State to appoint guest teachers in schools soon

To ensure there is no staff crunch ahead of the annual exams for the academic year 2014-15, the State government has given its consent for appointment of guest teachers in government primary and high schools across the State.

Mohammed Mohsin, Commissioner for Public Instruction, said that they had raised the staff crunch issue before Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who approved the request for appointment of guest teachers. “We want to make sure students do not suffer ahead of exams. These appointments are local. It can be done by the headmasters themselves. The final approving authority, however, will be the DDPIs,” he said.

The appointments made at this juncture would be valid till the end of the academic year 2014-15, that is until March 2015. The remuneration for primary teachers will be Rs 5,500 and for high school teachers it will be Rs 6,000. The appointments can be made immediately, Mohsin added.

According to a circular issued by the Department of Public Instruction on November 24, there are 5,000 vacant assistant teacher positions for primary schools and 800 in high schools.
The applicants can register themselves at the Block Education Officers' office from December 1 to 8. The applications will be scrutinised from December 9 to 10. The list of selected teachers will be put up on December 11.
