Re-Apportionment of Teaching staff in ZP MPP schools Government of India have enacted the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act 2009 and Government of Andhra Pradesh have issued Rules in 2010. As per Section 19 read with the Schedule of the Act, Government have set the norms of number of teachers to be positioned from Class I to Class VIII based on the student strength.

Rationalization of schools, posts and staff under various managements. During the year, 2016, a Committee was constituted to study and revision of rules issued in G.Os at 2nd and 3rd read above. Based on the report, Government have issued detailed guidelines vide reference Re-Apportionment of Teaching staff in ZP MPP schools.

The D.S.E., A.P., has brought to the notice of Government that the norms issued for positioning of teachers vide G.O. 4th read above were found to be in violation of RTE norms. He further informed that in the State, the schools are functioning as Primary ( Class I to V) , Upper Primary ( Class I to VII) and High schools ( Class VI to X) but not as Elementary ( I to VIII ) and Secondary Schools ( Class IX to XII). The Government have framed certain norms for Primary, Upper Primary and High Schools based on the recommendation made by the Committee and that there is inconsistency between the norms of RTE and the norms framed by Government vide GO 4th read above.

He further informed that during the year 2019-2020, the enrollment in the Government schools increased due to implementation of Ammavodi program and further because of the thrust given by the Government for improvement of the infrastructure facilities in the Government Schools by implementation of Nadu-Nedu Program, the enrollment is further going to increase in 2020-21.

Due to the norms framed vide G.O. 4th read above, a number of schools have become single teacher schools, which is against the norms set in by the Right to Education Act 2009. Further a number of schools were closed during the year 2017 on the ground of uneconomic strength. But the Right to Education Act has no where mentioned the minimum economic strength for a school. As per the norms of the RTE, every school that has a strength up to 60 children shall have two teachers.
