The word "SAHODAYA" derives from two Sanskrit words "SAHA" & "UDAYA" which means "RISE TOGETHER"
Sahodaya School Complexes : The Concept
In 1987, CBSE brought out a publication titled, “Freedom to learn and freedom to grow through Sahodaya School Complexes” (SSCs) which characterized “SSCs” as a voluntary association of schools in a given area, who through mutual choices, have agreed to come together for a systematic and system-wide renewal of the total educational process. In other words as “Sahodaya” signifies rising together, it identified six areas, to begin with, for collaboration amongst schools of its complex:
1. Educative Management
3 Human Resource Mobilization
4. Professional Growth of Teachers
5. Value-Oriented School Climate
6. Vocationalisation of Education.
Through positive promotional efforts, the Board has helped schools come together and form an interactive and sharing relationship. At present, there are 260 such complexes which are active throughout the country, and share and care for each other; particularly those which are in close physical proximity.
