TSC Directs Registered Teachers To Declare Wealth Starting This Date
Section 26 & 27 of the Public Officer Ethics Act (POEA) requires all public officers to declare their Income, Assets and Liabilities (IAL). All teachers are thus expected to fill an online Declaration form.
MODE OF DECLARATION
The Commission in 2017 Introduced an online Declaration Portal. This is the portal to be used for the declarations. Declarations can be made following the steps outlined in the DIALS Manual.
ACCESSING ONLINE PORTAL
The Declaration Form can be accessed on the Teachers Online Portal https://tsconline.tsc.go.ke/site/index Please note that you may also access this portal through your computer, laptop, a smart phone too.
A do-it-yourself instruction manual has also been provided and is available on the TSC website http://www.teachersonline.go.ke under the Downloads Icon, next to the Declaration link. One may also make the Declaration process by following the prompts in the form after logging in.
MONITORING OF THE DECLARATION
All Heads of Institutions are required to monitor the progress of the Declarations in their respective institutions and report all cases of non-Compliance as reflected in line with Part B in the Wealth Declaration Instruction Manual.
(a) All teachers in employment of TSC are required to declare their Income, Assets & Liabilities. These include teachers on:
>Leave (Of whatever kind)

(b). Any teacher in TSC employment who fails to submit a Declaration or gives false or misleading information is liable to a fine of Kshs. 1,000,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding (1) one year or both upon conviction.
(c). It is mandatory for all teachers to have a personal working email address for setting, accessing and resetting individual passwords for the Declaration as applicable. A copy of the submitted Declaration will automatically be sent to the teacher’s email.
