The Ministry of Education has extended Form One reporting deadline for one week to Friday, January 18, in a bid to ensure 100% transition.
Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang' further directed school heads to receive new students until then in order to give schools ample time to upload the freshers' particulars into National Education Management Information System (NEMIS).

"The Ministry of Education will therefore be able to harmonise all the data and hence have a single source of data. It will also be able to secure factual and accurate information for proper planning and budget allocation," he said in the circular.
The 2019 Form One students were expected to report to their respective schools between January 7 and January 11, 2019.
By the end of the exercise, several schools across the country had recorded relatively low turn out as most students and parents were caught unawares by digital enrollment.
As was previously reported by JUST40DAYS Education Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed warned obtaining admission letter directly from the principals instead of downloading from the system would lead to serious repercussions for both the student and the head-teacher involved.
"Direct issuance of admission letters to students (or their parents) is illegal. The principals must admit students only through NEMIS. No school should violate the guidelines provided by the Ministry, the CS warned.
According to the Amina, the online system will help the government to easily account for every learner as all the admission data would be accessed from a central point.
