There are 52,000 students in 79 primary and 53 secondary schools run by the civic body.
To begin with, the corporation will install CCTV cameras in 55 schools, said Mahendra Konde, public relations officer of the municipal body.
The surveillance cameras will be installed under the corporation’s “Shikshan Vision” programme aimed at improving the quality of education and all-round development of students, said Konde.
Civic schools in Navi Mumbai add over 1,000 students every year, he said.
