MANILA, Philippines – Natapos na ngayong araw extension ng enrolment period para sa School Year 2020-2021, ayon sa Department of Education (DepEd).
Sa pagsasara ng enrolment period ngayong Miyerkules, aabot sa 20.2 milyong mag-aaral ang nagpatala para sa darating na pasukan batay sa impormasyon mula sa DepEd.
Sa naturang bilang, 19.1 milyon ang nag-enrol sa mga pampublikong paaralan habang mahigit naman sa isang milyon ang nagpatala sa mga pribadong paaralan.
Ayon sa DepEd, ang kasalukuyang bilang ng enrollees ay katumbas lamang ng 92 percent sa 21.97 milyon na target sana nitong bilang sa darating na pasukan.
Pero para kay DepEd Undersecretary Jess Mateo, mataas pa rin ang bilang na ito kung pagbabatayan ang nararanasang krisis sa bansa na bunsod ng COVID-19.
Aminado rin si Mateo na nasorpresa siya sa bilang ng enrollees lalo’t maraming magulang ang pansamantalang nawalan ng trabaho sa gitna ng pandemya.
“Ibig sabihin lang nito naniniwala ang mga magulang na kailangang ipagpapatuloy ang pag-aaral ng kabataan ng mag-aaral,” ani Mateo.
Sa datos ng kagawaran, wala pang kalahati o nasa 24.3 % ang enrolees ngayong taon sa private schools na mas mabaa kumpara sa datos noong 2019.
Mahigit 300,000 mag-aaral din umano ang lumipat sa public schools.
Samantala, tiniyak naman ng DepEd na kahit natapos na ang enrolment period ay maaari pa rin namang magpatala ang late enrolees basta’t pasok ito sa 80% ng prescribed number of school days.
“Kasi magbubukas tayo sa August 24 so ang ibig sabihin lang n’un p’wede silang mag-late, mag enroll ng first week or second week of September para sa gan’un ma-comply nila yung 80 percent of the calendar days,” ani Mateo. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Dante Amento)
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) is encouraging its eligible personnel to register and get vaccinated for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
This, after the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) approved the inclusion of education frontliners to the higher priority groups from category B1 to A4.
In a statement, Secretary Leonor Briones hopes to start vaccinating the rest of DepEd’s teaching and non-teaching personnel by June 2021 as part of the A4 priority list.
“We would like to encourage all of our personnel to coordinate with their local government units so they can be vaccinated against COVID-19. This will play a huge role in our bid for our learners’ return to school,” she said.
Vaccine recipients are also requested to note their vaccination details, including the registration and the vaccination card for documentation and monitoring purposes within DepEd.
Meanwhile, Briones also advised DepEd personnel to rely on credible and official sources such as the Department of Health (DOH) and LGU websites and social media accounts for accurate information about the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccines, and vaccination program.
“I am encouraging everyone to be proactive in learning about the vaccine and the vaccination program, and to make an informed choice about the matter,” she said. AAC
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) said teachers get to have their turn to be vaccinated against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in June.
DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones reported that more than 790,000 public school teachers and personnel are set to receive the vaccination in June to protect teachers during school enrollment.
“Siguro, mga June ito mag-umpisa. By that time, mag-start na ang enrollment, marami nang activities sa mga eskuwelahan. Kailangan protektado ang mga teacher (It might start around June because, by that time, enrollment and other activities will begin. We need to protect our teachers),” she said.
Briones said teachers and other education personnel will no longer need to register since the department already have a list for the vaccination program for education frontliners.
The Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has previously approved the recommendation of DepEd to include education frontliners in the government’s A4 COVID-19 vaccination priority list from the B1 cluster. AAC
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) expressed its gratitude to the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) for including education frontliners in the A4 priority vaccination group.
In a statement on Friday (April 16), DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones is thankful to the IATF for approving their recommendation to include teachers and other education frontliners.
“As reiterated by the President, vaccination is a key component of any roadmap to the resumption of face-to-face classes. With the adjustment of vaccine prioritization (from B1 to A4) for basic education frontliners, we can speed up the rollout of vaccines among our teachers and non-teaching staff,” DepEd said.
