Daily School attendance by all teachers will now be monitored by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), in real time. This is after the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, announced that it will roll out the Biometric registration of all teachers in May this year. Once completed, the Commission shall then install Biometric gadgets in schools for teachers to clock in and out. Currently, teachers manually sign in and out of school.

The electronic registration of teachers will therefore expose teachers who miss lessons without written permissions. This enlisting of teachers is also expected to help the Commission to balance the teaching staff since it will unravel the imbalances across all public schools.

“We shall ensure optimal utilization of teachers and also balance areas that we shall feel are not well covered,” said Ibrahim Mumim (the TSC Director in charge of Administrative Services) on Thursday; during a stakeholders’ consultative meeting in Nairobi.

The meeting was attended, by among others, the Kenya National Union of teachers (KNUT) boss Wilson Sossion who supported these new developments.

“We shall support this program in totality… we are happy that the TSC is engaging us at the beginning.. It is only a mad man who can refuse and oppose a program of this nature that is supposed to help in planning,” said Sossion.

This comes even as the Commission gives a raft of measures to curb teachers’ absenteeism. Read full details here; TSC in a move to ensure all lessons are attended by teachers

The electronic capture of the tutors will help the TSC to plan for the exit and replacement of aging teachers.

TEACHERS TO HANDLE MORE LESSONS

The Teachers Service Commission, TSC, is in a new bid to ensure maximum utilization of all teachers is achieved. Reports from the Electronic registration of all teachers that is expected to kick off in May, 2020, will help the Commission realize this object. Teachers should handle a minimum of 32 lessons of 40 minutes per week. This would translate to some 22 hours per week in line with the TSC staffing norms. The internationally recommended class size is 40 students per teacher.
