The ministry of education has lately been on the move to prepare schools for reopening. Several oral and written directives have been given to schools administrators concerning the preparation of their schools to receive learners back. The ministry is now set to embark on the assessment tour of the schools across the country.According to the circular given out by the ministry education's Director General Mr. Elyas Abdi on 21st of August 2020, the exercise will kick of on 23rd of August 2020 and will see a team of ministry officials dispatched to all schools to assess their levels of preparedness. "The ministry of Education intends to carry risk assessment for suitability and readiness to reopen institutions." The circular read in part. It continued by saying that schools will be expected to avail required data and information as per the risk assessment checklist.
This comes at a point when reports indicate that WHO together with other international Organizations have mounted pressure on the government to look for ways of opening schools soon. The Assessors are divided into two visitation teams and they will follow a visitation schedule.
Group one visitation schedule will commence on 23rd August 2020 and end on 28th August 2020. During this time, the officials will visit schools in Nyanza, North Rift, Central Rift, Lower Eastern and Taita Taveta and Coast.
On the other hand, group two assessment will start on 30th August 2020 and end on 4th September 2020. They will visit schools in Nairobi, Central, Western, Upper Eastern, South Rift and Nyamira and North Eastern. The assessors will visit both primary and secondary schools across the country.
