THE BURDEN AWAITING TEACHERS AND PARENTS ON MONDAY TO ENSURE OVER 3.5 MILLION LEARNERS ARE SAFE

THE BURDEN AWAITING TEACHERS AND PARENTS ON MONDAY TO ENSURE OVER 3.5 MILLION LEARNERS ARE SAFE

In a new plan unveiled by the Ministry of Education on Friday ahead of school opening, the government wants parents to work closely with teachers when learning resumes.

Teachers will be required to be the first responders in cases of emergencies and also offer psychosocial support to learners. This will also include counselling learners who may have lost loved ones during the heavy rains that pounded, causing deaths.

The teachers will also be required to keep updated attendance lists, trace absent children and give feedback to the ministry through the regional directors.

Also, the head teachers will be required to ensure lost time is recovered through structured lessons as it emerged that no term extensions will be allowed.

And for parents, the ministry directs that a close collaborative approach be adopted to ensure safety of learners.

This will include an enhanced role in identifying emerging issues and enforcing schools’ attendance.

“Schools should engage with parents, guardians and learners to keep them updated on any emerging issues,” the circular reads.

The elaborate schools reopening plan is contained in a circular released Friday by Basic Education PS Belio Kipsang
