Planned and implemented by Kerala Infrastructure and Technology for Education (KITE), the project is a part of the public education rejuvenation mission. According to TOI, the construction of these new buildings happened under the ‘Center of Excellence’ project. In fact, each school under the 141 assembly constituencies is provided financial assistance of Rs 5 crore for a physical infrastructure upgrade.

And, that’s not all. Some of the hi-tech classrooms are equipped with laptops, projectors, and surround systems. They even have high-speed broadband connections. Also, special provisions for rainwater harvesting and systematic waste management have been included as part of the schools. They also have dining and cooking in the new buildings. The buildings have disabled-friendly toilets on each floor too.
