With the launching of the SSA basically with a view to achieving universalization of elementary education by the target year 2010 the WBBPE is also prepared to rise up to the occasion in the fulfillment of the objective of SSA. It has been decided unanimously that all academic activities will be initiated by the board in collaboration with PBRPSUS, SCERT, WBBSE, UNICEF etc. The ongoing programmes of Teacher Empowerment (in respect of Science Teaching and English Teaching) and the Primary School Health Programme already undertaken by the Board will go a long way to reach the target sets by the SSA. A Plan of Action containing definite Project Proposals was submitted to State Project Office of SSA during March, 2006.
