Heads of Government Basic and Senior High Schools will sign their performance contracts in the coming weeks. This follows a successful signing of performance contract for Regional Directors of Education at a Accra today. The performance contracts set out some deliverables and bench marks for Heads of Schools and Unit Heads to meet in the achievement of the overall goals of the Education Service. Non-performance could lead to consequences if the resources are made available to unit heads or school heads. Following this successful signing of contracts by Regional Directors, District Directors will be the next in line to sign their contracts. After the District Directors, Heads of Schools (both Basic and SHS) will also sign their Performance Contracts to commit to delivery at optimum levels in the discharge of their duties.
In a Facebook post, the Ghana Education Service on its official page stated
“16 Regional Directors of Education signed Performance Contract with the
Director- General, Professor Kwasi Opoku Amankwa.
It is expected that the Regional Directors will sign same with the District Directors and Heads of Senior High Schools.
The District Directors will also sign the Performance Contract with all Heads of Basic Schools in their District.
Present at the brief ceremony were, the Deputy Director General in Charge of Quality and Access, Dr. Kwabena Bempah Tandoh, Head of the Public Relations Unit, Ms Cassandra Twum Ampofo and Mr. Robert Intseful , Budget Officer”.
Performance contacts have become synonymous with the public service with various agencies and state owned enterprises expected to commit to performing at optimum levels to keep the wheels of the service and for that matter government machinery running.
