ORDER:

1. During  the  year  2008  in  the  combined  State  of  Andhra  Pradesh,  after widespread  consultations  with  various  stake-holders,  6,500  Government  /  Zilla Parishad / Municipal High Schools were identified for introduction of English Medium under  the  SUCCESS  (Strengthening  and  Universalization  quality  and  access  to Secondary Schools) Programme. Out of these 6500 success schools, at present 3428 schools are functioning in the State of AP.

2.In the G.O. 1st read above, Government had issued instructions for introduction of English Medium Sections in a parallel section in 6500 identified Govt Sector (ZP / Govt / Municipal High Schools in the State) and also to prepare schedule for training of teachers to improve English Language skills and strengthening the District Centers for English in all Districts.


3. From  the  analysis  of  the  2014-15  DISE  data  and  from  the  preliminary rationalization exercise undertaken during July, 2014, the following are found:

3,428 are the designated SUCCESS Schools with parallel English Medium.
•    Total enrollment in   both Telugu and English Medium   in the SUCCESS Schools is 13,39,180

4,20,066 (31.36 %)

Medium sections.

Medium Sections.
