The government has extended the registration of learners on the National Education Management Information System to March 31.
Today was the initial deadline for school heads to complete the exercise.
Speaking on Tuesday at Parklands Boys High School, Nairobi, Education PS Belio Kipsang said so far 3.8 million out of 10 million students have been registered on the system.
He said the ministry of Education will collaborate with the Interior ministry to speed up the issuance of birth certificates to learners.
Learners require birth certificates to be able to generate a Unique Personal Identifiers on the platform.
The UPIs will replace admission numbers and will be used to track learners’ progress at all levels of education.
