From April 1 attendance in all Delhi government school could be marked on e-tablets as part of the zero paperwork programme. It was stated by Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia, here on Thursday, after a meeting with the Deputy Directors of Education (DDEs) and other senior officials. “The DDEs will ensure that each school teacher is provided with digital tablets,” he said and added, no teacher should be without a tablet.
“I want zero paperwork. Section-wise attendance should be marked by teachers. We are aiming to build robust software for the attendance system so that every DDE gets a notification about students’ attendance in each section of each school within their zones. It would be implemented from April 1,” he said.
Stating that the DDEs should be aware of the number of students attending classes, Mr Sisodia said they should get a notification by 9 a.m. every day about the number of students in classes. Examination results also have to be uploaded and maintained online.
