DepEd Releases Guidelines on the Conduct of Remedial Classes during Summer 2021
The Department of Education has released the guidelines on the conduct of remedial and advancement classes for summer 2021.
DepEd aims to assist schools in determining the learning modality for remedial classes suited to the health situation in the community.
Remedial, advancement, and enrichment classes for summer 2021 shall be conducted from July 19, 2021 to August 21, 2021.
“Remedial and advancement classes must be completed within a six-week period that may include Saturdays. Schools may also opt to shorten the conduct of remedial and advancement classes when the essential learning competencies have already been attained,” Education Secretary Leonor Briones said.
DepEd required schools to implement distance learning modalities to ensure the protection of learners, teachers, and stakeholders.
“Teachers may conduct advance or remedial classes remotely with the help of the resources stored in the DepEd Commons and DepEd Learning Resources Management and Development System. This is crucial to help our learners cope and develop their skills according to Most Essential Learning Competencies in their grade level,” Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction Diosdado San Antonio said.
A learner who got a grade lower than 75 in any subject must be given intervention through remediation and must pass the remedial classes for promotion to the next grade level.
