Buxar: Private High or Higher Secondary Schools wishing to renew their registration or seeking fresh registration have to abide by the new rules and regulations of the education department from academic session 2017-2018.

As per the new guidelines of the education department, these educational institutions have to organize health check-up at least once in a year, maintain health cards of every student, appoint a music teacher, a physical trained teacher, a laboratory assistant and an office assistant. Besides, every school should have part time counsellor having degree in psychology or diploma in guidance counselling for the counselling of students.
