Teacher’s Guide Code
In this institute teachers have to maintain a high standard in the matter of dress, behavior and delivery of lessons to students. The objective is to present a healthy image to students who try to learn everything from their teachers, be it knowledge, dress or manners.
Although no uniform is prescribed for the teachers, they are expected to be dressed decently. They should not wear showy and gorgeous dresses which do not behave a matured person. Scanty or excessively tight cloths are not advisable. Clothes should look sober and comfortable according to the season.
Jewellery and gems
Teachers should avoid wearing elaborate jewellery and gems. They may wear just ring or bangle.
Scents and perfume
These should be avoided and if used at all, they should not be used to be too conspicuous or peculiar.
Manners and habits
Teachers should always observe politeness, sweetness, regularity and punctuality. They should not smoke anywhere in the campus. They should not eat in the open but only in the canteen or in the room prescribed for them.
A very sympathetic behavior for the students is expected of teachers. They should not talk loudly and even while delivering a lecture, they should maintain a moderate tone, neither too high, nor too low. They should take care to explain everything to students in sufficient detail and listen to their problems, if any, with great patience. They may be strict, if necessary, to maintain discipline. But, corporal punishment for any reasons is not permissible. Also, a student should preferably be warned rather than punished and if punished at all, it should not be done too frequently. Otherwise, he will have no longer the fear of punishment, and will continue to be careless or mischievous.
Students should not be penalized in the annual assessment for any non-study matter. Moreover, minor lapses may be ignored.
In case of a serious or continuous violation of discipline by a student the matter may be reported to the principal, who may forward it, if necessary, to the president. Certainly, if any students come with a complaint against a teacher, Principal may, if he deems it proper, order an enquiry.
When a teacher wants leave, he must send a formal application to the principal, explaining why he wants this leave.
