TSC Teachers to Request Leave of Absence Online
TSC Teachers to Request Leave of Absence Online. The Teachers Service Commission has always put up a lot of effort to encourage teachers to stay in the classroom.
To ensure that teacher absences are controlled and regulated, the commission has established rules and regulations more frequently. According to the commission, teachers must always be present at school throughout the school day, whether or not they are on duty.
In response to this, the tsc has launched a new effort to reduce teacher absences. Teachers must now submit their requests for leaves of absence online, per the commission’s mandate. The commission has more than 300,000 teachers listed in its database. The committee’s goal is to affirm.
Government policy has made education essentially free in our nation today. In order to successfully convey knowledge, the government routinely gives teaching resources to every public school in the nation.
In order to assist students in this way, the committee stresses on how crucial it is for educators to be accessible to them at all times. In a recent circular sent by the commission to all school administrators and curriculum support employees, all tutors are requested to make sure that teacher absences are fully prevented.
Recently, there has been conflict between the teachers service commission and the ministry of education. Recently, the commission cancelled a few activities that the ministry of education had planned for teachers. The commission reiterates that these situations frequently require teachers to miss class, which has a negative impact on the children.
Every TSC educator who wishes to take a leave of absence must now submit an official online leave request to the TSC headquarters. When instructors wished to skip class in the past, they had to ask the principal for permission and write it in the official school diary.
Primary school principals will now need written approval from the local TSC sub county director before missing work. If monies from the school are to be used someplace other than the school’s grounds, they must also obtain the sub county director’s approval.
In order to lower teacher absenteeism, the committee further demanded that all activities involving teacher participation take place over the weekends and during school breaks. At conferences hosted by the Kenya Secondary Schools Heads Association and Kenya Primary School Heads Association, the aforementioned directive must be adhered to.
The conferences and meetings of all TSC-registered teachers who are Saccos, or elected union officials, are scheduled for the weekends and during school breaks. It is against the law for teachers to perform any tasks during scheduled teaching and learning periods that go beyond their core responsibilities.
Local plans must be made to ensure that classes are not missed in the absence of the instructor who has been granted permission online. A list of all untaught classes is also requested by the commission.
