Vijayawada: Chief Minister Jagan has called for the mapping of schools and filling the vacancies of the teaching staff on subject-basis as part of the initiatives under the New School Education Policy in AP.

The chief minister held a review meeting on NEP implementation in schools with the education department officials at the camp office at Tadepalli on Wednesday. He asked them to improve the amenities in government schools on par with the increase in the student admissions. He also called for appointing teachers subject-wise and said an ‘action taken report’ (ATR) must reach him soon.

The CM said the officials should focus on providing additional facilities in schools also as the student enrollment is steadily increasing in view due to the Nadu-Nedu programme. Ensure maintenance of the existing infrastructure, and ATRs must reach him regularly.

Jagan asked officials to talk to teachers and seek their cooperation for implementation of the subject-wise teacher appointments. “Explain them the benefits to the students and give due consideration if any objections are raised.”

The officials presented the details of the training sessions being given to teachers on English-proficiency. The chief minister said they must make good use of the apps to develop their knowledge in English.

The chief minister said the district authorities should constantly monitor the schools and officials must inspect the quality of the Gorumudda scheme. Register the lapses in facilities and maintenance and take immediate steps to rectify them, he said.

Jagan directed the officials to focus on providing new recipes under the Gorumudda scheme. Officials must ensure quality food, clean toilets and hygienic conditions in government schools.

Village clinics should focus on the health conditions of students in Anganwadi centers and schools. Conduct regular tests to identify and treat diseases like anaemia among the students, the CM said, and added that the schools should be connected to local PHCs for better treatment.
