Three fold Monitoring approach is adopted

  1. Data based monitoring

  2. Field based monitoring specifically academic monitoring

  3. Review based monitoring

  1. Data based monitoring

      Data is collected through following formats

  • DISE – Annual format prescribed by GOI.

  • Web based system of online monitoring

Ř       Enrollment and Attendance -Monthly

Ř       Incentive distribution

Ř       Out of school status

Ř       Evaluation

Ř       Civil works

Ř       Habitation wise data

Information flow for collecting data

Ř       Village level- school reports to village in charge & village in charge prepares the information on 28th of every month.

Ř       Cluster level- village in charge submits information on 29th of every month.

Ř       Block level - Cluster in charge submits information on 2nd of every Month , Block coordinator analyse the information & submit  to district before 5th of every month.

Ř       Data Collection Process

Ř       At Village level

Ř       Every school presents its current status on enrolment, attendance and achievement, analyses the data and submits it to the Head teacher of the village before third Saturday of every month.

Ř       At Janshiksha Kendra level

Ř       The Head teacher of the village submits the status report of all schools of the village to the Jan Shikshak on 29th of every month. The Jan Shikshak analyses the information and submits the information at the Block to the concerned officer during the monthly training program at DIET.

Ř       At Block level

Ř       The Block Resource Centre Coordinator and Block Academic Coordinator collect the JSK information on 2nd of every month and compile it in the prescribed format enter in the software at the block. They also analyze the information and plan remedial actions for the next month.

Ř       At District level

Ř       Block coordinators compile and analyze the information and submit it at the district office. The district officials then compile and analyze the information block wise and submit the report at the State headquarters in the prescribed format. Special focus is laid on monitoring of the backward pockets.

 

  1. Field based monitoring-

The objectives of Field monitoring are -

·         To check Authenticity of data

·         On sport support and guidance

·         Cross checking of school visits

Regular monthly field visits ensured at all levels by SSA and Education functionaries. Every body has given Monthly targets of school visits.

Field based monitoring - Academic monitoring

Field based monitoring has three- fold objectives:

·         To examine the authenticity of the data received through the formats.

·         To provide on-the-spot support and guidance to the teachers in the form of in-situ training.

·         To coordinate with the PTAs to solve the problems that causes hindrance in the development of the schools.

Field based monitoring is an important monitoring tool for improving the quality of schools. A monitoring plan for rigorous monitoring, has been developed and implemented across the State.

This ensures follow up on school supervision as well as cross checking on the quality of school visit at each level. It is expected that a full day visit at school in which supervisor assists the teacher, does learner assessment, guide teacher to improve achievement level of children and check the reports and work done in the school against the quarterly academic plan and make suggestions for improvement, which will be followed up in the next visit. 

Regular school visits by various functionaries

  • Every Janshikshak (CRC) has to visit all schools of the cluster in a month.

  • All BRCC, BAC, BGC, DPC, DGC, APCs, have to visit at least 30 schools in a month.

  • DPCs have to visit 30 schools in a month.

  • DEOs have to visit at least 20 schools in a month.

  • DIET Personnel's have to visit 25  schools regularly.

Officers at the State level has been made officer In-Charge (OIC) for districts  for monitoring purposes. Monthly targets have been fixed for these OICs along with district, block and JSK levels. The DEOs and BEOs have also been given monitoring targets.

3. Review based monitoring

Monthly review is being done at all levels these review provides an opportunity to discuss the problems and find out solutions.

·         Fortnightly review  through Video conferencing 

·         Based on data poor performing villages in reference to girls enrollment, no. of out of school girls, below average result, No. of CWSN are identified as backward pockets. These backward pocket community and teachers meeting is being held at block level.

·         Monthly review has been conducted with districts functionaries at state level.

·         The information received from districts is analysed by state and disseminated to districts. The performances of districts are graded and communicated to districts to improve their performance.

 

Monthly review is being done at all the levels i.e. PTA, JSK, JPSK, ZSK & RSK. These monthly meetings aim at reviewing the implemented strategies and activities for achieving the goals of UEE. At the same time, this also provides an opportunity to discuss the problems and find the solutions. This provides the stakeholders a common platform to set goals and plan further strategies. Following is a standing monthly calendar for review based monitoring at various levels.

  • School and Classroom Environment

  • Curriculum and Teaching Learning Material

  • Teacher Preparation

  • Opportunity Time (Teaching-Learning Time)

  • Classroom Practices and Processes

  • Learners' Assessment, Monitoring and Supervision

Based on the above indicators, that have been identified, the following monitoring levels have been identified.

(i)   School/ Community Level

(ii)  Cluster Level

(iii) Block Level

·         Grading of the progress of all districts is done and communicated to the District Collectors and Divisional commissioners.

·         District Education Officers and DPCs wherein the findings of Quality Evaluation Tools is shared and review of progress of all districts of the division is done.

Capacity Building of SSA Functionaries: Proposals for 2010-11

The role of DPCs, BRCCs, BACs and CACs is of great importance for proper implementation of SSA. Regular training of these functionaries is imperative for proper management and monitoring of the programme.

Training of BACs & CACs

RSK had designed a well thought training program of Jan Shikshaks (CACs) and BACs . The main objective of this training is to bring attitudinal change in BACs and CACs for improved monitoring and evaluation of elementary schools. Besides this, multi-grade teaching is a major problem of the State. Hence, this training also aims at solving this problem. During this course the following was done:

·        All CACs and BACs will be trained on monitoring issues and on site resource support with the help of DIET and PGBTs.

·        In 2010-11 CACs, CHs, BACs, BRCCs and DPCs will be trained to monitor teacher absenteeism, time on task and opportunity of learning.

·        Need assessment for capacity building of DIET faculty will be done. On the basis of this capacity development of DIET faculty members will be done through experts in requisite field. The trainings will be outsourced to expert NGOs/Institutions.

Capacity Building of officers from School Education department and Tribal Welfare Department

As discussed above integration of School Education Department with SSA is being done. This will call for orientation of officers from School Education department on SSA. Apart from this the capacities of these officers need to be enhanced in the areas like departmental management and administration, planning, finance and school management. There are 89 blocks which are under the jurisdiction of Tribal Welfare Department for School education purpose. The Assistant Commissioners TWD and BEOs related to these blocks will also be trained on the above mentioned points.

Development of software for Teacher Data Base

A software has been developed for maintenance of teacher data base through NIC. This software captures the information of all teachers of primary and upper primary schools.  A unique code given to each teacher. The software also captures name of the teacher, place of posting, information of DDO, other details of teachers like PAN number, GPF account number, etc. The software also include the head wise Gross Salary details and deductions, as well as Net Salary payable. This Teacher data Base used for generating electronic bills, pay slip, ensuring of timely increments, rationalization / posting of teachers etc. In the second phase Service Book details of teachers will also be incorporated in the Teachers Data Base.
