GUWAHATI, July 28 - With a view to improving the performance of provincialised schools in the city and such institutions and their students in the HSLC examinations, the Kamrup Metro district administration has chalked out a comprehensive plan of action involving certain initiatives.
Kamrup Metro Deputy Commissioner Dr M Angamuthu told The Assam Tribune that as part of the action plan all the schools that have achieved 100 per cent success rate in the last HSLC exams will prepare a note of their activities undertaken for improvement of their academic results and submit it to the Inspector of Schools immediately.
The Inspector of Schools will, in turn, appraise the �tips� from such schools to other institutions so that they can also initiate steps to improve their results in the next HSLC exams.
�Schools with below 60 per cent pass percentage will be reviewed every month and stringent action will be taken if the heads of the schools concerned do not follow the guidelines to improve their performance,� said Dr Angamuthu.
The DC has also warned the educational institutions with below 50 per cent pass percentage to take urgent initiatives to improve the results next year.
All the heads of provincialised schools have also been instructed to constitute a team exclusively to implement various works relating to Swachh Bharat Abhiyan under the leadership of a teacher. A total of five students will also be included in the team for monitoring the activities for implementation of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
�Instructions have also been issued that a team be constituted for implementing the Control of Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act, 2003, in every educational institution under the leadership of a teacher. In this team also, five students will be included. The team will monitor every aspect for implementation of various provisions of the Act which has banned sale and use of tobacco and other byproducts from within 100 metre vicinity of educational institutions,� he said.
All the activities of both teams will be uploaded by proper mobile application-based system and sent to the Inspector of Schools.
The administration has also instructed that an active �eco club� be constituted in every school for preservation of the environment of the school and nearby areas. The feedback of such clubs will be sent to the Inspector of Schools every week for appraisal by the DC.
Schools have also been told to implement at least one plantation programme before August 15 and to take necessary steps for preservation of the saplings planted in the respective schools.
In addition, the administration has also decided to give certain awards to encourage the schools to strive for excellence. Accordingly, ten schools with 100 per cent pass percentage will be awarded, while ten schools will be awarded for implementation of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and ten others for implementation of the Control of Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act, 2003.
�Three schools will be awarded for implementation of the �Vidyajyoti Programme� initiated in 2014 by the district administration to enhance capacity building of slow learner students of Class IX,� said Dr Angamuthu.
