=== School support system ===
 
The DIETs, BRCs and CRCs need to be facilitated to provide ongoing support to the schools and teachers. The pandemic has repeatedly proven the principle that centralized approaches will not work, as local solutions have to be imagined by schools/ teachers. Hence the support from the school system has to be guidelines and encouraging the autonomous design of responses of the schools. Heavy-handed fiats will be counterproductive.

Schools will need additional funding to provide for exigencies arising from the pandemic. This will include the following
 +
# provision of basic hygiene facilities, including soap/detergent,
 +
# drinking water, functioning toilet and washing facilities are critical
 +
# developing and producing teaching-learning materials, including worksheets etc
 +
# travel by teachers to communities to support local learning in small groups
 +
# engaging volunteers for supporting (supplementing and complementing) local learning activities
 +
# medicine kit, including thermal scanners/thermometers, analgesics etc.

While schools can and should try to raise some funds from local charities, community organizations, parent groups etc. there is likely to be a need for additional budgetary support to the SDMCs from the state government/ education department. Such an ad-hoc school grant will need to consider the school strength as well as its location.
