With a view to ensure transparency and increase the efficiency of the school education department in the state, the education department has decided to upload information regarding each and every aspect of schools, be it staff, students or infrastructure facilities on the e-PunjabSchool web portal.
Besides making the information available online, the initiative would also mitigate the task of preparing data so that school teachers can concentrate more on classroom teaching.
District education officer, Dinesh Kumar said that the initiative would prove to be a revolutionary step towards bringing in efficiency in the school education system.
"The district with the active cooperation of the management informatics system coordinator, Gagan Gandhi as well as the school heads had already completed uploading the data of as many as 112 middle, 58 high and 43 senior secondary schools on the e-Punjab web portal," said the DEO adding that the process of uploading the data of primary schools was going on.
The special block-wise training workshops for school teachers is also being organised wherein they are being instructed on how to upload data correctly.
Afterwards, the process for uploading informatics data of private schools would be started.
Besides, the school teachers are being exhorted to mobilise school management committees for launching concerted efforts to make the people aware about the facilities such as free education, free books, mid day meal, well qualified staff, quality education available in the schools to motivate them to get their wards admitted in the government schools.
