Gurgaon: To rationalise the allotment of teachers to various posts, the education department has sought details of the number of students studying in classes 6 to 12. All the district education officers have been directed to furnish the details by March 25.
In a recently issued circular, the education department asked all the education officers to direct the school heads to update the complete data of the number of students studying in these classes. The list has to be updated based on streams and subjects. The exercise is being done to rationalise the deployment of Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) and Post Graduate Teachers (PGTs) to fill the vacancies in various posts across the state. “The schools will also have to furnish the proof of completing the exercise to their respective district education department,” reads the circular.
The department has further warned the schools if the exercise is not carried out diligently leading to wrong or inadequate allotment of the teachers, the school administration will be held accountable.
The education department has claimed that the current exercise is being done to promote various TGT and PGTs and allot them schools on a need-basis.
“The exercise is being carried out keeping the mandatory 1:30 ratio of teachers and students per subject. The exercise will also give an accurate estimate of the number of vacancies and where there are more teachers than required,” said an education department official.
