According to The Standard, there are 700, 000 vacancies in sub-county and approximately 100, 000 in private schools.
This comes as a relief for parents whose school transfer requests were rejected since they could not change their initial form one placement since these schools were not included in the NEMIS portal.
The following categories of schools can now be accessed from the Ministry of Education’s official website by interested parents: few extra county schools, a few county schools, and a good number of sub-county and private schools.
According to a circular released by the Education, PS Belio Kipsang addressed to regional directors, all schools have been uploaded into the NEMIS system. Therefore, parents who requested to have their children transferred from one school to another should download the letters from the MOE website ahead of 2020 form one admissions next week.
