The commencing and lapsing year imply that the form three class of the given year are the first and last to study the particular book respectively. The books for the period 2022-2026 have a running foot note on every page stating, “approved by KICD 2021 edition” and “kimeidhinishwa na KICD toleo la 2021” for English and Kiswahili respectively. All the new set books have a security tag on the cover which when scratched will reveal a sixteen (16) digit pin number. When the pin number is sent by sms to 22776 you will receive a message confirming whether the copy is genuine or pirated. This is an important security measure aimed at ensuring that schools/parents/students have genuine copies with correct content. By a copy of this circular, all County Directors of Education are required to ensure that all Sub-County Directors of Education forward this circular to all schools within their jurisdiction as soon as possible.
