The cabinet secretary Professor George Magoha, now has provided parents and students in grade six with fresh recommendations for choosing junior secondary institutions.
As per the new rules, the parents should choose day schools close to their houses for their children who will be entering junior secondary school, and those who choose private education should choose junior secondary schools that are private.
The Junior Secondary School Selection Guidelines
Each student will be required to select schools from these five categories:
- 2 National schools
- 2 Regional schools.
- 2 county schools
- 4 sub county schools
- 2 Two private schools of their choice .
CS Magoha has indicated that the portal has been opened by the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) for parents to select schools where their children will be admitted after Grade Six, and the portal will remain active between August 15 and August 30.
He further added that all Grade Six learners will be offered placement in existing registered public and private secondary schools.
He also said public secondary schools which share a compound with a public primary school will utilise available classrooms as additional learning spaces.
In addition, all registered private secondary schools will be available for learners whose parents will pay the fees charged by the private institutions.
