Rachuonyo South DCC David Kiprop has launched sub county implementation coordination committee to oversee rollout of Competence Based Curriculum (CBC) classrooms in secondary schools.
During the launch, the DCC urged members of the committee to move with speed so that they deliver within the stipulated October 2021- April 2022 timelines.
“There are 31 schools targeted and the schools will share a total of 41 classrooms distributed according to needs,” he announced.
In the sub county, the 41 classrooms are distributed as follows: Agoro Sare High School – 5 classrooms, Agoro Sare mixed, Wire Mixed, Nyagowa Lutheran, Saye Mixed, Nyalenda and Ombek ELCK each- 2 classrooms and the rest have one classroom each.
The meeting held brought together stakeholders from the Ministry of Interior and Coordination, procurement department, finance, education and information department.
The DCC who is the Chairperson of the Committee called for proper coordination through the multi-agency team to ensure success of the CBC infrastructure programme which he termed, one of the flagship projects of the Government and President Uhuru Kenyatta legacy project.
He said the Government through the Ministry of Education introduced the CBC in 2019 and infrastructural development in schools aim to see 100% transition to junior secondary school.
During Mashujaa Day celebrations this year, the President announced the roll-out saying the Ministries of Interior and Coordination, Education and the National Treasury were to establish a framework for the construction of the classrooms to provide additional space for one million new students joining junior secondary.
The Government is constructing 11, 600 classrooms nationwide estimated to cost Sh8.1 billion in readiness for the smooth transition to junior secondary under CBC in 2023.
