National Public School Database Automation Pushed
Senator Sherwin Gatchalian has filed a measure mandating the automation of the National Public School Database.
Gatchalian said the National Public School Database will serve as a mechanism to provide timely, relevant and accurate information to school heads and teachers that will help them perform their administrative tasks.
It will also serves as a layer of protection for the safe-keeping of learners records, he added.
“Documents are easily damaged and lost due to fragile storage, flood, fire and other disasters. Storing learners’ school records in a database ensures that these important documents are preserved and easily accessible,” Gatchalian said.
