TS School Complex Meetings Schedule for the Year 2017-18 - PS & UP Level SCX Meetings Schedule:

The Department of School Education has conducted Teacher Trainings at Primary level, UP level and at Secondary level in first and second week of June, 2017 in non-language subjects in all the districts in the State. There is a need to consolidate the learning of the teachers in the post-training period on the various academic issues discussed in the training viz. Academic standards, pedagogical practices, assessment processes, use of textbooks, project works. Further these issues need to be practised in the classrooms and subsequently there is a need to share the reflections of the teachers on its implications.

TS School Complex Meetings Schedule for the Year 2017-18 - PS & UP Level SCX Meetings Schedule


Here the School complex meetings play a critical role in re-vitalizing the energies of the teaching community towards shared goal i.e “Improving the classroom processes for better learning”
More over the School complex meetings are not mere meeting of teachers, in fact they are the centers  for conduct of training of teachers on continuum basis. Infact the school complex meetings are the extension of the training of teachers. The AWP &B of SSA indicates the School complex meetings under training component.  Although the  present frame work of school complex meetings covers only Elementary schools ie teachers handling classes I to VIII. As a matter of fact  Class-VIII and upper primary sections VI & Vii classes are part of High schools as per the structure of High schools in the State. The teachers who are handling these classes, at least class-VIII are handling classes IX and X.

Hence in this background, the concept of school complex meetings may be extended to even for the classes IX and X which falls under RMSA.  Although the teachers are one and same teaching VIII and IX & X , with the extension of classes, the teachers may have the opportunity to discuss the academic issues of classes IX and X also.
