1,445 NorMin public schools will offer ‘F2F’ classes.
On August 22, at least 1,445 public schools out of a total of 2,520 government-run learning institutions in Northern Mindanao will open in full face-to-face (F2F) mode.
Wednesday’s press briefing by Dr. Arturo Bayocot, director of the Department of Education-Region 10 (DepEd-10), revealed that approximately 160 private schools would also offer F2F classes.
“Even VP (Vice President) Sara (Duterte-Carpio) stated that all (public) schools will implement face-to-face by November; we are permitted to implement it early as long as fundamental public health protocols are followed,” Bayocot said.
He added that the majority of schools in hinterland barangays would also open with F2F classes.
Bayocot stated that this city’s school district would be the only one to continue using the “blended” learning approach, at least for the foreseeable future.
City Assistant Division Superintendent Lorebina Carrasco stated that blended learning will be implemented for two weeks to “test the waters.”
Carrasco stated, “Eventually, we will implement face-to-face in all barangays, but we have already identified our hinterland barangays as the initial implementation sites.”
DepEd-10 anticipates that more than 1,300,000 students will return to at least 3,101 schools in Northern Mindanao.
