TSC Mulls Over Appointments And Promotions Of Directors Of Studies, DoS In Schools.
TSC plans to reward most Directors of Studies DOS’s in the schools saying that this has been the most important person who can determine the potential prosperity of the schools in the educational journey.
The programs initiated by the DoS can either bring success or failure in school, thus something that gives them more attention for the promotion they need.
Soon , their appointments will be confirmed by the employment body of teachers.
Specific reports from TSC suggest that the positions in schools have never been official and for this reason the TSC is in recognition of their hard work by appreciating them in a good way.
While addressing regional and county directors of education, the TSC CEO Dr. Nancy Macharia recognized Dos work, and encouraged them to work harder to achieve more.
However, TSC CEO highlighted that the issue of automatic promotion of DoS of schools to higher positions has been a debate between teachers’ unions and TSC for a long time.
According to Macharo, a clear document is required for the inclusion of DOS in automatic promotion after appointment to the Finance Minister and the salaries and Remuneration Commission, SRC, who should budget funds for additional important roles of Dos.
She also said that their appointments would be made on the basis of certain factors with clearly attached verifiable evidence.
Reports also indicate that school heads will have to send two names along with relevant documents to deputy county education directors, so that the selection process can take place, names to be submitted under transparency to ensure fairness in the decision making process.
Proposed teachers are required to keep a clear record of the results posted in the last three years in KCSE and KCPE with an average score of 3.5 (D+) and above. Any indication of plagiarism will automatically result in disqualification and potentially disqualification.
She further added that the appointment will be made by the officers of the Commission through a rigorous review process since it is regulated in such a way that the Commission decides individually and will be done at the nearest sub-county TSC offices.
