The Department of Education (DepEd) Schools Division Office (SDO) of Palawan presented on Friday the various preparations provincial schools have been doing to prepare for the opening of classes on September 13.
Public schools from the municipalities showcased their preparations for non-face-to-face learning methods this coming school year, such as module printing, radio-based learning, and online learning, in the Kamustahan sa MIMAROPA online series on September 3.
According to Schools Division Superintendent (SDS) Roger Capa, who answered viewers’ questions during the program, while teachers have been working hard to provide learning needs amidst the pandemic, parents have also played a big role. He added that the DepEd is still counting on parents and other stakeholders, such as the private sector, to aid in students’ learning this coming school year.
“Tayo ay nalulugod sa ating mga magulang at stakeholders. Hindi naging alintana ang banta ng COVID-19 sa pagbibigay nila ng serbisyo,” he said.
The Kamustahan sa MIMAROPA program is an online video series organized by the regional DepEd that aims to disseminate important information for schools amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Each SDO from other regions is given a chance to present during the series.
Aside from the schools’ preparedness, the schools also presented various training, best practices in implementing the DepEd’s Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) and the Bridging Program. The LCP was launched in early 2020 during the beginning of the pandemic, which detailed the use of modules and online learning.
