    Thank you mihiracharya for your valuable information. But I want to know more information in this regard like 1. what will happen if any member of the academic council other than the Assistant H.M resigns from the council? 2. What is the procedure of resignation and to whom the resignation letter to be submitted? 3. If there is any rule when the H.M and Asst. H.M refuse to take any regular teaching class by rejecting the decision of the council and what should be done in this situation? Again thanks a lot.

    1) In case of any causal vacancy, it shall be filled by the election at a meeting convened for the purpose and the H.M. shall preside over the meeting.( this causal vacancy may occurred by RESIGNATION).
    2) Resignation should be submitted to the President (H.M.) of the council.
    3) If there is a genuine and emergency cause to take the respective classes (number of classes) due to urgent work load of the H.M./A.H.M should be overcome by the provisional class routine. But if it is a practice,then it may bring to the notice of the M.C and then to the A.I.Schools/ D.I. of Schools.
    *** Dear friend,
    It is a great problem to many of our schools running in our state. There is nothing to do as an asstt. teacher.
    Thank you.

    Thanks a lot @ Mihiracharya. What you said is very true but we can protest this kind of unjust activities of H.M.

    You will find in "Rules for Management of Recognised Non-Government Institution (Aided and Unaided)1969. It has been modified from time to time. You may find it in Head master Manual.
    Thank you.

    Who is to write the minutes of the Academic Council meetings?

    Normally the AHM, the secretary of the Academic Council. If there is no AHM then it may be by the H.M, the President of the academic council. But in manual no such rule is mention.
  11. Is it against rules that there is a librarian but he is not a member of the academic council? Only teachers including the headmaster are amongst the members of the council.

    There is no bar to select a member of academic council as librarian. A librarian may be selected as a member of academic council.
