All the RJDSEs and DEOs are hereby informed that curricular and examination  reforms have been initiated in the State. Vide reference 1 cited, orders have been issued  by the Government for the implementation of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation  (CCE) and assessing curricular and co-curricular activities from classes I to VIII in all  schools i.e. both government and private recognized. All the textbooks have been  developed reflecting the CCE procedures i.e. projects, activities, experiments etc. Vide  reference 2 cited, orders have been issued on examination reforms and ban on the use of  guides and guide type workbooks in schools and implementation of co-curricular activities  as a part of school academic calendar. Vide reference 3 cited, orders have been issued  that all the schools under private management shall invariably follow the State  curriculum, textbooks and examination procedures without which the school recognition  will be cancelled. In this regard, the DEOs are expected to monitor the above academic  issues so as to improve the quality of education in schools.  Following are certain instructions in the implementation of new  curriculum, textbooks and CCE procedures.
1. Private management schools using privately published textbooks which
do not support CCE and child centered curriculum.  Vide reference 3 cited, all the schools under private management shall follow the  curriculum, syllabus and textbooks developed by State Government. Under RTE, it is  mandatory that all the schools shall follow the curriculum, textbooks and CCE developed  by State Academic Authority i.e. SCERT.
However, most of the private schools do not use Government textbooks especially
at Primary Level. The textbooks from private publishers are not as per State syllabus and
do not reflect CCE procedures. These textbooks do not support activity based, child
centered and participatory methods of curriculum implementation. Further, the privately
published textbooks costs more and cause huge financial burden on the parents.
Therefore, all the DEOs are informed to issues instructions in turn to all
the Correspondents and Head Masters (HMs) of privately recognized schools to
follow textbooks published by Govt. of Telangana at Primary and Upper
Primary Level. They are further requested to monitor the same with Dy.EOs,
MEOs and other monitoring officers. If schools do not follows State curriculum,
textbooks and CCE, the school recognition shall be cancelled. Further, the DEOs are requested to take indent on the requirement of
textbooks for the children studying in private schools i.e. payment books and
furnish to Director of School Education (and mark a copy to Director, Govt.
Textbook Press) before 17th May, 2015 so as to give the requirement to the
Director, Govt. Textbook Press to make available textbooks on payment in the
market before reopening of schools.
2. Using of guides and guide type study material
Vide reference 2 cited, the Government have issued orders on examination
reforms focusing on creative self expression by the children. The questions are analytical
in nature for which children have to think, reason and apply while answering. The
National Curriculum Framework (NCF)-2005 and State Curriculum Framework (SCF)-2011
recommended to do away with rote methods i.e. memorization of answers. Vide
reference 2 cited, orders have been issued banning the use of guides in all types of
schools.  However, the schools and teachers are encouraging to use guides and study  materials to memorize the answers. In certain schools it is found that the teachers  themselves inviting publishers of the guides to sell in the schools. In some of the schools  students informed that their teachers suggested to purchase guides and use in home  work.  The use of guides reduces teachers work and most of the time children are  engaged in copying answers from guide books. This is against to the educational  philosophy and practices. Use of guides reduces the teacher responsibility in teaching the   concepts and develop understanding and comprehension.  Purchasing the guides/ workbooks/ study material which basically provides  answers to the analytical and reasoning/ application type of questions given under every  lesson or unit. This not only makes children to keep away from critical thinking, analysis,  reasoning but simply make them memorize mechanically without any meaning making.  These guides/ workbooks increases the physical load of school bags. Children attempts
home work duly copying answers to various type of exercises from the guides without  thinking and comprehending the concepts.
 READING  Rc 419 CCE Implementation in All Private Schools in Telangana
Therefore, all the DEOs are hereby instructed to issue instructions in  turn to all the school Head Masters i.e. both government and private schools  on not use guides and guide type workbooks with readymade answers to the  questions given in the exercise part under every unit/ lesson. The children are  expected to write answers to the questions given in the exercises under every  unit/ lesson on their own without copying from textbooks/ guides. The DEOs  and other field officers shall monitor this so as to improve the learning and  focus on conceptual understanding during classroom transaction.  The Head Masters and concerned monitoring officers will be responsible  if guides are being found with the children and use them for copying the  exercise part. Serious action will be initiated against such persons and schools.
3. Reducing the load of school bag  The load of school bag is estimated in some of the Districts and it weighs about  10 to 12 Kgs at Primary and 15 to 17 Kgs at High School. This will have severe physical  effect on growing children. Their vertebral column may be damage at young age and the
bulk load itself cause fear and anxiety among the children. The load is because the children bring textbooks, guides, home work notebooks,  rough work notebooks etc. to the classroom every day. Further, the load is because of  carrying other than the textbooks i.e. guides, general knowledge books and other such  material imposed by private schools. In some private schools, it is found that for English  the school management prescribes English textbook, English grammar book, English
spoken language book, English hand writing notebook at Primary and Upper Primary  Level. Similarly, such type of additional books for Hindi language textbooks also being  used.  Therefore, all the DEOs are hereby informed that necessary further
instructions may be issued in this regard. The DEOs also requested to focus on  this issue.
4. Implementation of co-curricular activities i.e. Art & Cultural Education,  Value Education & Life Skills, Work & Computer Education, Health &  Physical Education.  Vide reference 1 cited, Government have issued orders for the implementation of  co-curricular activities and also assess under CCE. The co-curricular activities are creative  and value added subjects supports for the holistic development of the children’s  personality and supports development of human creative faculties. The SCERT developed  class-wise syllabus and Handbooks on co-curricular subjects and provided to schools  under RMSA and SSA. These activities are not being taken seriously and the focus is on  regular school subjects. Therefore, all the DEOs are requested to focus on this and  monitor effective implementation and assessment of co-curricular activities in all schools
under the management of both government and private.
5. Identification and Selection of District Resource Persons in Primary and
High School subjects.
Detailed instructions have been issued vide proceedings of Director of School  Education, Rc. No. 419/D/C&T/TSCERT/2015, Dated: 02.05.2015 requesting the DEOs for
