Improvers School Bonus Programme, Awareness Campaign 2012-2013 in Attock, Mandi Bahuddin and Rahim Yar Khan District


The pilot Improvers School Performance Programme was initiated by PMIU-PESRP SED, GoPb in the financial year 2010-2011 as a three-year programme to award incentives to low-performing schools in poorly-performing districts, with the main objective to increase enrolments in schools (enrolments + retention) and improving student learning outcomes. Initially, three districts namely Attock, Mandi Bahauddin and Rahim Yar Khan were selected as pilot districts and within these districts, 600 schools (160 schools in Attock, 127 in Mandi Bahauddin and 313 in Rahim Yar Khan) were chosen on the basis of their lowest performance in Grade 5 PEC examination.

Every year PMIU ensured orientation/awareness of the target groups (district administration officials of selected districts, head teachers and teachers of the selected government schools) under the Improvers’ School Performance Programme. The purpose of the orientation was to increase the awareness of the Programme, to know about the success stories, to share experiences, to understand the factors that impact the Programme interventions favourably or adversely and to discuss ways and means to improve the school performance further on the stated indicators.
