Officials of Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan (RMSA) conducted a surprise inspection at schools in and around Tirupattur last week.

According to assistant district programme coordinator M S Mani, the Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system has been extended to IX standard from this year and the students of this class have trimester system with mark grades in the examinations.

As the schools would be conducting the first trimester examination shortly, the inspection was carried out to assess the preparations of the teachers and the readiness of the students to take on the new examination pattern, said Mani.

The RMSA is being implemented in 337 government high and higher secondary schools  across the district and a grant of Rs 75,000 has been given to each school for improving infrastructure and laboratory facilities, purchasing books, periodicals and dailies and undertaking minor repairs.

Mani said the officials inspected three schools in Javadu Hills in Pudurnadu, Puliyur and Nellivasal,  maintained by the forest department, and reviewed the CCE assessment made by teachers.

At the government school at Matrapalli, the teachers were advised to use the funds from the RMSA to repair toilets and the government school at Vengalapuram was advised to convene the school development committee meeting.

The programme coordinator said that around 60 headmasters of the schools throughout the district were identified as under-performers and they would be receiving necessary training to improve their skills.
