The Schools Division Office (SDO) of the Department of Education (DepEd) in Palawan has submitted a proposal to its central office for the establishment of two sub-offices in the northern and southern parts of the province, with the goal of bringing the division closer to educators.
 
Schools Division Superintendent Roger Capa said if approved, each sub-office will have a budget of P39 million.
 
“Plano pa lang ‘yon. Ang aming unang hakbang pa lamang actually ay proposal pa lang namin sa central office. Na-submit na namin, nasa kanila na ang approval na magtayo ng sub-office sa norte at south. Nais natin [na] ilapit ang pamunuan at division office sa ating mga guro sa malalayong bayan. Para hindi na sila magbiyahe sa division office,” Capa said.
 
“Na-submit na namin ang proposal sa DepEd central at nasa kanila na ang approval. At kapag na-approve na ‘yon, kung magkaroon man ng plano na hatiin, at least ‘yong sub-office na ‘yon ay pwede na maging division office,” he added.
 
The project plan is included in DepEd’s budget for 2022, according to Capa.
 
He said DepEd Palawan performed an examination for the proposed site in Brooke’s Point for the sub-office in southern Palawan last week, but the town’s Sanggunian Bayan has yet to approve it. There was no mention of a specific location for the northern portion.
 
Meanwhile, Capa urged school administrators, teachers, and the Palawan division to preserve cordial relationships, emphasizing that disagreements should be resolved first at the school or district office level.
 
“At iyan ay magsisimula sa aming mga leader, kami ang unang magpapakita ng respeto, unang magpapakita ng paggalang, pagsunod sa ating mga pinapatupad na guidelines. Upang maging maayos ang ating samahan sa buong division. Sa mga nakalipas na buwan ay paunti-unti na ang mga reklamo na nakakarating sa atin, bumababa na,” he stated.
