Now, Education Dept to train principals on conduct of duties

Tribune News Service

Jalandhar, April 15

While regular glitches and lack of information about various mobile apps by the Education Department have caused the process of information flow to the department from various schools to be riddled with flaws and anomalies, the department is now holding a training session of all DEOs and department officials to ensure a smooth conduct of the work for the principals.

A training of the DEOs, deputy DEOs and principals up to the 550 seniority list of principals of the state will be held by the department from April 19 to 21.

The training will also include lessons to principals on handling school finances and day-to-day activities.

All activities listed on the training session include — teachers shall be trained in budget preparation, responsibilities of DDOs, maintenance of cash books, procurement of rules and stores. Fixation of pay under revised pay scale rules 2009, promotion/ACP pension and other retirement, benefits, and pre-mature, retirement rules, new pension scheme with effect 1.1.2004. Punishment and appeal rules, suspension, dismissal, removal, resignation, travelling allowance, leave travel concessions, different kinds of leaves, GPF rules, GIS employees conduct rules 1966, SSA RMSA MDM activities.

The training shall also include issues like the filling of school- related stats on the e-Punjab portal, generation of different kinds of reports based on stats filled by schools, quick preparation of information to be filled on e-Punjab as per repeated queries by various offices.

Information regarding the use of various mobile applications, updates on daily works being done on the portal like marking attendance on mid-day meal apps etc, updates on the U-DISE survey and its importance, suggestions being taken on the better updating and effectiveness of the portal.

A district-based principal said, “Most of the apps have been launched by the department without providing any information to principals about their working. Many schools have been skipping the work. In fact, the simultaneous maintenance of manual registers for mid-day meal is a huge grouse. We plan to take up these issues during the training. Hopefully, it will help us to be better versed with the apps.”
