed  a  comprehensive  Learning Enhancement  Program  called  the  -  Vidya  Vikaasam-  with  an  objective  to  implement  systemic  and  systematic programs  that  will  drive  overall  improvement  in  learning  outcomes.    Specifically  Vidya  Vikaasam  will  use Assessments  and  student  performance  data  as  a  lever  to  identify  gaps  and  holistically  improve  the  pedagogy in  classrooms,  identify  and  delivery  focused  training  to  teachers,  design  and  implement  targeted  remediation to  students  and  create  awareness  in  communities.  In  preparation  for  the  Academic  Year,  2018-19  and  to utilise  the summer vacation to implement certain related initiatives,  Vidya  Vikaasam  is being  launched now.

      It  is  the  endeavour  of  the  Department  of  School  Education  to  reach  out  to  all  students  and  teachers  in the  state  through  successful  implementation  of  Vidya  Vikaasam.  To  generate  momentum  and  shift  the  needle of  focus  to  learning  of  children  across  the  state,  the  Hon’ble  Minister  for  HRD,  Govt  of  AP  will  launch  Vidya Vikaasam  on  April 12th  from 04.00 p.m  to 06.00 p.m

     This  launch  will  be  preceded  by  a  review  of  performance  of  districts  in  NAS  2017,  SA1  and  SLAS 2017-18  followed  by  Action  plan  discussion.  Various  partners  working  across  the  state  towards  quality education are  also being  invited to share  their  work and create  greater synergy  towards the  common goal.

      I  wish  to  personally  extend  an  invitation  for  your  gracious  presence  and  active  participation  at  the Vidya  Vikaasam  Launch  Program  being  organised  by  SCERT  on  12th  April,  2018  at  Hotel  Gateway, M.G.Road,  Vijayawada  from  4  pm  to  6  pm .  The  details  regarding  the  program    and  Agenda  are  enclosed herewith.

Thanking  You Sir, 


Yours  Sincerely
 for  Commissioner  of  School Education 
Andhra  Pradesh, Amaravati
