TSC Staffing Of Administration As Per CBE In Primary, Secondary Schools

Teachers Service Commission, TSC, has a laid down framework that guides the distribution of administrative posts in a given institution.

Each school must have at least one head of the institution. National schools and some extra county schools have two deputy principals.

Schools that fall in other categories have one deputy principal.

In March this year TSC announced that it will reorganise placement of heads and deputies in mixed schools. This move will ensure that gender mainstreaming and equity is achieved.

See the guidelines below on the numbers of administrators that each school category should be having.
