DepEd, nangangailangan ng learner support aides para sa darating na pasukan

Robie de Guzman   •   September 28, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Balak ng Department of Education (DepEd) na kumuha ng learner support aides (LSA) na makakatuwang ng mga guro sa pagsasagawa ng learning modalities sa darating na pasukan.

Ayon kay DepEd Undersecretary Jess Mateo, bahagi ng tungkulin ng LSAs ay tumulong sa mga guro sa paggabay sa mga mag-aaral o magulang pagdating sa learning modality. Tutulong din sila sa paghahanda at paghahanda ng mga aralin at pagbabantay sa pag-aaral ng mga estudyante.

“Ang unang-una po is to support the teachers and parents para sa paghahatid ng basic education services doon sa mga learners natin in this new normal. Pangalawa po, ita-tap natin yung potential qualified individuals among households within the community let me emphasize within the community para sa ganun ma-prevent natin yung transmission,” ang pahayag ni Mateo.

Ayon sa DepEd, maaaring mag-apply bilang LSA ang nakatapos sa Senior High School o nakapasok ng dalawang taon sa kolehiyo.

Dapat ay nasa 21 taon hanggang 59 taong gulang at kung maaari ay nakatira sa komunidad na may paaralan.

Prayoridad sa mga kukuning LSA ang mga nag-apply sa DepEd nitong School Year 2020-2021 ngunit hindi nabigyan ng provisional appointment dahil walang available na plantilla teaching item.

Maging ang mga guro sa pribadong paaralan na nawalan ng trabaho dahil sa pansamantalang pagsasara sa gitna ng pandemiya ay maaari ding mag-apply bilang LSA.

Ang learner support aide ay maaaring tumanggap ng buwanang sahod mula P6,000 hanggang P11,000 depende sa minimum daily wage sa kanilang lugar. Ang pondo para rito ay maaaring kunin sa special education fund o maintenance and other operating expenses ng mga paaralan.

Magtatrabaho sila sa ilalim ng anim na buwang job order ngunit maaari naman itong ma-renew.

“Sa usapin naman ng compensation ang tinitignan po natin dito ay nasa halagang P6,000 to P11,000 kasi po ito yung daily minimum daily wage set by the national wage productivity commission, iba-iba po yan,” ani Mateo.

Sa mga interesadong aplikante, maaari silang pumunta o tumawag sa mga Schools Division Office ng DepEd upang magsumite ng requirement para sa selection at assessment process.

Ayon sa DepEd, ang Schools Division Offices na ang bahalang magpasya kung ilang LSA ang kanilang kukunin depende sa pangangailangan. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Dante Amento)

DILG tells LGUs: Endorse mild, asymptomatic COVID-19 patients to Oplan Kalinga facilities

Robie de Guzman   •   September 28, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) on Monday urged local government units (LGU) in Metro Manila to endorse to Oplan Kalinga quarantine facilities mild and asymptomatic novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients that could no longer be accommodated in local isolation centers.

In a statement, DILG Secretary Eduardo Año said there now 4,000 beds available in Oplan Kalinga facilities due to the increase in discharges or recoveries in the previous weeks.

“We urge all Metro Manila LGUs to endorse patients which they can no longer accommodate in their local isolation facilities to endorse them to the Mega TTMFs and Oplan Kalinga Hotels which now has some 4,000 beds available because many have already been discharged,” he said.

Año said this is in compliance with Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) Resolution No. 74 which states that all confirmed mild and asymptomatic COVID-19 patients are required to isolate in government-approved facilities, except those who are vulnerable or have comorbidities as certified by a local health officer.

Also exempted in this rule are confirmed mild and asymptomatic COVID-19 patients in areas where the government-recognized isolation centers are in full capacity.

“Meron tayong mga Mega Quarantine Facilities and 31 COVID hotels na kung saan puwede sila mag-isolate. Importante kasi talaga na mailabas sila sa bahay kasi nakahahawa sa pamilya,” the DILG chief said.

According to DILG spokesperson, Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya, LGUs can coordinate directly with the One Hospital Command Center (OHCC) located at the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) which was created to facilitate a comprehensive and coordinated response to the pandemic by ensuring an efficient health facility referral in Metro Manila.

Malaya said that with the establishment of the OHCC, LGUs and individuals can now easily locate hospitals or isolation facilities near them.

The DILG said the command center is open 24/7 and individuals needing treatment may call the OHCC hotlines at 0927-728-0750, 0927-728-0753, 0927-728-0755, and 0927-728-0798.

Individuals needing assistance from the OHCC may also download the PureForce Citizens App via Google Play Store or App Store, it added.

Facility-based isolation for asymptomatic, mild COVID-19 cases now mandatory

Marje Pelayo   •   September 25, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) is now requiring facility-based isolation for confirmed asymptomatic and mild coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases through IATF Resolution 74.

The new policy however, exempts patients who are considered vulnerable or having comorbidities and their home meets the conditions specified in the Department of Health (DOH) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Joint Administrative Order 2020-0001. 

Likewise, another exception is when the Ligtas COVID-19 Centers within the region are fully occupied and the local government unit does not have sufficient isolation facilities.
