Kindly refer to the subject cited above and earlier letter No. SNCENSUS/PESRP/2020/20504 dated 5th October, 2020 on the same subject.
2.As stated previously, the Program Monitoring and Implementation Unit (PMIU-PESRP) has implemented School Information System (SIS) to track every student in Public sector schools, collecting data during the Annual School Census (ASC) 2020. This data is of integral importance in nation-building, forming the basis for the School Education Department’s essential future decision making and implementation of policies to support the advancement of students’ education. Starting this year, to improve data credibility, each student’s B-form number will be used as a unique identifier, which will be mandatory to include in SIS while feeding data of Census 2020. Consequently, it is our national responsibility to attain the goal of entering each student’s B-form number in S1S.
3.Recent statistics for B-form entry are low (i.e.) only 21%, indicating areas for major improvement. Latest district-wise status of School Census B-form numbers is attached as reported (Annex-A). The weekly status will be shared with all concerned authorities in the coming days to sensitize all.B-FORM-MANDATORY
