Go Digital: School to get Internet for digitized Mark Sheets
The world is reeling towards getting digital. It has embraced new ways of enhancements in the field of science and technology. With the help of modern technology, we are able to achieve the best of what we need. Today technology enabled education is gaining momentum and is keeping pace with this new ways of developments.
Talking about developments, recently, the Nashik Zilla Parishad has named about 516 schools to which the internet connection service would be provided for free. The state Government has taken this decision to provide digitized mark sheets to the SSC (Secondary School Certificates) students. Wow!! That’s a great idea 🙂

The Primary Education officer R S Mogal had recently called a meeting with all the taluka level officers, block education officers, extension officers and other officials to discuss various issues and to take the reviews of pending subjects.
He then stated that the education board decided to make digitally signed mark sheets with the attached photo copy of the student which would be made available online as a part of its plan to go paperless within the coming two years.
It is a very good thought of connecting the schools with internet connection and getting the digitized mark sheets. The main aim is to help colleges to access the correct mark sheets of the board exam online during the admission process. In this way there will be less chance of presenting the forged copy of mark sheets. The employers will also be able to verify genuineness of the mark sheets on the portal during the interview time.
When and How
The education department is likely to start a three phase project. In the first phase, the online mark sheets in the PDF format will be provided to the students starting from the 2014-2015 exams.
The state government has also planned to provide free internet connectivity in 516 schools all around the Nashik city including talukas like Yeola, Dindori, Kalwan, Nandgaon and Niphad, under the National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) which is a government scheme running all across the country.
In this process, the mapping of school has to be done initially. The mapping is done with the help of software and once the software is activated from the location of school, the latitude and longitude of the school gets registered.
Adding to it, the Education Department also took a review of the schools for which mapping is still yet to be done.
It is one of the svelte initiatives from the Education board as well as form the State Government to digitize the mark sheets because of which the college admissions are going to be easier than ever. A hearty good Luck from Page 3 team for this skillful project.
