APSWREIS September, 2015

Andhra Pradesh state government started the Andhra Pradesh Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (APSWREIS) in 1984 to provide quality education to poor SC, ST, and OBC students by establishing 177 residential schools for students of Class V to Class XII with 86,880 students. There are about 4,000 teachers in the society making teacher-student ratio to 1:32. Students have been admitted to the institutions through a lottery method since 2008 (after RTE Act) in the fifth class and being the medium of instruction is English. APSWREIS has been the pioneer in leveraging technology both, in administration and education and made rapid strides in achieving efficiency through technology. Today all 177 institutions are a part of an intranet with assured connectivity, own an e-mail service and a website. The academic progress of the students and teachers is monitored online through Student Academic Monitoring System (SAMS). Today APSWREIS is reaching out to almost 200 of its institutions through state run SAPNET, ‘MANA TV’ to arrange lectures for EAMCET, LAWCET, I-CET by the experts.
