Guideline for Head Teachers

The guidelines for headteachers are aimed at providing a strategy for identifying the students’ learning needs and effectively dealing with their learning difficulties.The guidelines are targeted at elimination of early-school-drop-outs because of learning difficulties, as well.
Headteachers are key communication agents to bring all stakeholders (teachers, parents, school psychologists etc.) together on the issue of the students with learning difficulties. Thus, the guidelines will also help headteachers establish an efficient strategy of dealing with the students who have learning difficulties. They will also help to identify students’ needs and develop a better education strategy with dropout recovery.
