Training programmes to In-service teachers
(A)Primary teachers: 6-day programme on English language teaching learning process @ 3 days on classroom transaction for classes I and II3-days for classes III to V.
(B)Upper Primary and High Schools: 4-day training programme in all the subjects on following areas.
Content enrichment and clarification of doubts.
Classroom teaching learning process.
Assessment (CCE)- Focus on Formative and Summative Assessment and preparing question papers duly following the blueprint.
Co-curricular activities
(C)Training to teachers working in English medium schools (Success Schools): Separate training shall be organized for the teachers teaching English medium sections in High Schools. This will be on English language communication and subject.
(D)Training will be on demand and based on needs of the teachers:The trainings are being organized in a non serious way. Certain teachers are not interested to attend the training programme and says that they don’t need training programmes. Therefore, willingness of the teachers to undergo training may be collected through MEOs and Dy.EOs. All the teachers will be informed about the contents of the training programme, venue, particulars of the RPs, training amounts etc. and requested for their willingness. Those who wants training alone can be invited for the training.
III.Other issues
1.Single teacher primary schools and clubbing of schools within the same compound and habitations
A decision may be taken to club the schools functioning in the same campus or in the same habitation within 1 KM radius duly following the enrolment norms. this facilitates for providing more number of teachers i.e. at least three (3) teachers in Primary School i.e. 1 teacher completely responsible for teaching Telugu/ Urdu and the second teacher teaches English for classes I to V and third teacher teaches Mathematics from classes I to V. This facilitates capacity building of subject teachers in their subject and held responsible for the outcomes rather than teaching different subjects to different classes.
2. Merging of UP Schools with nearby High Schools
The structure of schools: At present the schools are operating in three ways i.e. Primary Schools, Upper Primary Schools and High Schools.
In the case of UP Schools sufficient staff structure is not available i.e. there no teacher in each subject for teaching. One School Assistant for Maths and Science and another for Social and English. In this case, the Science teacher cannot teach Maths and similarly the Social teacher cannot teach English. Further, the minimum working periods are not being taught by the teachers. The UP sections are not viable and justice is not being done to children. In case of High Schools, there is a teacher for every subject. Therefore, quality can be ensured in High Schools but not in Upper Primary Schools.
Therefore, it is proposed to have two types of schools i.e. Primary and High Schools and do away with Upper Primary Schools. There is a 3 KMs distance norm for UP Schools. However, High Schools are available in most of the habitations within 3 KMs. In case wherever there is no High School within the radius of 5 KMs, the existing Upper Primary Schools may be upgraded to High Schools. All the UP Schools may be merged nearby High Schools.
3. Low strength High Schools
Certain High Schools are working with strength of 40 or 50 children and below 75 and such schools are being functional within the area of 1 or 2 KMs. The actual norm for High School is 5 KMs i.e. a High School within the radius of 5 KMs. This need to be discussed and a decision may be taken.
4. Half day schools during summer
It is discussed on this item and practices in neighbouring States. In Tamil Nadu and Karnataka full time schools are in practice. In case of Maharashtra, half day schools during April i.e. 08.00 AM to 02.00 PM i.e. full hours of schooling. Therefore, it is suggested to go for full day schools during summer. The present timings of half day schools i.e. 08.00 AM to 12.30 PM and about 30 minutes per period is not sufficient to teach the subject. The school timings being 08.00 AM in the morning, most of the teachers and children do absent to the school assembly and come late to the schools. This is general phenomenon being observed in almost all schools. The children will be going to their houses after having their Mid Day Meal i.e. at 01.30 PM i.e. hot mid day summer.
