JSS: Schools Faces Fresh Tough Requirements To Be Allowed To Offer CBC For Grade Seven

Beginning on January 9, the Ministry of Education will conduct a national assessment to determine whether students are ready to be admitted into Grade 7.

Up to January 20, the assessment will be administered in all primary schools, both public and private.

The CBC task panel suggested that junior secondary students reside in current primary schools as of December 1, 2022.

According to Basic Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang, ensuring a seamless transition for Grade 6 students into Grade 7 in the current primary schools is the main goal of the assessment.

Kipsang asked ministry stakeholders in a statement to make sure that all public and private primary schools are evaluated in accordance with the standards.

Ensure institutions have met the threshold of 75 per cent and above of the requirements duly registered

The report submitted to the President directed that the ministry should add additional classrooms and a laboratory.

According to the report sent to the President, the ministry needs to build more classrooms and a lab.

Within the upcoming year, laboratories will be built on a priority basis. The report requests that members of Parliament seek to support the additional amenities.

Additionally, the Raphael Munavu-led panel advised against using the summative evaluation to assign students to JSS.

A new announcement from the Ministry is now required in order for schools to offer the JSS curriculum. As soon as the school satisfies the requirements, they are permitted to begin offering the new Grade 7 with the revised Curriculum.

The following are the main requirements, as stated by our source: 1. There should be a minimum of 45 students in each school.
