Newly Employed JSS Teachers’ Salary Delay For The Following Reasons
Newly Employed JSS Teachers’ Salary Delay For The Following Reasons. Primary school teachers who were recently relocated to junior secondary schools to teach Grade 7 students may need more time to adjust to their new salaries.
The first cohorts, who applied by February 6, 2023, were deployed to junior secondary schools after their documents were verified by their Sub County Directors, who were handed lists of shortlisted instructors.
Deployment (posting) letters were given to the teachers, indicating that they will begin at job group C2.
In a circular dated February 17, 2023, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) reported that it had received 10,833 requests for deployment to junior secondary schools from competent primary school teachers.
Speed up the deployment of teachers’ salary Dr. Nancy Macharia, CEO of TSC, gave explicit instructions to Sub County Directors and Primary Headteachers about the release and receipt of teachers.
The County Directors must start publishing on the Posting, Entry/ Exit Reports Module to the Sub-County as soon as the instructors are assigned to JSS. The teachers would be posted to JSS by the Sub-County Director, according to TSC CEO Nancy Macharia in the circular.
She instructed Heads of Institution (HOI) releasing the teachers to exit them as soon as possible by submitting Exit Reports so that the Head of Institution receiving them can submit the Entrance Report.
She stated that all of these procedures must be carried out online using the Posting, Entry/Exit Reports Module because the Commission no longer accepts or handles paper copy casualties.
The Head of Institution must withdraw the teacher from elementary school and file an entry report for the JSS in cases where the teacher is kept at the same post, according to Macharia.

Unfortunately, it has come to light that some teachers’ applications to teach in junior secondary schools were granted without the necessary paperwork.
According to specifics, some teachers were deployed despite not meeting the TSC qualifications to teach in junior secondary.
As a result, the Commission is physically reviewing the paperwork for the teachers who have been deployed at its headquarters in Upper Hill, Nairobi.
The Commission will verify the authenticity of the application-related papers to make sure there are no frauds.
When it comes to disciplining individuals who are found to be at fault, the TSC code of regulations for instructors shall be adhered to.
Due to the large number of JSS teachers that were dispatched, they are likely to be involved in the scuffle. Their pay will be delayed even longer.
