Ranchi: Chief Secretary of Jharkhand Raj Bala Verma today asked state education officials to take measures to ensure better results of students across the state in the Matriculation Board exams.
Addressing District Superintendents of Education (DSEs) and District Education Officers (DEOs) through video conferencing, Verma stressed the need for taking initiatives at village and panchayat level to improve the situation in government schools by deputing additional teachers and organizing extra classes.
She said the additional maths and science teachers of Plus Two schools should be deputed in high schools where there was crisis of teachers. Such schools should be identified to make the necessary deputation. This would improve the Matriculation results in the state, she said.
Verma said a cell should be formed at department level to conduct daily monitoring in order to ensure that Matriculation Board students do not face any problem. She said the rural schools should ensure that no child drops out of school. For this, school management committees should be made responsible, she said.
The CS further said that a five-point programme focussing on zero dropout, cent per cent teacher attendance, utilization of funds, cleanliness and transaction should be ensured. She said that district and block level conferences should be held to ensure better management of children and schools by the school management committees. The mukhiyas should issue district level letters on monthly inspection of schools.
The CS asked the education officials to organize hockey, football and volleyball matches at district level to encourage sportsmanship among students. The services of local sportspersons or national or international level specialized sportspersons may also be taken to coach the students, she said.
Verma said the DSE of each district should identify five panchayats of every block to make them zero dropout blocks by April 2017 and make all panchayats zero dropout panchayats by March 2019.
