TIRUCHI: To improve Tiruchi district's standing in the State in terms of performance in X and XII standard public examinations, teams will visit schools to study best practices in Virudhunagar district that has been maintaining the first position for the last two decades .

Headmasters and subject teachers from top-notch schools in Virudhunagar district will also be invited to Tiruchi to guide their counterparts to scale up their performance, the chief educational officer (CEO) T. Mohanakumar said on Wednesday.

Addressing a press conference upon taking charge, Mr. Mohanakumar said Erode, Sivaganga and Thanjavur were the other districts that were ahead of Tiruchi.

The overall pass percentages were 91 and 90.5 in SSLC and Plus Two respectively in the district.

Unlike in the past, when common study materials were prepared and distributed, teachers in each school have been instructed to prepare study materials for slow learners factoring in the latter's capabilities.

Headmasters have been asked to prepare lists of top, average and slow performers. The strategy of facilitating top performers to guide slow performers on an individual basis will be adopted.

Teachers will give special attention to average students. A further thrust will be accorded for conduct of slip tests and monthly tests, the CEO said.

The department will ensure reach of all government schemes to the students through the respective headmasters. But for those in the vocational stream, text books have been supplied to all students. Books for vocational group students will be provided in a week's time, he said.

Mr. Mohanakumar later addressed a meeting of headmasters to discuss academic improvement.

He emphasised on use of teaching-learning materials, maintenance of ‘work done' register, and monitoring of teaching standards by headmasters.

The CEO advocated special classes for slow learners right from VI to XII standards and urged headmasters to encourage NSS, scouts, Junior Red Cross and other extra-curricular activities.
