Kibuku district council has passed a by-law to start paying teachers in government aided schools basing on the number of days taught.
The move follows the increasing cases of abseetism and late coming among teachers in the district.
The District Education Officer, Christopher Wamika says teachers’ pay will now be based on actual performance.
He was speaking at a consultative meeting at Buseta Primary School with Head teachers and politicians.
The meeting was called to address the district’s poor academic performance in national examinations.
Wamika adds that the Head teachers will be tasked to do roll call every day to ensure all teachers attend as required.
