Tacloban City DepEd joins the rest of the public schools in the country as enrolment in all grade levels starts today
According to SDS Dr. Mariza S. Magan, this school year’s enrolment activity follows the remote/digital scheme (text messaging, email, or private messaging) or the limited physical or face-to-face scheme prioritizing strict compliance of IATF health protocols, as privided for by the DepEd Order O32, s. 2021.
Meanwhile, the Schools Division Office of Deped Tacloban provides guidance and technical assistance to schools for smooth facilitation of enrolment. Hotlines have been activated for queries thru Oplan Balik Eskwela which is annually implemented.
“Hopefully, we can still get our school children to enroll this year despite our situation. We did it last year and we can make it better this time, taking into consideration our learnings from the experience,” says Dr. Magan.
A virtual orientation on the enrolment guidelines under the same DepEd Order was also conducted with representatives from different schools participating, as shared by DepEd Tacloban Information Officer Dr. Nilo Eder.
