Over 1.7K schools in Central Luzon are gearing up to begin limited F2F programs.

PAMPANGA’S CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – In Central Luzon, over 1,700 schools are now ready to undertake restricted face-to-face (F2F) sessions.

As part of the execution of the progressive development of in-school programs, the Department of Education (DepEd) Regional Office 3 gave the School Safety Assessment Tool Compliance Certificate (SSATCC) to 1,764 public and seven private schools in the region.

“The SSATCC indicates that our schools are ready to undertake restricted face-to-face lessons while awaiting the approval of their individual local chief executives and the improvement of health circumstances in their respective areas,” DepEd Regional Director May Eclar said in a statement on Monday.

All DepEd regional directors are authorized to continue the implementation of limited face-to-face classes in the original pilot schools, as well as the start of the progressive expansion phase for both public and private schools, under the Interim Guidelines on the Expansion of Limited Face-to-Face Classes, provided that expansion schools have been validated as compliant with the standards of the School Safety Assessment Tool (SSAT).

According to Eclar, the SSAT assesses school preparation based on four indicators: school operations, teaching and learning, wellness and protection, and home-school coordination.

The SSATCC, which certifies that a school has met all four indicators, must be prominently displayed at all entrance points and must conform to the dimensions specified in Regional Memorandum No. 145, series of 2022, or the Implementation Guidelines on the Issuance of School Safety Assessment Tool Compliance Certificate for Progressive Expansion of Limited Face-to-Face Classes.

The SSATCC is valid for six months from the date of issuance and is renewable subject to continued compliance with all eligibility requirements, which include the following conditions: schools are in areas with Alert Levels 1 and 2 based on the Department of Health’s (DOH) periodic risk assessment, validation report from the division/district composite team indicating compliance with the SSAT, and endorsement from the superintendent of the school’s division to the r

A valid allegation of a purposeful violation of any of the minimum public health criteria or clustering of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases documented in the school may result in the SSATCC being canceled.
