The goal of this study was to establish the effect of monitoring of teachers’ records on teachers’ academic performance in public secondary schools in Turkana Central Sub-County, Kenya. The research employed mixed procedures of qualitative and quantitative techniques. The target population for the study was 8 principals, 48 Heads of Departments (HODs), and one Sub-County Quality Assurance and Standards Officer (QASO). Thus, the total population for the study was 57 respondents. Statistical Packages for Social Sciences (SPSS) Version 23.0 was used to analyze the data. The findings indicated that professional records were monitored monthly by the respective principals. The frequency of monitoring teachers’ professional documents was not enough and weekly monitoring was preferred. The findings further indicated that schemes of work and lesson plans were not frequently updated due to factors such as poor monitoring and too much workload. The study recommended that more training be conducted with on monitoring and evaluation of academic records and processes; that there be delegation of monitoring assignments to other teachers such as deputy principals; and that all the monitoring documentation be regularly updated on weekly basis, with particular emphasis on schemes of work and lesson plans.
