Jorhat, Oct. 10: Jorhat inspector of schools Kamal Jyoti Gogoi has come up with a plan for all the government and government-aided schools to attain 100 per cent pass percentage in the HSLC examination.
For this purpose, Gogoi has announced awards for the top 10 schools on the basis of their performance. There would also be best teacher awards subject-wise and better performing schools would be recommended for various financial grants from the state government and Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan.
Altogether there are 365 schools (high and higher secondary) that include government and venture schools (which receive financial aid from the government) in Jorhat district.
Gogoi told The Telegraph here today that the plan has been prepared to raise the overall performance of the schools.
“We have set a target for 100 per cent pass percentage to the schools and if the students and teachers of the schools sincerely try to achieve it, then the performance is expected to be better than in the previous year,” Gogoi said.
He said the announcement of awards for the schools and teachers and top 10 schools is expected to foster a more competitive spirit among the students.
Already the performance of Jorhat district in the HSLC examination among other districts of the state was “much ahead” this year. The district recorded a pass percentage of 78 per cent and came third among the districts in terms of pass percentage. Kamrup and Dhemaji districts bagged the first and second positions with a pass percentage of above 80 per cent.
Gogoi said running trophies with gifts and citations would be given away by his office to the top 10 schools on the basis of their HSLC examination performance on Teachers’ Day next year. Awards for the best teacher would be given subject-wise on the basis of the performance of the students in each subject.
“We will accord priority in recommending the better performing schools for various financial aids from the state government and the Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan,” he said.
The best disciplined school and cleanest school awards would also be given on the basis of their yearly performance in the respective categories. Gogoi said in these two categories, assessment will be made with the help of reputed NGOs in collecting information and judging the schools.
On the other hand, the inspector said he had directed all government and government-aided high and higher secondary schools in Majuli to take extra classes to make up for the recent flood-induced closure for about 12 days.
He has written to the schools to take additional classes on Sundays and extra classes on regular days in the morning or in the afternoon.
There are 41 government and 56 venture schools in Majuli.
