New Delhi: Human Resource Development Minister (HRD) Kapil Sibal on Thursday launched a website to give National School Sanitation Ratings, which will recognize the schools taking significant steps towards effective sanitation, a statement said.

Giving out ideas to improve sanitation in schools, Sibal suggested to mark one day every week as the day for teachers and staff to use student's toilets.

"The minister suggested that staff toilets in schools should be closed for at least one day in a week and all the teachers should use the toilets meant for students so that they are appreciative of the state of toilets used by students," an HRD ministry official said.

The ratings would also give national recognition to those schools which are taking significant steps towards effective sanitation and improvement in service delivery.

In furtherance of the National School Sanitation Initiative, all the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools will be rated according to their sanitation status in five colour categories. IANS
