Junior secondary placement formula To Be Availed on Friday

Parents, teachers and education stakeholders will on Friday get information regarding the formula in which Grade 6 learners will be placed in junior secondary schools.

The Ministry of Education, lead by prof George Magoha will release the placement formula to teachers, parents and learners.

Education Cabinet Secretary George Magoha maintained that the guidelines will be used to place close to 1.2 million learners, who are currently in Grade 6.

Magoha was speaking at Kariobangi North Girls where he laid the ground for the construction of JSS classrooms on Monday.

“On Friday, that is July 22, I will give blow-by-blow the manner in which the placement will be done,” Magoha said.

On the same day, Magoha will also submit a list of private schools and stand-alone private secondary schools that are CBC compliant.

“The most basic requirement for primary schools is a laboratory because there is no functional secondary school without it,” he said.

Magoha confirmed that both performance and affirmative action will be applied in the placement, just as it is it is always the case for Form one students.

This will be in consideration of students from far-flung areas, slum schools, arid, and semi-arid areas.

Mogoha further reinforced the need to have learners in JSS placed in day schools.

“We are encouraging people to send children to day schools so that parents stay with their children,” Magoha said.

On teachers’ training, he said Grade 7 teachers have already trained but will be upgraded gradually.

“The reason Grade 7 teachers have not been upgraded is because they are helping us to normalise in January,” he said.

Magoha clarified that the upgrade will be implemented at the right time through school-based programmes.

“When that time comes the program will ensure they are further trained and adopted into the CBC curriculum,” he said.

Once Grade 6 learners complete a set of assessments, Magoha said they will be ready for the final assessment.

Kenya Primary School Education Assessment will be administered from November 28.

“Parents know that their children have already been assessed twice. Each of these exams has 30 per cent; the final exam will give us 100 per cent,” he said.

A sample of answer sheets for the KPSEA seen by the Star has revealed that there are multiple choices.

Students are expected to fill in the school code number, assessment number, candidate name and school.

From four multiple choices, they are instructed to cross one of the options to indicate the answer.

The pioneer cohort of CBC, currently in Grade 6, is expected to join junior secondary next year.

According to the ministry, 2.57 million students will be enrolled for Grade 7 and Form 1 during the double intake in January.
