CITY PRIDE SCHOOL
First Advisory Board Meeting 2017-18

 DAY: Friday DATE: 28.07.17

On behalf of the management, the School Correspondent Dr. Ashwini .Kulkarni welcomed the Advisory Board members.

The following points were discussed in the meeting.

1. Medium of Communication: The school correspondent Dr. Ashwini.Kulkarni informed the parents that PTA Executive and Advisory Body of City Pride school have formed Whats app groups which will enable them to share any issues faced by any member of the school and find out a solution to the same. Whatsapp is a social media which should be used constructively and responsibly by the parents and genuine problems and queries should be posted in the group. It is generally been observed that meager petty issues like home assignments, absenteeism, loss of things etc is posted. She also mentioned that whenever any concerned queries have been posted the school representatives have always answered the queries promptly. She said that these kinds of petty issues can be handled in the various class groups and she urged the members of the advisory board to maintain the serenity of the group for its smooth functioning .

2. Parking- The parents had queries regarding the traffic congestion in front of the school gate in the morning and during dispersal hours. The school correspondent Dr. Ashwini. Kulkarni informed the members that though a call was taken in the previous years that the parents could follow the one way rule to avoid the congestion it was generally observed that most of the parents were not following the one way policy. She said that parents could come on two wheelers or start with car pooling. She urged the advisory members to create awareness regarding parking of vehicles in the whatsapp group. One parent suggested that we could define the parking line on the road. Dr. Ashwini. Kulkarni added to it that such kind of awareness could be easily created through the various whatsapp groups. One parent suggested that 95% of the traffic is school related and only 5% is of outsiders, so the initiative has to be taken by the school and that all the school buses, the rickshaws and vans should follow the rule of one way and added that the bus bringing the physiotherapy students always comes from the wrong side. Dr. Ashwini. Kulkarni replied that with immediate effect it will be seen that all the school buses are following the one way rule. One parent suggested that the open ground near Camp Education institute can be used for parking on which madam mentioned that we are using this area since last two years for parking . One parent suggested that a graphic presentation on traffic and parking area can be shown to the children and through children it would be easy to create awareness. Dr. Ashwini. Kulkarni appreciated the suggestion and suggested to take up the problem statement in creya and added that a flex could be made directing the parking rules. One parent suggested about the speed limit and the speed breakers.
Action Taken: The area outside the school gates was inspected after the meeting and it was observed that there are two speed breakers as per the RTO norms. Secondly all our school buses follow the One way traffic rule. The bus driver who drives the students to Physiotherapy college was informed to follow the one way norm. After the rainy season the area infront of all the three school gates will be marked wherein no vehicles will be allowed to be parked . No parent will be allowed to wait in that marked area. Presentations on awareness about traffic rules and traffic control will be given to the students so that they can convey the same to their parents to resolve the issue. We have also invited innovative ideas on this issue from our students .

 3.Time Slots during interaction and open days: Parents do not follow the schedule according to the time slots on Interaction and Open Days which leads to delay for other parents. Dr.Ashwini. Kulkarni suggested to collect names and make the list of such parents. She also suggested that parents with more than two children can give an application to the class teachers and get the same time slot for interaction with the teachers. One parent said that as the parents find it very difficult to locate the subject teachers. Dr. Ashwini. Kulkarni suggested to write the name of the subject teachers and their location on the black board for the convenience of the parents.
