More than one million candidates who sat the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) can now know the secondary schools they are slated to join in January 2024.
Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, while presiding over the 2024 Form One placement at Lenana School on Monday, said the placements were done according to candidate choices and other criteria.
“Some students were placed in schools of equivalent standing outside their counties. This includes those from counties with inadequate capacity,” Machogu stated.
This will see candidates move to secondary schools within their counties or outside.
The CS further assured that government is committed to seeing a full transition to secondary schools, stating that the fees for day and boarding schools will remain unchanged.
“Gov’t upholds its commitment to providing free day secondary education which includes allocation for tuition and operation expenses.
“The fees charged in secondary schools will remain unchanged in 2024. Schools will continue to receive funds based on accurate enrolment data,” said Machogu.
Additionally, the CS urged parents and guardians of the candidates to download placement letters directly, and not through middlemen.
