Jayapura, Jubi – The Jayapura City Department of Education plans to pay professional stipends to elementary school teachers in the middle of October, its head said.
“A total of 466 eligible teachers is still waiting their professional stipends to be paid,” the department head, Robert Betaubun, told Jubi on Thursday afternoon (9/10).
The delay was due to the slowness of the online basic data entry system, causing the process to be done manually.
Previously, the head of the department’s Junior High school division, Abdul Majid, said 466 out of 1000 certified teachers for both Elementary and Secondary Schools will be receiving their allowances after a delay of three months.
“Based on data, the number of certified teachers is fewer than 1000 including 71 retired and 10 teachers who had moved to other regions,” he said. (Sindung Sukoco/Tina)
