Nawanshahr: Taking note of the complaints regarding the shortage of teachers being lodged by the various panchayats, the state education department has decided to introduce cluster system to ensure judicious use of the available teaching faculty within the designated clusters. Under it, the principals of the Government Senior Secondary Schools would be notified as " Cluster Incharge".
 
The list of the schools falling within the cluster shall be decided by the DPI(SE) on the recommendation of the District Education Officers. The Cluster Incharge Principal shall be authorised to make the adjustments within the cluster to depute teachers from the schools having surplus teachers to the schools facing scarcity of teachers. However, the arrangement would be temporary till the end of the academic session or till the posts are filled through rationalisation, recruitment, promotion etc. 
 
The Cluster Incharge Principal would have to send the proposal directly to the Nodal Officer in the office of the DPI for seeking approval. In case, the Cluster Incharge Principals are still not able to fulfil the deficiency of the teachers in their respective clusters, then the concerned DEO would identify some teachers from any school where the teachers are either surplus or he can take out some teachers on administrative grounds. The DEO would prepare a proposal and send the same to the Nodal Officer for seeking approval from the DPI(SE).
