Amaravati, June 3: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has instructed the officials to maintain the student-teacher ratio and affect the transfers accordingly and said that schools should be spruced up before the reopening on August 3.
During a review meeting on Nadu Nedu held here on Wednesday, the officials placed the data before the Chief Minister about the proposed relocation of teachers to match the teacher-student ratio. The Chief Minister said that the transfers should be done online and should be oriented towards the benefit of the students.
Due to the method followed in 2017, single teachers were allotted to 7,991 schools and most of the schools have been closed down. The decisions at that time were taken only to demoralize government schools and to encourage private schools.

Now there should be a constant appraisal on the students from Class 6 to Class 10. The data on the performance of the students should be placed online which gives a detailed overview of the strengths and weaknesses of the student to take corrective measures.
An App should he developed for Digital Learning where the doubts can be cleared through video call, the Chief Minister said.

SOP should be prepared on maintaining the quality in revamping of schools under Nadu Nedu and people should know about the high quality of work, he said adding that Nadu Nedu is one programme which he likes very much. The Engineering Assistant in Village and Ward Secretariats should be involved in the exercise, he said.
The officials said that Rs 533 crores is available with the Parents’ Committees. Maximum amount is being spent in Guntur district and the work has speeded up after the lockdown has been lifted last week. The works are being expedited with the appointment of JCs, the officials said.
The Jagananna Goru Mudda should have the same menu and quality in schools all over the State, the Chief Minister said and insisted that there should be no delay in payment of bills and a constant monitoring should be done at ground level from district collector and downwards.
