The Delhi Government will conduct a second mega parent-teacher meeting (PTM) on October 15 in the government-run schools. “Delhi government schools to hold mega Parent-Teacher Meet part two,” the government said on its official Twitter handle.

The first parent-teacher meeting was held on July 30 and the government had announced that the meeting would be held twice a year. Unlike last year, this time, parents would be given the report cards of students as well. “All the parents have been informed through SMS or social media about the PTM,” the tweet said.

“Parents would be briefed about all the aspects of a student’s result,” it added.

Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, earlier said that the government has sanctioned separate budget to organise PTMs in nearly 1,000 schools run by it.

The focus of the PTMs is to encourage one-to-one communication between parents and teachers. The government also said that it is ensuring one-to-one help to the students till November 14.

“One-on-one help for the students to ensure ‘Every Child Can Read’ till 14th November,” the government announced on twitter. During the PTM, the government will apprise the parents of the initiatives undertaken by the government to improve the quality of education in its schools.

In the first PTM, parents of 16 lakh students were invited to attend the meeting.
