It is evident that the parent teachers’ engagement, which the govt’s objective to institutionalise through mega PTMs has been achieved, said Sisodia.
New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government on Friday organised this year’s first mega parent-teacher meeting in as many as 1,041 schools across the capital.
“It is evident that the parent teachers’ engagement, which the government’s objective to institutionalise through mega PTMs has been achieved. We are happy that this exercise, which used to be limited to certain private schools, has now become an integral part of the culture of the government schools,” deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said.
Sisodia, who is also the Delhi's education minister, visited several government schools in Hari Nagar and Shakti Nagar areas in order to interact with the parents, students and teachers.
“For Classes 9 to 12, the government schools informed the parents about the changes notified by the CBSE in the examination scheme such as requirement of 33 per cent marks (27 marks out of 80 marks) for passing and inclusion of complete syllabus in end term or final examination,” a senior Directorate of Education (DoE) official said.
The government had last year introduced the concept of mega PTMs in the government schools on the lines of a similar exercise conducted by the private schools to keep the parents in the loop about their ward’s performances and the areas where the students need to improve.
