In the meantime, Hector Stephenson, CEO for the OEC, has welcomed the new SBA-management guidelines, noting that they provide schools, which are not up to standard, with the methodology to improve their systems while highlighting where best practices already exist.

According to OEC executive director, Hector Stephenson, the original certificate may be accepted for employment as long as organizations and institutions are satisfied that the certificate is tamper free.
Where they suspect that this is not so, they should refer the matter to the OEC, he said. Stephenson said that a number of cases have been prosecuted in the courts resulting in the perpetrators being imprisoned or fined.

Three days later, Hector Stephenson, executive director of the OEC and local registrar of CXC, responded.
"Thanks for your correspondence. Last Thursday, Stephenson confirmed that the allegations of plagiarism and SBA tampering at the Westmoreland-based schools had surfaced in May. He said he had discussions with the principals of the two implicated institutions. "Both of them denied that there were irregularities. I didn't do any further investigations at that point," said Stephenson, even though a single SBA had not been examined. DIDN'T NOTICE EMAIL According to the local CXC registrar, he asked the complainant for additional information to substantiate the claim, but did not receive this. However, when our news team pointed to an email containing one of the SBAs sent to Stephenson by the whistle-blower, he accepted that he had the evidence needed to proceed with the probe, but said he did not know that he had received the email. "I will definitely look at it. I will complete the investigation into the complaint that was made. The investigation was stalled because of a lack of information. Now that we have the information, we will proceed," Stephenson pledged. The local registrar also said the SBAs will now be examined and the students will be interviewed. Stephenson assured that the probe into the allegations of impropriety will be taken to "its logical end". However, he stressed that complaints of this nature must be handled with care because the reputation of students, the principal, and the school are at risk. PRINCIPALS UNCOVERED NOTHING The principals of the implicated schools have already denied that anything untoward took place at the institutions. Rayon Simpson, principal of Belmont Academy, told The Sunday Gleaner that after discussions with Stephenson earlier this year, he thought the allegations of impropriety died a natural death.

Hector Stephenson The Caribbean Examinations Council's local registrar in Jamaica does not believe that the recent disqualification of 70 Jamaica College (JC) sixth-form students by the regional body for plagiarism has damaged the reputation of the country's school system. However, Hector Stephenson, who is also executive director of the Overseas Examinations Commission (OEC), admitted to The Sunday Gleaner that the sordid affair has propelled the OEC to take a greater look at the system. "No, I wouldn't say it has damaged Jamaica's reputation, (but) we are working with the Ministry of Education to ensure that we strengthen the quality assurance systems in schools," he said. "CXC will not second-guess SBAs that come before them. I really don't think it will tarnish Jamaica's reputation in the marketplace or in the region. I think we have done exceptionally well with the administration of our exams over the decades," added Stephenson. Stephenson explained that the "problem with SBAs is that we come in at the back end" and "a lot of it depends on the integrity of the teacher". However, the local registrar said the buck ultimately stops with principals. "School administrators have a responsibility to put systems in place to ensure that the teachers comply with the SBA regulations put in place by the examining body," Stephenson opined.

Holness, flanked by senior education officials including Grace McLean, chief education officer, and Hector Stephenson, executive director of the Overseas Examination Commission (OEC), said a substitute plan for the supervising of students would only be considered if the strike action went beyond the stated two days.
Stephenson pointed out that Caribbean Examinations Council examinations, which include both the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination and the Caribbean Secondary Examination Certificate, begin in earnest tomorrow. "From where we are sitting, most of the exams next week can be handled by the supervisors and the assistants and there would be a few cases where they need one or two persons, and those persons they should be able to get quite easily if the teachers were not able to assist," explained Stephenson. He stressed that principals play a critical role in ensuring that school facilities are made available to the invigilators and their assistants.
