SED to involve PRIs for monitoring Primary Schools

SRINAGAR: To monitor and improvise different interventions in education in Primary schools across Kashmir, the School Education Department will involve Panchayat Raj Institutions (PRIs).

According to a top official at the Directorate of School Education Kashmir (DSEK) in an official communiqué to Chief Education Officers (CEOs) and District Institute of Education and Trainings (DIETs) to involve the Panchayat’s in the monitoring of primary schools.

The official communiqué reads that in a review meeting of centrally sponsored scheme Samagra Shiksha in Jammu and Kashmir, the Chief Secretary in the month of November passed instructions for the improvisation of different interventions in education and monitoring of primary schools by Panchayat Raj Institutions (PRIs).

“In this context, the CEOs, and DIETs are advised to instruct Zonal Education Officers (ZEOs) to inform the PRIs of their zone to take up the monitoring of primary schools and winter camps for which a ‘Monthly School Evaluation Tool’ has been formulated by the Directorate of School Education Kashmir (DSEK) to be considered for the monitoring purpose,” it reads

The official said that the PRIs have been asked to submit the monthly reports of school performance to concerned Zonal Education officers for the redressal of discrepancies thereof.

“Besides, the PRIs may be given the soft copy of learning outcome-document of NCERT wherein the class and age appropriate competencies and skills of children are recorded which will help the PRIs to assess the learning levels of students,” reads the communiqué.

It also reads that the monthly school evaluation tool may be discussed with PRIs in the meetings and the service of DIET faculty, Zonal Resource Groups (ZRGs) and Education Reform Committees can be utilized for the purpose—(KNO)
