Programmes & Schemes

DIETs are expected to become models for other educational institutions in the districts in terms of meticulous, efficient and effective planning and execution of functions, harmonious and creative organizational climate, maintenance of a clean and attractive campus, etc. DIETs are the nodal institutions for improving quality of elementary education in the district. Every DIET has to perform three types of functions as envisaged in the Programme of Action (NPE 1986). They are:- i) training and orientation, ii) academic and resource support and iii) Action research & experimentation.
