Secondary Schools are categorised in Kenya as either public or private. The Kenya government sponsors public schools by providing teaching staff through the Teachers Service Commission. The fee paid by students in public schools is regulated by the government and is used to buy teaching and learning resources. It is also used to buy boarding facilities and pay workers who assist in the provision of services to the students. Public schools are further categorised into:

National schools which admit its students from all districts and municipalities in the republic of Kenya. 

Provincial schools which admit students from the province in which the school is situated. 

District schools, which draw all its students from the district it is situated. 

Private schools are owned and managed by individuals or organisations that determine their own admission criteria. Private schools help to increase admission space in secondary schools as public schools cannot admit all that join form one. 

Public and Private schools can be boarding or day schools. Secondary schools can be boys or girls or mixed schools. KauwiSecondary School -  is a Mixed Day School which therefore admits students from the district-Kitui West.

All Public schools in Kenya are managed by a Board of Governors (BOG) appointed by the Minister of Education Science and Technology. The member that are considered for this role must have shown their potential to contribute in rendering voluntary service towards the promotion and management of education. The purpose is to  mould the youth to be patriotic and useful to self and the society at large. This in effect means that the school should be an institution that produces physically fit persons of sound mind, moral integrity and refined character.

The BOG consists of a Chairman, Secretary and the members. The BOG elects from itself an executive committee that has delegated powers to manage the school on behalf of the Board of Governors. The Principal of the school is delegated to administer the school on daily basis as the Secretary of the Board.

It should be noted that all the transactions by either the executive committee or the Secretary are endorsed by the Board of Governors. Kauwi Day has had a committed Board that has played its role very well. Its core functions include:

  • Planning and development of physical facilities for the purpose of learning and teaching in the school. 
  • Sourcing and management of school finances which includes receiving all fees, grants from public funds, donations and any other income to the school. The Board is required to prepare approve and implement both the recurrent and development budgets of the school. 
  • Organise, direct, supervise and monitor approved projects and programmes in the school. 
  • Recruit, appoint and discipline the non-teaching staff in the school. The Teachers Service Commission seconds the teaching staff to the Board for service in the school. 
  • Discipline of teachers and students under the general guidance of the TSC and the Director of Education respectively. 
  • Regulate the admission of students subject to the general direction of the Director of Education. 
  • The Board of Governors is also guided by;

The education Act chapter 211 of the Laws of Kenya (Revised 1980). 

The Teachers Service Commission Act Chapter 212 (1967) of the laws of Kenya. 

The Teachers Service Commission code of regulations for Teachers (Revised 1986) 

The code of management for secondary schools and teachers training college approved by the minister for education, (Order of 1969). 

The Kenya National Examination Council Act Chapter 225A(Revised). 

Any agreement entered between the previous boards and a recognised trade union that represents the interests of the non-teaching staff in the school. 

Another body that also manages the affairs of the school is the Parents and Teachers Association (PTA). This is a welfare body that brings together the teaching staff and the parents of the school. This body has office bearers that include the Chairman, Secretary, who is the Principal of the school, the Treasurer. This body generally provides the funds approved by the BOG for the development of the school. It has 17 members drawn from Parents and Teachers. The PTA at Kauwi Day has done tremendous work in the following areas,

  • Bringing closer the staff and the parents of the school. 
  • Providing a forum for discussion on all aspects concerning the school and its activities. 
  • Providing opportunity for exchange of views between the staff and parents. 
  • Organising social activities with an aim of bringing staff, parents and the BOG closer together. 
  • Providing, through its fund raising efforts, for equipment, scholarships, improvements and development to the school.         Both BOG and PTA through their office bearers and membership have steered the school academic standards to a level that is admirable and this is seen through the consistent improvement of results of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education Examinations.                                                                                          The PTA have always played an important role in two areas;
  • Participating in the discussions concerning the annual school budget. The receive the recommendations of the BOG and discus them. They then approve it, which in effect approves the school fees to be charged every year. 
  • Participating in the discussions concerning the identification of development projects and prioritisation. They then participate in the implementation of the projects as members of the projects and procurements committees. 

The school infrustructure/development comitee is responsible for identification of school development needs and over seing the spending of infrustructural funds throug the delegation by BOG.
