TSC Plans To Punish e-mail activation defaulters
With the deadline for TSC email activation fast approaching, the teachers’ service commission has revealed a raft of measures that it could take against teachers who will not have activated their emails by the deadline.
The activity, which required all teachers to acquire an outlook365 account from TSC, began three months ago. TSC has maintained that it will not extend the deadline by even a second, and that the defaulters will have to be punished for gross insubordination, which is against the TSC code of conduct and regulations.
A section of TSC county officers have already sent principles messages, warning them of severity that will be associated by failure to activate emails.
“Kindly remind your teachers to ensure they activate their emails by 30th to avoid landing in problems. The commissioners have met and resolved that defaulters will face dire consequences,” reads a message sent to a principal by a TSC deputy county director.
Upon resumption for third term, the teachers will have to show cause why they declined to take part in the email activation exercise. TSC has talked of such teachers committing an insubordination offence. This might attract interdiction, pay cuts, removal from payroll among other punishments.
The victims will also not be liable for transfers, promotions and appointments since these will rely on the data in the email accounts yet theirs will be inactive.
