All the Regional Joint Directors of School Education and the District Educational Officers and Project Officers, Sarva Siksha Abhiyan in the state are informed that, Government of India enacted the Right to Education Act 2009. As per section 25(1) of RTE Act 2009 envisages that the appropriate Government and the local authority shall ensure that the Pupil-Teacher Ratio, as specified in the Schedule, is maintained in each school.”
The School Education Department constituted a Working Group to study and report on the Teacher – Pupil Ratio and modalities for Resource Redistribution Rationalization (RR-R) of Schools and Teachers working in Primary (Govt./ZP/MP) in the State.
The Working Group examined (a) the Aadhar Mapped U-DISE and Child Information Data (b) children yet to be enrolled in new academic year (c) No. of Schools (d) No. of Teachers (e) No. of Gram Panchayats, (f) Schools in each Gram Panchayat (g) the scope of positive consolidation of the schools within the Gram Panchayat were the enrollment is less than 30 in each school (h) availability of Schools within 1 Km radius in respect of Primary Schools, 3 KM radius in respect of Upper Primary Schools, 5 Kms radius in respect of High Schools/Success Schools, (i) the scope for Resource Redistribution – Rationalization in terms of infrastructure and human resources etc.
The Working Group also took into consideration the performance of Andhra Pradesh in terms of Key Education Indicators. It also studied the key findings relating to the learning levels of students in Government schools in the State as per the National level Annual Status of Education Report 2014 (ASER) and State Level Achievement Survey 2014-15 (SLAS).
The Working Group noted that while the Teacher – Pupil Ratio (TPR) at the State and district level is higher than the national average, at the School level it needs to be improved. Further, it found that there are some schools with higher student strength vis- à-vis the sanctioned teaching posts and on the other hand some schools with uneconomic strength of students have more teachers.
The Working Group also noted that there are several Primary Schools within a radius of 1 Km with less than 30 enrollment and with more than 30 enrollment. The Working Group recommended that positive consolidation of such Schools and staff/posts in these schools may be done by pooling them to develop as a Model Primary Schools in the Gram Panchayat / Municipality. Such Resource Redistribution – Rationalization help in making best use of the available resources – infrastructure, teachers, etc. It will make it possible for ensuing one Teacher for one Class and minimize multi grade teaching by single teacher which is resulting in poor learning levels.
- Identify the Number of Primary schools (Govt.,/MPP/Mpl)functioning in the Gram
Panchayat / Municipality.
- Where there are multiple Primary Schools in a Gram Panchayat / Municipality within 1 km radius and with < 30 students enrolled, they may be consolidated as one Model Primary School.
- The Schools with <30 enrolment is to be consolidated with the schools with >30 enrolment (or vice-versa) within 1 KM radius in the Gram Panchayat
- The identified school to be designated as Adarsha Pradhamika Paatasala (Model
Primary School) shall be Centrally located and accessible.
- Primary/Upper Primary School may be identified and designated as Adarsha
Pradhamika Paatasala (Model Primary School) for that GP/Municipality
- The identified Adarsha Pradhamika Paatasala (Model Primary School) must have adequate land for future expansion.
- There will be no multi grade/class teaching by 1 Teacher in the Model Primary
- In no instance should any Primary school beyond 1 Km be included in this positive consolidation exercise.
- The basic data for positive consolidation of Primary Schools shall be “Child Info – Aadhar seeded data”.
- Exceptions for positive consolidation are (i) where there is only one primary school in the whole Gram Panchayat (even with <30 enrolments), (ii) Schools which have Physical barriers – Canal, National Highway, Railway track, etc., (iii)schools located in Primitive Tribal Groups’ habitations,(iv) Minor medium schools, (v) Primary Schools in exclusive SC, ST colonies. If the minor media schools and the schools in SC/ST colonies prefer to be consolidated with the Model Primary School of the Gram Panchayat such request may be agreed to.
- The scope for identifying more than one Model Schools in a GP/Municipality if the enrolment after consolidation is over 150 in the first Model Primary School.
- Other Primary Schools that continue to function within 1 Km in the same GP/Municipality where positive consolidation is undertaken will be provided Teachers as per RTE norm of 1:30. One Class-One Teacher norm will be applied when enrolment improves in these schools.
- The Premises of the Primary School which is consolidated with the Model
Primary School in the Gram Panchayat can be used as an attached ECE (Early Childhood Centre). This will help in improving enrolment in the Adarsha Pradhamika Paatasala (Model Primary School). The necessary logistical support will be provided in coordination with the Women and Child Welfare Department.
Therefore, all the Regional Joint Director of School Education and the District Educational Officers are instructed to take up preliminary exercise of Resource Redistribution- Rationalization duly verifying the physical status, availability of teachers, enrollment of students in each school in each Gram Panchayat, feasibility of consolidation of Primary schools and identifying the Model Primary school, duly constituting a Committee at Mandal level with the following Officers:
(1) Mandal Parishad Development Officer
(2) Mandal Educational Officer
(3) Senior Primary school Headmaster in the Mandal
(4) Cluster Resource Person (S.S.A)
