The Director School Education Jammu (DSEJ) has ordered the constitution of district level school monitoring and mentoring committees which will supervise and monitor the functioning of the State-run schools.
The committees will also provide adequate support and mentoring to the teachers and work for improvement in general academic standards along with increase in enrolment and other related issues.
DSEJ, Anuradha Gupta, told Greater Kashmir that the committee shall take feedback from different sources to make an assessment of the problems afflicting the functioning of the schools.
“The committee shall identify the schools where the board results have consistently shown poor results. They shall also identify the schools in respect of which there are complaints of absenteeism among the teachers,” said an order, issued by DSEJ.
They will supervise the process of assessment of academic standards of students of class 1st to 12th for learning outcomes as well their performance in unit tests. “They shall ensure parent teacher meetings and will take feedback from the parents on the prescribed format,” the order read further.
