LETRAN OPENS CLASSES TOMORROW, AUG 17; IGNORES DEPED’S OCT 5 SCHEDULE
COLEGIO de San Juan de Letran stood firm that it is “more than ready” to open classes for its basic education curriculum on August 17 following the government’s recommendation to move the start of the school year to October 5, 2020.
Letran said it will begin conducting online classes tomorrow, August 17 “until the Department of Education issues a clearer superseding directive on the deferment.”
Colegio de San Juan de Letran explained it has prepared all the necessary steps to open classes like printing and distribution of modules as well as orientation of parents and guardians.
Letran’s announcement drew mixed reactions as some netizens said the modules that had been distributed were “incomplete” while some questioned the school’s decision to defy the national government’s recommendation.
Meanwhile, Letran’s college classes started on August 10 using the school’s flexbile learning scheme called “Let’s Flex”.
