Baguio City, Philippines – The Department of Education – Cordillera says it plans to implement limited face-to-face classes for all learners in the region for the school year 2022-2023.
Regional Director Estella Cariño, through Mt. Province Broadcasting Corporation-MPBC, explained on Wednesday, July 06, 2022, that the setup would not mean that students will attend in-person classes every day.
Cariño said the schools will schedule certain days in a week for face-to-face classes. Other days, she added, would be spent by the students at home, doing assigned activities.
According to the regional director, full in-person classes are not yet possible in the region due to lack of resources such as classrooms, and teachers, among others. Therefore, other learning modalities are still needed.
As of March, a total of 863 public elementary and high schools in Cordillera are already implementing limited face-to-face classes.
Of the said schools, 678 are elementary, 162 are secondary schools, and 23 are integrated schools.
