THE DEPARTMENT of Education said that 10,196 schools have resumed face-to-face classes.
Education Assistant Secretary Malcolm Garma said that 9,994 public schools and 212 private schools are at the participating level.
“Ang ibig sabihin ng participating, ito ‘yung nominated schools that are now under Alert Levels 1 and 2. Ito po ‘yung puwede na magbukas,” Garma said.
“In fact marami po diyan ay nakapagbukas na or nakapagsimula na ng kanilang limited face-to-face classes,” he added.
Garma said DepEd regional offices nominated 14,396 public and private schools with 2.6 million students to resume in-person classes.
These nominated schools have completed the Covid19 School Safety Assessment Tool.
