TYPHOON ROLLY DESTROYED MORE THAN 77,000 LEARNING MATERIALS
THE DEPARTMENT of Education said that Typhoon Rolly damaged more than 77,000 learning materials.
As of today, November 4, reports showed that 77,829 learning materials were destroyed in 24 school divisions.
Also, 5,265 computer sets and 13,417 school furniture were damaged.
DepEd Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio told The POST that the department will explore options to replace the damaged learning modules.
“Our finance team is exploring options,” he said.
The school official said that with the devastation wrought by the typhoon, the department will “always allow flexibility” in distance learning.
San Antonio earlier said that schools may conduct make up classes.
“Since we are very flexible with the learning delivery now, we will also expect the schools or Schools Division Offices to decide on the specifics of makeup classes,” he said.
As of November 4, classes in all levels in Marinduque and Legazpi City remain suspended.
