Complete details of teachers’ attendance in schools and the classes taken by them will be recorded daily. Information about which teachers came to school on which day and who took which class at which bell will be recorded daily in the register. For this, there will be a format in every school, which will be filled daily. This will be applicable in secondary and higher secondary schools. The Education Department has issued instructions to all the districts regarding this. There are about nine thousand 300 secondary-higher secondary schools running in the state. A letter in this regard has been written by the Director of Secondary Education of the department to all the District Education Officers and District Program Officers (Establishment). A format model is also given along with the letter.
Districts are instructed to print such a format and fill each column daily. In this, along with the names of the teachers, all the bells also have their own place. Along with this, information about additional classes being run under Mission Daksh is also to be given in this format. Also, the school headmaster and teachers will sign this register every day.
It is known that many initiatives have been taken to improve teaching and learning in schools and ensure quality education. In this context, the department has made this new scheme, in which daily class-wise details of teachers will be recorded. In this regard, the departmental officer says that the officers going for school inspection will also see this register. This will make it clear which teacher taught in how many classes on which day. Its record will remain in the school. The department had earlier said that mere physical presence of teachers in schools will not ensure quality education. Therefore it is necessary that teachers take children’s classes regularly. Along with this, monthly examinations are also being conducted now. This year, for the first time, regular inspection of schools was decided in the ongoing campaign to improve education. Let us tell you that from July 2023, on an average, officers and employees visit 35 to 40 thousand schools every day and see the attendance of teachers and children. Along with this, they get information about mid-day meal, cleanliness of school premises, drinking water-toilet facilities etc.
