GOA: Schools are yet to reopen for the new academic year 2020-21, but the directorate of education (DoE), to take stock of the situation, has asked aided schools to provide all details of its student and teacher numbers for the year. The DoE said that ‘due to some discrepancies’ the grant-in-aid institutions are being asked to provide the ‘correct information’ by August 7.
The DoE said that any changes in enrolment figures can be updated later. Many schools may not be able to get the correct picture of its student numbers as several migrant families have left the state due to the pandemic.
“The staff recruited on regular basis should be correctly shown and the NOCs over the last three academic years, recruitment done during the three years, the proposed recruitment should be invariably shown, so as to take into consideration the existing staff position in the school,” the DoE told aided schools. All management should submit information about surplus staff and any irregularities in this regard will be viewed seriously, schools have been told.
