The Department of Education (Deped) has proposed classroom seating arrangements in case face-to-face learning will be implemented for the upcoming school year.
In a post, Deped reiterated there will be no face-to-face learning unless it is safe for students to go out. However, as part of their preparations for the opening of classes, they proposed a seating arrangement that will still adhere to social distancing.
Deped showed layouts for classrooms with armchairs and classrooms with tables and chairs. Both have a 1-meter distance to observe proper social distancing. AAC
The Department of Education (DepEd) has secured the support of the National Telecommunication Commission (NTC) for its television and radio-based education for the upcoming school year.
Based on NTC’s Memorandum Order No. 10-06-2020, radio and television operators are reminded to provide free assistance in broadcasting educational materials and instructions.
Deped Usec. Alain del Pascua said this is part of the department’s Basic Education-Learning Continuity Plan (BE-LCP).
“The Department is determined to strengthen education delivery through television, whether it is through commercial broadcast TV networks, free channels, government-owned TV stations, and even cable TV networks,” he said in a statement. AAC (with reports from Dante Amento)
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) has denied claims made by an organization alleging the department of ordering teachers in several provinces to visit communities and convince parents to enroll their children for the upcoming school year.
DepEd said such a claim is baseless and false.
The agency explained that when the Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) was formulated before the enrollment period, an existing protocol requires teachers to check the status of their former learners in any way applicable; may it be by text, by telephone and other means.
“The objective is to reconfirm whether learners shall participate in the incoming school year, in light of the COVID-19 situation,” the DepEd said in a statement.
DepEd also included a survey to determine the limitations and needs of the students in relation to the new normal system due to the outbreak of COVID-19.
“The alleged enrollment quota is not true,” the agency said.
