2.Discussions during TaRL review meetings with State Academic Monitoring (SAMO) team of SPD,SSA, Pratham,SCERT, etc.
    The attention of the District Educational Officers and the District  Project Officers of SSA of Ananthapuramu, Kurnool and Vizianagaram Districts is invited to the subject cited. As you are aware the Teaching at Right Level (TaRL) Programme is being implemented for Classes 3rd to 5th since last 2 to 3 years. The services of the Cluster Academic Coordinators (CACs) are engaged for monitoring  and mentoring the implementation of the TaRL programme for  the past  3  years  in respect of Ananthapuramu District and for the Past 2 years in respect of  Kurnool and Vizianagaram Districts.

    From the experience so far,it is reported that the schools from where the CACs have been deputed for TaRL monitoring, are badly affected in terms of falling enrolment, fall in proper instructional days, lower learning levels of the students, etc. No substtute Academic Instructors were provided in such schools,in majority of the cases. This has adversely affected the overall school performance.

There are also complaints from the public and the parents that some of the
CACs are neither attending to their own schools nor properly delivering on their expected roles under TaRL program, Some complaints informed that CACs are in fact found attending to their personal works!

    Further, we are aware that  the TaRL program  is already under
implementat on for over 2-3 years in these 3 districts. There have been several rounds of training to the CACs and to the teachers and constant mentoring was ensured till date. It is expected that the tools and teaching practices that are introduced as part of TaRL program should have been mainstreamed and adapted by all the teachers concerned, by now.

    In the above context, and considering the previous years experience it is
decided to strengthen the existing Monitoring system at various levels through the ME.Os and District Officers to ach eve the expected teaming outcomes and proper implementation of the TaRL programme.

    The following modified guidelines for effect ve imp ementat on of TaRL programme are issued, These may be followed henceforth and the program implementation jointly reviewed by the DEO and PO SSA of the concerned District. Minutes of the District  Review meetings along with action points  and timelines for follow up may be submitted to this office and SPD, SSA office.
