The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has threatened to take severe punitive measures to teachers who decline to avail themselves to schools by the end of today, 28th September 2020.
Monday 28th was set by TSC and the Ministry of Education as the deadline for teachers reporting.
TSC boss Dr Nancy Macharia warned on 21st that teachers who won't report by the end of today will face dire consequences.
The Education Sub-County Directors (SDEs) have notified teachers that disregarding Teachers Service Commission's directive to report today amounts to absconding duty which is a punishable offence by the TSC rules and regulations.
"Teachers will not be allowed to ask for a day off, they must all report today and on subsequent days for the tasks directed by the Ministry of Education to run smoothly," read part of a memo.
Absconding of duty has been dealt with before by removal of teachers from payrolls. Most of those who have faced such disciplinary action are those found engaging in demonstrations and strikes.
Teachers are expected to prepare measures set by the ministry of education for the school reopening. Regional directors, Sub-county Directors of Education and county Directors of education will coordinate reopening preparations upon teachers arrival.
President Kenyatta is expected to conduct a Covid-19 National conference today that will chart the way forward for the nation after six months of coronavirus pandemic. The fate of students whose right to education has been affected by the pandemic will also be assessed.
