TSC Sends A Strong Warning To All Principals. The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) will shortly close the online Teacher Performance and Development (TPAD) platform.
This week’s substantial system troubles have made it challenging for teachers to use it effectively.
But this morning, when our team checked it, they found that it had stabilized, was now taking data, and was operating as it should.
Teachers are required to enter their second-term evaluation ratings before the system shuts down on the due date.
The Commission also produced instructions at the same time for schools where the Deputy Heads of Institutions (DHOI) had trouble observing lessons and rating teachers.
The TSC has given the school leaders instructions on how to give their deputies the authority they need to evaluate teachers in an efficient manner.
TSC Sends A Strong Warning To All Principals
NOTE: THE TPAD IS MISSING DHOI RIGHTS
If a school’s deputy head teacher, by chance, has lost the ability to evaluate the other teachers, the HOI should:
(i) Access the TMIS system.
(ii). Visit the teachers’ profile page (page 4 of 7).
(iii) Change the instructor to deputy data in the present deputy data.
(iv) State the date of current duty (the day the teacher was appointed to the deputy post).
(v). To save the changes, click the Save button.
According to the Commission, using TPAD, an open appraisal system, teachers in elementary and secondary schools will be able to evaluate their own work and begin their professional growth.
The appraisal and development system is designed to offer instructors more control over their work so they can bring back the teaching profession to its previous glory and regain the public’s respect and support.
TSC uses TPAD to promote its instructors. To be taken into account during promotion interviews, teachers must download and submit proof of their TPAD compliance.
The Commission may reprimand teachers who fail to complete the evaluation and lesson observations.
