TO: ALL TSC REGIONAL DIRECTORS
STAFF BALANCING ACROSS SCHOOLS, SUB-COUNTIES AND COUNTIES
The Commission has a primary mandate to assign teachers employed for service to public schools.
This entails the exercise of related functions of transfer and posting of teachers to the public institutions where their services are required.
As you are aware, the process of staffing of schools is guided by ‘staffing norms’ whose key objective is to achieve the optimal utilization of teachers and in so doing, reduce disparities in teacher distribution.
Despite numerous efforts by the Commission to address teacher shortages across the Country, the situation is always compounded by irregular teacher distribution thereby, creating an imbalance that affects delivery of service in the teaching sector.
Further, the teacher staffing imbalance continues to limit the initiative toward the equitable distribution of the teaching Resource. If unchecked, this will adversely impact learning outcomes in our learning Institutions.
For that reason, you are required to coordinate with the County Directors in your respective Regions and undertake staff/ teacher rationalization with a view to ensure an equitable re-distribution across the schools in your Regions. In doing so, you will consider the criteria provided in Appendix 10.
The exercise should commence immediately. A detailed report on reviewed school staffing status should be submitted to the Commission in the format provided at Appendix Il via email address; email@example.com by 9th May, 2022.
Henceforth, all newly recruited teachers’ posting and transfer will be to schools and areas with identified higher teacher shortage.
