Over 10,000 public and private schools have been approved to resume limited face-to-face classes, the Department of Education (DepEd) said Wednesday.
According to DepEd Assistant Secretary Malcoln Garma, as of March 22, a total of 10, 196 schools are implementing limited face-to-face classes. Of this number, 9,994 are public schools and 212 are private schools.
“A total of 9,994 public schools and 212 private schools are already in the participating level. Ang ibig sabihin ng participating, ito ‘yung nominated schools that are now under Alert Levels 1 and 2. Ito po ‘yung pwede na magbukas,” Garma said in a statement.
Assec. Garma added that a total of 14,396 public and private schools, with 2.6 million learners, have been nominated by the education department regional offices to resume limited in-person classes.
Only kindergarten, Grades 1–3, and senior high school students were allowed to participate in the experimental run of in-person classes prior to this.
Following an experimental run of physical lessons last year, Duterte approved in-person classes in public and private schools in areas under Alert Levels 1 and 2.
