DOMAIN 1 

Enabling Resources of School: Availability, Adequacy and Usability

The enabling resources are critical to the effective functioning of the school. Every school requires a variety of resources for its operations– infrastructure, human resources, financial, material, etc. In a school, enabling resources are those resources which facilitate learning in comfortable, safe and stress- free surroundings. The main characteristics of school resources are accessibility and efficiency

DOMAIN 2 

Teaching-learning and Assessment

Teaching-learning is a key performance domain and the most important determinant of learner attainment. Effective teaching-learning results from strategic planning and the creation of an optimal learning environment. This entails designing suitable learning experiences and using a variety of teaching-learning strategies that would enhance learning.

DOMAIN 3 

Learners’ Progess Attainment and Development

Holistic development of the learner is the primary objective of good schooling. This encompasses development of learners in the cognitive, affective as well as psychomotor domains. The school aims to achieve this by encouraging learners to participate in all curricular areas, continuously monitoring their progress over a period of time. 

DOMAIN 4 

Managing Teacher Performance and Professional Development

Teacher performance management is the mainstay of quality education. It is a continuous process of identifying teacher potential, and developing their skills, through a systematic approach to performance review and capacity building programmes. It necessitates appropriate induction of newly recruited teachers, orienting them to the school, as well as the learners’ profile and context.

DOMAIN 5

School Leadership and Management

Effective school leadership and management play a significant role in providing quality education. School leadership goes beyond administrative and managerial responsibilities to include proactive practices for school transformation. It includes developing a vision for a school and aligning all planning to it so as to improve the performance of the learners.

DOMAIN 6

Inclusion, Health and Safety

The idea that ‘all children can learn’ forms the underlying basis for ‘universalization’ of education. The RTE Act further lends credibility to this notion that all children can learn irrespective of their gender, caste, socioeconomic background, etc. This necessitates inclusion of children with diverse backgrounds into the ambit of schooling. Inclusion not only means ‘including all’, but also providing equal opportunity to every child, thereby following the principles of equity

DOMAIN 7

Productive Community Participation

The term ‘community’ refers to members of the school management committee, teachers, learners, parents/ guardians, local residents, associated cultural organizations and NGOs. Working together with community members is critical to school development. The school needs the support of the community for achieving its objectives and providing quality education to its learners.
