After over 2,000 teachers in high and senior secondary government schools in the state were mandatorily retired on September 30 and many of these schools were facing shortage of teachers, the School Education Department has asked all district education officers (DEOs) to assign the job to teachers from the adjoining middle schools.

All high and senior secondary schools in the state were re-opened from Classes IX to XII this month. However, primary and elementary schools are still closed for offline classes. As there was no teacher for some subjects in many high and senior secondary schools after the mandatorily retirement of over 2,000 teachers on September 30, as a stopgap-arrangement, the department today asked the DEOs to put middle school teachers on duty in high and senior secondary schools.

In March this year, the state government had ended the policy of optional extension in service period after retirement/superannuation. A large number of teachers in government schools were working on one or two-year extension after their superannuation in the state.

As the elementary schools are still closed, it is better to take the services of many of these teachers for high and senior secondary schools for the time being, reads a letter of the Secretary, School Education Department, to all DEOs (Secondary) and heads of high and senior secondary government schools.
