With the revised teacher's manual on the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) available with schools, CBSE has underlined that "teachers should use these manuals and familiarise themselves with the guidelines provided in them".
CCE was launched a couple of years back in classes to decrease the accumulated stress of board exams on the students and to introduce a more uniform and comprehensive pattern in education for the children all over the nation.
However, the programme gave rise to doubts and confusions with regards to the role of teachers in following it.
Taking this into account, CBSE in a new year circular to all affiliated schools have also asked schools heads to continuously interact with teachers to remove the established notion that the reformative measure is over-burdening them.
"It is requested that school heads to continuously interact with the teachers and discuss with them about changed role of teachers in view of the implementation of CCE. The established notion that teachers have to do everything in terms of teacher talk, asking questions and often times answering them before students can think, needs to be reviewed," CBSE said in its circular.
The teacher has to appreciate that her role is now more as collaborator and facilitator rather than instructor, the circular added.
CCE also aims to help in improving students performances by identifying their learning difficulties at regular time intervals right and employing suitable remedial measures for enhancing their learning performance.
It has reiterated that no school under the guise of enforcing discipline should mistreat any student or parent.
Schools should desist from exploiting parents by opening book shops or uniform centres which prescribe branded accessories and shoes at inflated costs as this also amounts to discrimination between children, it said.
As implementation of CCE has made involvement of parents in school affairs more feasible, the Board has advised school head to have continuous interaction with the parents and "utilise the vast resource of parent interactions for quality enhancement of schools".
The Board has also encouraged innovations in schools by bringing together the best practices in education within schools affiliated to it.
