A meeting of staff and members of management committees of schools was also held to enhance the role of monitoring officers, he added.
Das said that the Haryana Education Department has decided to conduct monitoring of about 250 schools in the state every fortnight to assess and enhance the minimum learning level of its students.
The Additional Chief Secretary said that on the basis of the monitoring, it could be said that the situation in terms of minimum learning level in the state was not disappointing.
He also said: “The mindset that students of government schools do not know anything is wrong.”
In terms of district-wise overall performance, Mahendragarh, Gurugram and Rewari were found among the top three, whereas Panchkula, Mewat and Palwal came in the bottom three, Das said.
Das said the teaching staff was also assessed based on the teaching tasks of each teacher, learning level of student, and learning level according to subjects being taught and class of the student.
