Hyderabad: Teachers working in Zilla Parishad, Government Aided, Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas (KGBVs), Model Schools and Telangana Residential Educational Institutions Society, may have to start attending the schools from June 16. A proposal to this effect has recently been sent to the State government by the School Education Department seeking necessary orders for teachers to attend the schools.
Earlier, the State government had issued orders to close all educational institutions and declared summer holidays from April 27 till May 31. The holidays were extended for schools up to June 15 in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
As per the proposal, teachers will prepare the student-wise action plan to reach out to every student through online mode. “Consequent to the meeting conducted by the Minister for Education on June 9, it is proposed to issue instructions to all the teachers working in ZP, Government Aided, KGBV, Model Schools and TREIS to attend schools from June 16 and to start preparing the student-wise action plan to reach out to every student through online mode and also engage in other preparatory activities in the school. Therefore, I request the Government to issue appropriate orders in this regard,” read a proposal sent by the Director of School Education to the government.
An order permitting teachers to attend the schools is likely to be issued on Monday. The schools were asked to take up preparatory works including cleaning of the premises. The teachers were told to ensure all students download the T-SAT mobile application for digital/online classes besides making class-wise groups and then monitor the same.
As many as 2,185 digital lessons were prepared in English, Telugu, and Urdu for the online/digital classes during the academic year 2020-21. These videos lessons were telecast through T-SAT network channels and Doordarshan and also made available on the State Council of Educational Research and Training website.
