Shri. K S Prakash Rao (22-Aug-1940 - 22-Jan-2018)

I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again - Stephen Grellet

Shri K S Prakash founded Shri R. K. Sanjiv Educational and Cultural Academy (Regd.) in 1998 in memory of his late father Shri. R. K Sanjiv Rao, an eminent freedom fighter, educationist and social worker in the area. Shri K S Prakash established Sandeepan School as he strongly believed the children in rural areas should have the similar educational opportunities as their urban counterparts and that English language should not be a barrier in the academic and professional careers.


The school is managed by Shri R. K. Sanjiv Educational and Cultural Academy (Regd.). The Academy was founded by Late. Shri. K. S. Prakash Rao. It has a Board of Management with Shri Sanjeet Prakash Rao as President and Shri K S Janardhan as Secretary, who attend to the needs of the school.

The financial position of the school and the Academy is not strong and needs to be supported through donations and advances from the family of promoters. However, with the provision of proper accommodation and facilities, the student strength will go up and the financial position will improve to meet expenditure of administration. However no surplus can be expected to meet infrastructure investment cost and loan repayment obligations.
