Top level officers from the Teachers Service Commission, TSC, are set to visit schools to monitor implementation of the new Appraisal system. Schools are expected to have started implementing the new Teacher Performance Appraisal and Development, TPAD 2. and Performance Contracting, PC, for heads and Principals.
“TSC Commissioners will be visiting to monitor TPAD/PC implementation in schools next week 24- 28th February 2020 (this week), kindly ensure that all the teachers in your school have prepared, used, updated and maintained all the professional documents as per the teacher’s check list,” reads a memo sent to Principals.
“As a head of institution check that all documents that are expected to be endorsed on weekly basis are complied to. Also prepare your documents as per the head of institution check list,” adds the memo.
According to the 2020 TPAD/ PC Calendar from TSC teachers should have, by now, downloaded Performance Contracting documents from the TSC Website.
Other tasks that ought to have been accomplished include: setting targets, signing of Performance Contracting Forms (By heads and Principals) and creating the new TPAD 2 accounts. Weekly lesson attendance reports are also supposed to have been filed online among other periodically executable tasks.
School heads are also to display the TPAD cycle activities and the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) results for at least five years. Also to be displayed on the school’s noticeboard are Lesson observation schedules and KCSE 2020 targets.

The Clock in/out register for teachers should be up to date. This register shows the daily reporting and departure times for all teachers. Other records to be in order include: school log book, lesson attendance summaries, 2020 TPAD target setting meeting minutes and staff/ students registers.
The Commission, this year, rolled out the new system to solve inadequacies experienced with the old TPAD system. The new system is more detailed and advanced.
