Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has issued new guidelines to teachers on anticipated reopening of schools.
The teachers’ employer on Wednesday September 30, 2020 announced that the reporting of teachers still stands as it had earlier been communicated.
The new guidelines have come barely two days after President Uhuru Kenyatta stated that he would only reopen schools after the Education and Health Ministries guarantee the safety of learners.
TSC boss Nancy Macharia stated that all teachers should report to their work stations, then the clock-in system be operationalised.
The school heads were further directed to have staff meetings to discuss the implementation of strategies on the resumption of teaching and learning.
Teachers will be tasked with developing timetables, preparation of schemes of work, working on the Teacher Performance Appraisal and Development (TPAD), and updating the Teachers Management Information System (TMIS).
Teachers will also be required to come up with psycho-social support systems to strengthen the guidance and counselling committee.
TSC further directed the tutors to develop strategies to ensure observance of the Ministry of Health protocols.
All schools are also instructed to establish a Covid-19 disaster management committee.
TSC added that it would conduct visits to schools to ensure compliance to the measures.
Earlier on, TSC stated that teachers who did not report at the set date would face dire consequences.
