Chiefs and assistant chiefs from Meru County were on Monday directed to monitor the ongoing Form One admissions and issue a comprehensive report in two weeks’ time.

The directive that was issued by Meru County Commissioner Wilfred Nyagwanga, is aimed at ensuring the government’s effort of attaining complete transition to secondary schools is achieved.

“The chiefs are required to trace every child who sat KCPE exam and establish which school they are joining."

“We will also counter check with high schools to ensure they have reported."

“In cases where children who should be in school are engaged in labour, we have tasked the children’s department to deal with those involved,” remarked Nyagwanga.

The leaders are expected to oversee the transition of all the more than 34,000 candidates who sat for the KCPE examinations last year.

Transfer of schools through Nemis

Education PS Belio Kipsang had earlier announced that the Form one students could now apply for school transfers through the Ministry of Education National Education Management Information System (Nemis).

Kipsang stated that the move was to be facilitated by principals of schools through logging into the system where they can access the student’s profile and proceed to process admission as well as a change to a different school.

"The details of the students will appear indicating that the student is selected to join the school," remarked Kipsang.

Parents had raised concerns over the placement of students where some have been posted to remote counties.
