THE PHILIPPINE State College of Aeronautics’ Supreme Student Council sought the suspension of synchronous classes as the National Capital Region was placed under modified enhanced community quarantine.

The council, in a letter sent to the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, asked that asynchronous classes be held from April 12 to 30, 2021.

It also asked the school to help students in need of load assistance for distance learning, as well as those who were infected with Covid19.

Due consideration for working students was also requested.

The council cited the result of a survey that it conducted that 42.8 percent of students reside in NCR and they are greatly disturbed by the pandemic and the quarantine.

The survey showed that 6.6 percent of students had a Covid19 positive individual in their household.

“We, the council, the SOs, and the whole PhilSCAn community are hoping that you consider our call. Amidst this difficult time, may all the constituents of PhilSCA work hand in hand in ensuring that students and faculty members are in safe conditions, physically, emotionally, and mentally. We also call for prayers of healing and protection to those who have been affected,” the council said.

The school has yet to respond to the group’s call.
