RELATIONSHIP OF TEACHERS WITH ADMINISTRATORS, COLLEAGUES, STUDENTS AND GUARDIANS

1. Teachers and Administrators
As employees teachers should
 a) discharge their professional responsibilities according to existing rules, and at the same time they may undertake the responsibility to initiate moves and conduct movements through professional organizations for change of any existing rule detrimental to professional interest;
 b) conduct professional business through proper channels;
 c) refrain from undertaking any gainful employment or commitment which is likely to interfere with their professional responsibilities or which may impair their standing with students, their associations and/or the community;
d) co-operate in the formulation of policies of the institutions by accepting various offices and discharge responsibilities which such offices may demand; e) co-operate through their organization in the formulation of policies of the institution and accept offices;
 f) co-operate with the authorities for the betterment of institutions keeping in view the interest and in conformity with dignity of the profession;

 (1) service there under has been performed
 (2) the contract has been terminated by mutual consent; or
 (3) the contract has otherwise been legally terminated;

i) refrain from availing themselves of leave expect on unavoidable grounds and as far as practicable with prior intimation, keeping in view their particular responsibility for completion of academic schedules.

 a) treat other members of the profession in the same manner as they themselves wish to be treated;
 b) speak respectfully of other teachers and render assistance for professional betterment;
c) refrain from lodging secret complaints against colleagues to higher authorities;
d) refrain from raising questions of castes, creed, religion, race or sex in their relationship with their colleagues or trying to use the same for improvement of their prospects.

h) make themselves available to the students even beyond their class hours and help and guide students without consideration of remuneration or reward;
 i) aid students to develop an understanding of our national heritage and national goals and
 j) refrain from inciting students against other students, against colleagues or administration. (This however should not interfere with the rights of teachers to freely express any difference on principle in seminars, meetings or other places where students also may be present.)

a) try see through teacher‘s bodies and organizations that institutions maintain contact with the guardians of their students, send reports of their performances to the guardians whenever necessary and meet the guardians in meetings covered for the purpose for mutual exchange of ideas and for the benefit of the institution.
