“We will pursue the delivery of accessible, relevant, responsive and inclusive education in all levels which includes the formal system, Alternative Learning System (ALS) and Indigenous People Education (IPEd),” said Regional Director Nicolas Capulong.

Under the DepEd Learning Continuity Framework, all school children and adult learners will acquire the Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELCs) in the midst of pandemic.

Objectives of the framework include: assuring readiness of private and public schools in Central Luzon ; determining the most teaching-learning modalities (synchronous/ asynchronous remote learning, blending learning, radio/TV-based learning, modular learning, home schooling) to develop the most essential learning competencies among learners.

It also includes providing policy guidelines to School Division Offices (SDO) in the implementation and monitoring of teaching-learning modalities (School-based and Remote Learning); transition program for CID and SGOD Chiefs, Education Supervisors, Public Schools District Supervisors, School Heads, and teachers on the adapted teaching-learning modalities; safe and healthy school environment assurance; and establishing partnership with stakeholders in education.

DepEd 3 assures an appropriate response based on various risk analyses and resource requirements.
