Dist all set to achieve better SSLC results
Discouraged over its not-so-great performance in the recently declared SSLC exam results, the Education Department does not want to leave any stone unturned, in order to better its performance this year.
With the beginning of the academic year, the authorities concerned are already on their mission to achieve their goal.
‘Spoorthi Sourabha’, a book comprising an action plan for 2012-13 and guidelines to achieve positive results apart from a comprehensive analysis of the 2012 results has been compiled by Examination Nodal officer A N Nagendra Prasad and the book is ready for printing. The guide book will be made available at all the schools by June end.
This is the third such guide being brought out to help school headmasters to prepare an action plan and work towards improving their school performance.
In the year 2010, ‘Spoorthi’ was jointly compiled by the Zilla Panchayat and Public Instruction Department, later it was followed by ‘Navya Spoorthi’.
The new guide suggests school authorities about adoption of schools, students and mandatory exam action plan to be followed throughout the year, meetings of high school head masters and also includes activities to be undertaken.
Besides, the book also has monthly action plan till April 2013. It also includes model student diary where teachers can monitor their performance.
This year 75 schools which have scored 80 per cent result have been given for adoption to the Educational Department officers as against schools with low results being given for adoption in the last two years.
Moreover this year, the overall result of the schools was around 80 per cent and more and efforts are made to bring it to 100 per cent in the coming year, says Nagendra Prasad.
Teachers have been directed to conduct bridge courses after preparatory examinations, he added. Kolar had secured 8th place in the year 2010-11 in SSLC examinations.
But this year it was pushed down to 21st rank, though there was not much difference in the average pass per centage.
Last year the result was 81.46 per cent, whereas this year it was 79.83 per cent. Various programmes will be implemented to get better results in the coming year, he explained.
