The Department of Education (DepEd) said on Sunday it has delivered over 88 percent of printed learning modules to public school students, a week before classes open on Oct. 5 via distance learning as the COVID-19 pandemic prevents face-to-face classes.
DepEd Undersecretary Revsee Escobedo says the data is based on a Sept. 19 report of the department.
“As of Sept. 19, 88.6 percent na po ng mga self-learning module ay naihatid na sa mga mag-aaral,” Escobedo told ABS-CBN’s TeleRadyo.
(As of Sept. 19, 88.6 percent of self-learning modules were delivered to students.)
The education official noted that DepEd’s field units are in coordination with local government units for the delivery and distribution of printed learning modules.
“Ang pamamaraan nila ay inihahatid nila ito (modules) at binibigay sa mga magulang. Mayroon naman, kung hindi puwede ang magulang, naga-identify sila ng mga pick-up, delivery points sa barangay o kaya sitio,” he said.
(These are delivered and given to parents. For parents who are unavailable to do so, they can identify pick-up, or delivery points within the barangay or sitio.)
The use of printed learning modules is among the different education delivery modes under the DepEd’s distance learning system. The DepEd had said it would also use radio and television broadcast to deliver lessons.
Copies of the learning modules can also be accessed on DepEd’s online platform DepEd Commons. Learning modules are also available on Education PH.
Latest data from DepEd shows that more than 24 million students have enrolled for school year 2020 to 2021.
