RE: ASSESSMENT OF SCHOOLS READINESS FOR RE-OPENING
As you are aware, re-opening of Educational Institutions within the context of Covid-19 requires adequate preparations by the Education Sector, line Ministries, County Governments, Institution Managers, Administrators, Teachers, Parents and Religious Organizations to work in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health.
In view of the above, the Ministry of Education intends to carry out risk assessment for suitability and readiness to re-open Institutions. The focus will be on space, safety, health of learners, teachers and non-teaching staff. Schools will be required to avail required data and information as per the risk assessment checklist attached. The Teams will visit both Secondary and Primary Schools within the County.
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the monitoring exercise that will begin from 23August, 2020 as per the attached schedule. The teams from the Ministry will report to your offices for directions and collaboration.
All field officers are asked to work closely with Public and Private Basic education institutions to ensure compliance with the Health and Safety protocols.
