Deped to release guidelines on allowed activities in schools – VP Sara

Vice President and Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Sara Duterte said the department will soon release guidelines on activities allowed in schools for the school year.

“Meron tayong ilalabas na department order na nagsasabing dapat co-curricular at academic activities lang ang gagawin this school year. So ang mga extra-curricular activities ay ipinagbabawal po natin,” Duterte said.

The said order will specify standards of activities allowed for the school year.

“Nilagay na po namin doon ang listahan paano tayo mag-identify ng extra curricular at kung paano tayo mag-identify ng co-curricular,” she said.

Duterte said the DepEd will focus on the academic development of students.

“Kailangan nakatutok tayo sa academics ng ating mga estudyante to catch up on the learning losses during the two years na hindi sila nakapag-in-person classes dahil meron talagang kaibahan ang pure online na klase at yung merong in person classes para sa ating mga learners,” she said.

“Ngayong taon po wala tayong Palarong Pambansa pero sa susunod na taon gumagawa sila ng draft proposal para sa Palarong Pambansa,” she added.

Duterte said the department has been communicating with the DBM to allow DepEd to start school constructions.

“Sinabi naman po namin sa kanila, naka-ilang sulat na po si Sec. Briones. Sumulat na rin po ako sa kanila, iniulit ang position ng Department of Education na ‘wag i-devolve ang construction ng school building program sa ating mga LGUs dahil hindi pare-pareho ang kapasidad ng mg LGUs at hindi binigyan ng mandato ang mga LGUs na yung matatanggap nila na pera ay dapat ipagawa nila ng school buildings,” Duterte explained.

“Patuloy naming kinakausap ang DBM at patuloy kaming nagre-request sa Office of the President na i-exclude ang school building program sa pagbigay nito sa mga LGUs para nandito pa rin sa Department of Education ang mga pagpapagawa ng classrooms sa lahat ng LGUs natin,” she added.
