Through the idea of Sahodaya Schools complexes was first mooted by the Education Commission,1966. It was the National policy on Education, 1966 which reiterated in strong words the need for promoting school complexes for meeting the quality of education. This set the tone for bringing the schools together and networking them for healthy interaction among themselves .The first national conference of Principals of CBSE affiliated schools organized by CBSE in collabartion with APSC Madras in 1985 emphasized collaboration among schools and establishing linkages in academic and other co-curricular and cultural activities. The idea of Schodaya School Complexes was further concretised when CBSE, jointly with NPSC, organized a two day conference of school principals and teachers in Delhi in October 1986. The resolution number 5 stated “Accepting the necessity for establishing school complex (es) which may be named SS complexes so that isolation that exists today between the school will give way to partnership among schools within the complexes and they will work and rise together”. The year 1987 saw a further boost to the idea of setting up of SS complex (es) when CBSE in pursuance of the National Policy of Education, 1986 used a booklet titled “Implementation of National policy on Education in CBSE affiliated Schools-Programme of Action for three years” which reiterated school complexes and resolved to encourage the process of setting of Sahodaya School Complexes.
