School Principals Ordered to Clean Their Nemis Database Due to Over-Enrolment of Ghost Students

The Ministry of Education has been on the forefront to ensure that all schoos countrywide achieve the 100% transition from primary school. The students are then captured in the school database, after being admitted just to enhance utmost transparency and accountability in the schools as far as the enrollment is concerned. The information captured will generate the UPIs for learners, and moreso help the ministry to determine the appropriate planning on the capitation for both free primary and secondary education.

According to reports, most schools' current online enrollment do not match the actual number of learners in schools. Some learners who dropped out of school and those on transfer are still in the previous school's database. According to exclusive reports from the ministry of education, there is a mandatory procedure for releasing a learner who might be on transfer, something that most schools are not doing at all.

An exclusive reliable source from the ministry of education has revealed that during the launch of the latest report on school enrollment, the most schools have an exaggerated number of students, and the majority are those who left school either because of transfer to another school, dropouts willingly or due to lack of fees and even death. And therefore the school systems are never updated occasionally in order to maintain a genuine record.

Exceptionally, the ministry has gone ahead and ordered all school heads to lias with their ICT Champions in their schools to erase, clean and thereafter update the school database on the NEMIS portal so that none of the learners is erroneously budgeted for when he/she is not a regular student of that school. Furthermore, the updated records are supposed to be downloaded and printed, and copies be taken to the Sub-County director of education for documentation and filing. This should be done to keep a well informed record that could be always be available when need arises.
