School Education Shagun is an over reaching initiative to improve the school education system. The initiative involves creating a junction in the form of a platform for all portals and websites of the Department of School Education in the Government of India and all States and Union Territories (UTs).
The word ‘Shagun’ is coined from two different words – ‘Shala’, meaning Schools and ‘Gunvatta’ meaning Quality.
The Department had launched the ‘ShaGun’ Repository and online monitoring websites with the aim to capture and showcase innovations in the elementary sector of school education and continuously monitoring of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA).
With the introduction of Samagra Shiksha from 2018-19, there is no differentiation between elementary, secondary and senior secondary levels. However, since the name ‘Shagun’ has caught the imagination of many people in India and abroad, it has been decided to adopt this name for this present all encompassing platform.
Keeping in tune with the spirit of convergence in policy intervention through introduction of the Samagra Shiksha, the SE Shagun platform provides single point access to all portals and websites of the Department. Relevant information pertaining to more than 1.5 million schools, 9 million teachers and 250 million students can be accessed through this platform. Browsing through this platform, one can also learn about the schemes and their comprehensive monitoring, go through how the outcomes are measured with the help of an objective evaluation process and appreciate the best practices in the schools all over the country.
