TS Half day schools from March 15, School timings, time table, periods for 2017
***************************TS Half day schools from March 15:
The Telangana School Education Department has decided to restrict school timings to half-a-day from March 15. In the wake of the demand of the school teachers association to reduce the school hours owing to soaring temperature in various parts of the State, the Department of School Education conceded the demand on Friday evening in a meeting convened by Deputy Chief Minister incharge of School Education Kadiyam Srihari along with representatives of the government teachers association at the Secretariat. As per the revised timings, classes for six subjects will be held from 8 am to 12.30 pm. Students will be provided with an interval of 20 minutes from 10 to 10.20 am. Though the new academic year is scheduled to be held from March 21 to April 23.
So, all government and private schools in Telangana State would work half day from March 15th, 2017. The government declared half day schools on 15/3/2016 from in view of summer setting in. Schools will function from 8 AM to 12.30 PM. In this regard the Director of School Education instruct to run the schools for half - a - day from 8.00 A.M. to 12.30 PM due to summer from 15.03 2016 onwards, and further instructed to run the schools which are constituted as S.S.C Examination centre from 1.00 P.M to 5.00 P.M.
Yielding to the demands by the government teachers’ associations, Telangana government on Friday has decided to continue half-day schools from 8 am to 12.30 pm. A decision to this effect was taken during a meeting convened by Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Kadiyam Srihari with the representatives of the Government Teachers’ Associations at the Secretariat here on 10/3/2016.
“Though the academic year begins from March 21, students will be taught reading, writing and arithmetic skills, but syllabus of the class will not commence. A final decision to start syllabus of the next academic year from March 21 has been taken by Chief Minister,” according to Teachers Unions. Although majority of teachers unions have agreed to academic calendar on the lines of Central Board of Secondary Education(CBSE) and to do away with the half-day schools while drafting academic calendar due to harsh weather conditions prevailing, the teachers demanded that government roll back full-day schools system.

Teachers oppose full-day schools in summer 2017: Demand that the government revert to old school timings and half-day school The educational institutions and teachers’ unions have vehemently opposed the State government’s decision to conduct classes full-day school in the peak summer following the advancement of academic calendar by the State Education Department.
Since last few years, the Education Department is advancing the academic calendar and instructing all schools to conduct the classes from March last week. The Department had directed all the schools, both government and private, to start new academic calendar for the year 2017-18 from March 21 and conduct classes up to April 22, the last working day before summer holidays.
No seriousness: Even as the temperature is soaring in February, the Education Department have directed the primary schools to function from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., upper primary schools from 9 a.m. to 4.15 p.m. and high schools from 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The change in school timings from the 8.45 a.m. to 3.45 p.m. in the urban areas and 9.30 a.m. to 4.45 p.m. in the rural areas to new timings 9. 30 a.m. to 5 p.m. since last two years was a wrong decision, a government school headmaster said. With the change of timings from 9.30 a.m. to 5 p.m., the classes were beginning only at 10 a.m. and after lunch there is no seriousness in classes, he said and demanded that the government should revert to old timings and run half-day school in the summer.
Health issues: Democratic Teachers Federation (DTF) State president Raghushankar Reddy said that they had given representations to the government to reintroduce old school timings for effective functioning and benefit of student community. Telangana Rashtra Teachers Federation (TRTF) district president M. Prathap Reddy said that the government should only run half-day schools in view of soaring temperatures.
Full-day schools during summer would adversely affect the students’ health as there is a possibility of sunstroke and there is shortage of drinking water and power supply in many schools, he added. He favoured return to old school timings of 8.45 a.m. to 3.45 p.m. (urban) and 9.30 a.m. to 4.45 p.m. (rural).
Teachers seriously appose the Govt act of annulment of single session schools and bring forward academic year from Jun12th to March 21st. By this unconsidered decision students may lose their 1 month academic time due to majority of teachers discharges their duties as invigilators and examiners in March and April months. So, Teachers demand the Govt to reconsider on this precipitated decision.
