“All systems go” for the start of classes on August 22: DepEd
On Friday, the Department of Education (DepEd) said that it was prepared for the start of courses on August 22.
In a press conference, DepEd spokesperson Michael Poa declared, “All systems go na tayo for the start of classes.”
According to Poa, a total of 24,175 public and private schools across the country, or 46%, will introduce five-day face-to-face classes, while 29,721 schools, or around 51.8 percent, will do the same with blended learning.
The remaining 1.29 percent, or roughly 1,004 schools, will offer distant education.
According to Poa, who cited DepEd data from August 19, there are already 27 million students enrolled in basic education, which is 96% of the agency’s target of 28.6 million.
Epimaco Densing III, an undersecretary of the DepEd, had stated that schools would only have access to in-person, mixed, or fully online instruction up to October 31.
Under DepEd Order (DO) 034, series of 2022, all enrolled students will then be expected to attend face-to-face classes.
“This is needed; they must all attend school, and the duty is truly to finally interact in person. Everyone enrolled is expected to follow the Department Order, and parents are urged to make sure that their children attend class. Once more, we’re working to improve education, he remarked.
The same DO 034 states that the academic year 2022–2023 for public schools, starting on August 22, 2022, and ending on July 7, 2023, would have 203 days.
