At least 7,162 teachers have been listed for incomplete and pending evaluation. The online TPAD was opened on 26 July 2021 for the teachers to start taking their Term One Appraisal. TSC had set the initial deadline as 1st October 2021.

However, after several complaints from teachers over the poor TPAD system, which  was refusing to open and allow the data entry, the commission extended the deadline by a week.

Soon after the closure of the online TPAD portal, the Commission compiled a list of pending and incomplete assessments for each sub county which was sent to all TSC Deputy County Directors.

 

School administrators had their time increased  to ensure that all TPADs submitted were countersigned and completed accordingly.

 

 

If you fall under the listed number of teachers who did not complete the term one TPAD filling, then prepare to receive show cause letter any time from today.

 

 

TPAD is an indispensable tool for teachers employed by TSC. According to the commission, teachers who fail to conduct their TPAD assessment may face various disciplinary actions.

 

 

Teachers may be issued ‘show cause’ letters or may even be given other disciplinary measures. Teachers who miss to attend TPAD also miss when TSC promotional vacancies are advertised.

 

TSC has made it mandatory for teachers applying for promotion to obtain TPAD evidence during the application process and interview.

County TSC officials are under pressure from teachers to ensure maximum compliance. Last month, the Kisumu TSC County Director was  directed  to give a show-cause letters to all teachers who did not comply with the TPAD in the county.

 

Example of show cause letter to  Kisumu TSC county Director 

 

 

According to Ibrahim Rugut, Kisumu was ranked 41st out of 47 counties in the TPAD’s three-term report. Rugut termed the ranking as unacceptable and vowed to penalize those who will be  non-compliance in Term One TPAD.

 

 

“The purpose of this letter is to ask you to explain why disciplinary action cannot be taken against you for this low performance at TPAD.

Your response should reach your immediate supervisor by 8 October 2021,” Rugut told Said in a letter addressed to the sub- county director, CSO, principal and headmaster.

 

 

However questions are being raised by teachers whether the TPAD tool is effective and reflects the true strengths and weaknesses of teachers.

 

There have been claims that the TPAD data submitted by the teachers is untrue. There are also claims that teachers are unhappy with the use of TPAD tools to promote them.

 

 

By the end of the last term, TSC officials from Upper Hill visited at least twenty-six counties to examine TPAD implementation in schools. During the visits, the commission stressed that teachers should attach evidence to their online TPAD submissions.

 

 

NB.As we have started term 3 , let all teachers try to follow the TPAD calendar of activities provided above so as to avoid  being caught out with time hence prevent the pending and incomplete TPADs. Through this, all teachers will evade facing any  disciplinary  actions from the employer.

Have a successful term.
