Mr. Tripathi answered the various questions put by the Principals:
1. The course of Class X, XII: CBSE has been in discussion with MHRD and NCERT concerning various concerns over course completion. The course may be shortened but it was too early to comment. He suggested that the schools should start teaching in serial order of chapters and not take up a course from in between
2. Provisional Affiliation and Extension:
Mr. Tripathi confirmed that the same has been extended for the lockdown period and may also be extended further if need be
3. Closure of schools
“ The Schools must follow the guidelines given by their State Government on this issue”
4. Upgradation of schools from Secondary to Sr Sec: the schools need to wait for confirmation and not start classes without the same
5. Introduction of the new subject: no permission is required from CBSE and elective/ skill subjects may be started by the school
Since Mr. Tripathi was facing some network issues, the gap was efficiently utilized by Mrs. Jyoti Arora to take up other school-related matters with the attendees. Mrs. Anita Sharma, Principal SD public School, Pitampura was kind enough to explain the nuances of the new subject “ Applied Mathematics” Her inputs were useful in ascertaining applicability of the subject for students in choosing their choice of studies at the college level.
Mr. Tripathi also extended that this subject has been introduced to various universities and CBSE has already requested that the students should not face marks deduction for the same.
However, Applied Maths is best suited for Commerce and Humanities students
Mr. Tripathi eloquently put forward the need for school leaders to be sensitive with students in these unique yet upsetting times and to guide them towards positivity

BEHAVIOURAL ASSESSMENT IS THE KEY TO BECOME A BETTER TEACHER!
FairGaze media Network has organised a teachers training at S D Public School, Pitampura, the most important aspect which we found and which should be seen in today’s era and which also should be taught to the teachers is Behavioural Assessment. An effective teacher’s training must counter some basic problems, when we speak about behavioural assessment, identifying students with stress behaviour which can be caused due to surroundings or any other factor, health issues, nowadays many students suffer with anxiety and peer pressure.
We study an array of effects that comes with various types of education and trainings on the productivity of teachers while promoting student achievement. Earlier studies on the subject have now been hampered by inadequate and inappropriate measures of teachers training. It is found that middle school and elementary teacher’s productivity increases with the increase in experience. The largest and also highest gains from experience occur in the first few years, but studies have also found continuous gains in first five years of career of a teacher.
