About the Organization


District School Board, Hooghly was established in the year 1945. The prime focus of the District School Board was on spreading of Primary Education all over the district. District School Board was reconstituted as District Primary School Council (DPSC) under West Bengal Primary Education Act 1973 in the year 1990. We, the members of the DPSC family, had systematically attempted to develop the infrastructural and academic upliftment in our 2968 nos. of primary schools within 47 circles prior to the inception of Sarva Shiksha Mission.

The District Primary School Council, Hooghly closely works with the office of the District Inspector of Schools (PE), Hooghly and office of the District Project Officer, Sarva Shiksha Mission, Hooghly.

And, we know, we have miles to go and much more to do to achieve the dream of “Elementary Education” for all upto the age of 14.
