THE STATE government has issued detailed directives on teaching, other academic and extra-curricular activities to be undertaken at the government colleges during academic session 2006-07. The government has issued a notification in this regard and urged the principals to follow the directives strictly.

The notification stressed on the mandatory attendance of 75 per cent by the students and asked colleges to ensure the attendance. The government has directed that if any student has shortfall of attendance despite his or her parents being notified (to be done if the student remains absent continuously for 10 days) then the student should not be allowed to take exams.

The principals have also been asked to ensure through head of departments that the classes are conducted regularly and on time.

The principals have also been asked to conduct a meeting on every last Saturday of a month wherein the academic and other activities could be reviewed. Directives have also been issued regarding strict adherence to the rules of ban on private tuitions by the collegiate teachers.

The teachers have been warned of strict action if this rule is violated. The notification also mentions about extra-curricular activities – mainly cultural and sports activities to be undertaken at the colleges. The principals have been asked to conduct them in time-bound manner.

The list of the expert teachers in extra curricular activities should also be put on notice board so that the students could seek benefit of their talent, the notification says.

The Government Excellence and Autonomous Colleges have been asked to follow the calendar fixed by the coordination committee of the universities strictly. Principals have been asked to update information on the basis of those available on the website of the department.
