For the 1st phase of the Mission Schools of Excellence project, a total of 3,081 govt primary and secondary schools from 2,074 clusters across 04 municipal corporations and 33 districts have been shortlisted. The Mission Schools of Excellence project is being funded by the World Bank.

Out of the total 3081 govt schools, a total of 2575 primary and 506 secondary schools across the state have been selected.

The World Bank team arrived on a 04-day visit to the state. The team also held 1st round of meetings with the Education Ministers and the officials of the Education Department.

Through the project, the aim is to transform around 20,000 govt primary and secondary schools over the next five years out of which 3,000 will be transformed in the first phase, 7,000 in the second phase, and 10,000 in the third phase. The project will also provide global facilities to these schools.
