School Board Concessions

Laws and international conventions on the right to education of children with disabilities have spoken of the need for accessible classrooms and teaching methods, as well as reasonable accommodation for learners and examinations. School boards have made some attempts at accommodating impairments in order to maximize student potential. This Section looks at the Indian school boards of the ICSE, the CBSE and the NIOS and the classroom and examination accommodations and relaxations that they offer, the manner in which to avail of them, and eligibility criteria. The grievance redressal mechanisms as well as the contact details of authorities are also provided.
