– Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda vowed to provide necessary equipment for the printing of modules, and production of educational materials for television intended for the implementation of the blended learning program of the Department of Education (DepEd).

In particular, the Pampanga government is set to give 74 units of risograph machine to various cities and municipalities in the province, and will shoulder the expenses for the block time program in a local TV station plus the cost of production.

This was gleaned during a meeting attended by Governor Delta, local chief executives, and officials of DepEd-III at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center here.

After several meetings, the provincial government, Pampanga Mayor’s League (PML), and DepEd have finally come out with the final plans for the implementation of the said program.

It was agreed upon during the meeting that the province will use modular and television approach once the school year opens on August 24.

“Lahat ng equipment, cost sa TV program and production, sagot na ng provincial government. So, ang pag-uusapan na lang ng mga supervisor and mayors is ‘yung printing, cost ng papers and ink,” Governor Delta said.

Meanwhile, Zenia Mostoles, DepEd provincial director, commended the provincial government for its initiative to still provide high quality education to students amid the prevalence of COVID-19.

“Napakasaya, dahil lahat ng ating executives ay nagtatanong kung paano sila makatutulong. Lahat ay interesado para lalong mapabuti ang ating mga kabataan dito sa probinsiya,” she said.

She also urged the parents to enrol their children before the registration ends on July 15.

“Sa ating mga magulang na hindi pa nai-enrol ang mga anak, tuluy-tuloy pa rin ang enrolment natin hanggang July 15. Kung wala tayong access, patulong tayo sa barangay o kung kanino man na pwedeng makatulong para makasama ang ating mga anak sa mga naka-enrol sa taong 2020-2021,” she furthered.

The Blended Learning is a program proposed by the DepEd in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that caused interruption to the education of students. — Jasmine D. Jaso/Pampanga PIO
