The CBSE in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MoHRD), Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) and GIZ (formerly known as GTZ) has introduced the ‘National School Sanitation Initiative’ with the aim is to inculcate good sanitation habits among the school children in order to inspire, acquaint and celebrate excellence towards School Sanitation at the National Level.The CBSE’s Comprehensive School Health Manuals also address the issue of Sanitation in Schools.

Sanitation is one of the six areas and themes that have been identified for a school to improve its performance in its objective of becoming a Health Promoting School. These six themes are:

  1. Food and Nutrition,
  2. Knowing Your Body,
  3. Personal, Environmental Hygiene and Sanitation.
  4. Behaviour and Life Skills,
  5. Physical Fitness and
  6. Being Responsible and Safe.

Accordingly, Online School Sanitation Ratings have been instituted with the purpose of recognizing those schools who are taking significant steps towards effective sanitation and improvement in service delivery leading to the desired behavioural and attitudinal changes towards hygiene & sanitation. The Sanitation Ratings are expected to infuse the required dynamism in the schools towards sanitation management.

As furtherance to the National School Sanitation Ratings it has been decided by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India to institute National School Sanitation Awards on annual basis for those schools who have been rated online for sanitation and taken noteworthy steps towards betterment of the sanitation scenario in their schools in varied ways.
