Teachers Head Count: The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has ordered a fresh head count of teachers before the implementation of the final pay raise under the 2017-2021 collective bargaining agreement (CBA).

According to a letter from the TSC chief executive officer Nancy Macharia, the teachers to undergo the recount include headteachers, their deputies and senior teachers.

The head count order comes after it emerged that wrong information was presented by county education directors to the TSC.

Ms. Macharia directed that the country directors provide accurate information by June 30.

“In a circular dated June 3, Ms Macharia said before the implementation of the current CBA on July 1, 2017, county directors were instructed to validate the data for institutional administrators who were on duty as at June 30, 2017,” a report that appeared in a local daily said.

“It has been established that some of you provided inaccurate and misleading data leading to erroneous conversion. Classroom teachers were converted to grades exclusively reserved for institutional administrators, teachers serving as deputy or senior teachers were wrongly captured as head teachers while in other instances, staffing levels in terms of required administrators in a school exceeded the optimum establishment contrary to the established norms,” the circular by Ms. Macharia said.

She added that the database for institutional administrators at the head office was found to be inaccurate and unreliable, a finding that affected the operation of the TSC’s payroll management, selection, appointment, and deployment of new administrators. “Consequently, you are hereby directed to critically analyse the said data and re-confirm all institutional administrators serving in your respective counties per school and college,” said Ms. Macharia.
