The Department of Education (DepEd) secretary encouraged all public and private schools to resume face-to-face classes for School Year 2022-2023.
DepEd Secretary Leonor M. Briones hopes to fully deploy in-person classes in the country for the next academic school year.
As of the 26th of May, 34,200 schools have been nominated for the expansion of in-person sessions. This represents 73.28 percent of the overall number of public schools and 9.50 percent of the total number of private schools.
Briones noted that at least 30,000, or 66.56 percent, of the nation’s public schools had already begun offering face-to-face instruction. In the meantime, 918, or 7.43 percent of the nation’s private institutions, have started introducing face-to-face classes.
However, DepEd highlighted it is considering a hybrid system in which there would be days when kids are physically present at school and days when they are permitted to learn at home.
DepEd has donated more than 46,000 laptops and PCs, 33,000 tablets, and 14,00 televisions to educational institutions during the past six years.
Briones stated that the Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan was used to ensure that education would continue even during face-to-face classes.
