Delhi govt conducts mega PTM in over 1,000 schools
New Delhi:The Delhi government today organised this year's first mega parent-teacher meeting in its 1,041 schools across the national capital.
"It is evident that the parent teacher engagement which the government aimed to institutionalise through Mega PTMs has been achieved.
"We are happy that this exercise, which used to be limited to big private schools, has now become an integral part of the culture of government schools," Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.
Sisodia, who is also Delhi's Education Minister, visited several government schools in Hari Nagar and Shakti Nagar to interact with parents, students and teachers.
"For class 9-12, schools informed parents about the changes notified by CBSE in the examination scheme like requirement of 33 per cent marks (27 marks out of 80 marks) for passing and inclusion of complete syllabus in end term/final examination," a senior Directorate of Education (DoE) official said.
The AAP dispensation had last year introduced the concept of PTMs in government schools on the lines of a similar exercise conducted by private schools to keep parents in loop about their ward's performances and areas with scope of improvement.
