Collector Roanld Rose addressing the Mandal Education Officers and principals of all government schools in Mahbubnagar on Thursday
Mahbubnagar: District Collector Ronald Rose has directed all the principals of schools to not to grant leave to teachers until the commencement of SSC board exams, to begin from March 15, and asked them to fully prepare the students for the upcoming public exams in order to put the district on top slot in the State with cent per cent results.
Addressing the District Education Officer and school principals at the Zilla Parishad Meeting Hall in Mahbubnagar on Thursday, Ronald Rose said, “It is the responsibility of school principals, Mandal Education Officers and the subject teachers to ensure that SSC students of their respective schools and mandals get cent per cent results in the upcoming public exams. In view of this, we have given directions to all principals that under any circumstances no subject teacher will be granted leave until March 15,” said the Collector.
The Collector strictly warned the teachers or any other faculty of encouraging malpractice or mass copying during the exams and if anyone was found indulging in any such practices, strict action would be initiated against them. Stating that special focus should be laid on SSC students by conducting special classes and mock tests, the Collector enquired about the reasons for slipshod performance of certain government schools in the district and asked the principals concerned to take immediate corrective measures to help students shine in SSC exams. He further warned the school authorities of strict disciplinary action against if they failed to achieve the desired results.
The collector wondered why the government schools were not able to score the indented results despite necessary facilities. “Last year, more than 4,400 SSC students in the district have failed to clear the exams. This year, we do not want to repeat the same. If any school is not able to achieve good results in SSC, the principal and the subject teachers would be held responsible.
We have also seen last year majority students have failed in Mathematics. In view of this, we have directed the school principals to lay special focus on the mathematics subject and arrange for special classes to students by coordinating with MEOs,” said the Collector.
District Education Officer Somireddy, District Examination Coordinators Venkateshwarlu and Hemachander, MEOs and principals of ZPHS, KGBV and other government schools attended the meeting.
