KUWAIT CITY, May 18: In response to concerns raised by the Teachers Association regarding restrictions on school staff’s presence after official working hours, Hessa Al-Mutawa, the Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Public Education at the Ministry of Education, has announced a policy change allowing teachers and administrative staff to remain in schools as necessary.

The decision follows observations made by the Teachers Association regarding the bulletin that previously prohibited the presence of educational and administrative staff after official working hours, citing its adverse impact on school operations. Hamad Al-Houli, the President of the Association, commended the cooperation of Undersecretary Al-Mutawa for her swift response to the concerns raised. Undersecretary Al-Mutawa issued a letter dated May 14, permitting staff presence in schools after official hours based on actual work requirements, subject to coordination and approval from the educational district for implementation.

According to regulatory guidelines and to ensure security and safety, testing, monitoring, and administrative tasks are deemed essential work needs, necessitating the presence of staff after official hours. It is mandated that the responsible personnel and their supervisors are aware of staff presence based on job hierarchy, and they are required to report any staff or student presence after official hours to the educational district for record-keeping purposes.
