BENGALURU: SOON, parents can go online to track the school attendance of not just their children but also of the class teachers.
The Department of Primary and Secondary Education will introduce this tracking system in government as well as private schools from this academic year.  
Primary and Secondary Education Minister Tanveer Sait told reporters that they would introduce biometric attendance system for school teachers, which will be incorporated into the existing Student Tracking System.

Once introduced, the teachers’ attendance can be tracked online as it will be available in a public platform. “It will help parents track the teachers. We will introduce this in all state-owned schools and later, in private schools. We are the first in India to take this major step,’’ he said.
There are close to 76,000 schools, including government and aided, in the state.

“We have completed GIS (Geographic Information System) mapping of all schools. We will give annual maintenance charge to the headmaster and the School Development and Monitoring Committee,” he said.
“Very soon, we will introduce a system where one has to put details of toilets, compound, laboratory among others in schools along with photographs. We can monitor this online. We will know how money is being utilised.’’
