Primary and Secondary School teachers are required to report to their respective working stations from Monday, September 28 to prepare for the eventual re-opening.


Education Response Committee chaired by Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) boss Sara Ruto suggests that schools re-open in October.


But, Education CS George Magoha added that the proposals by the committee will be presented before a more comprehensive committee after which, the official date for school’s re-opening will be provided.


“It is not for me to give the date for the re-opening, I will table this report before a larger committee for a discussion on the actual date for the resumption of schooling,” Prof. Magoha said.


The strewed re-opening will see candidates get back to school early while expecting the rest back in a few weeks.


Standard Seven, Standard Eight, Form Three and Form Four students will be supposed to report first.


Upon resumption of classes, non-candidates will experience a crash-learning programme steered at capping the second term syllabus before December.

The CS added that it may be necessary to have some classes outside the school buildings, to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.


The Education Ministry additional said teachers will be overseen on how to finish the syllabus before the national exams slated for April 2021.


Under the new proposals, the second term which was interrupted by the pandemic will commence in October and end in November and the third term will begin in January then completed in March.
