Ministry of education (MoE) has directed school principals to verify the number of Board of Management (BoM) teachers in each secondary school.
Through a circular dated 10th August, Education Permanent Secretary Dr. Belio Kipsang has directed county education director to verify the number of BoM teachers in schools prior to closure of schools earlier this year.
“The ministry would like to verify the teachers under Board of Management in the schools listed. You are required to confirm their employment status as 15th March, 2020 and relay that information to this office by Wednesday, 12th August, 2020,” stated Belio Kipsang.
Among the details required are the county in which the school is located, name of the school and number of BoM teachers.
Details of each teacher including name and TSC Number will be required. The principal will also be required to add few remarks about each teacher.
It is increasingly clear that this move will iron out issues that had prompted the government reverse funds that were meant to pay staff of schools employed by board of management.
BoM teachers have gone for months without pay since corona virus pandemic grounded to halt activities in education sector.
The government has however put its foot forward in seeing to it that BoM teachers are paid.
Last week on Thursday the government updated the National Education Management Information System (Nemis) indicated that 3,725 shillings per student and 1 shilling per student had been released into the operations account and tuition accounts of schools respectively.
However, in a surprise move the government on Friday reversed funds that had been send to schools to cater for salaries of personnel employed by board of management(BoM).
