ILOILO CITY MAYOR APPROVES F2F CLASSES
ILOILO City Mayor Jerry Treñas has allowed private and public schools to conduct face-to-face classes.
Treñas emphasized the need to resume in-person instruction as online and modular education appears not to have been too effective.
He said that his decision to give the green light to physical classes was “predicated on the continuous decrease in the number of [Covid19] cases in the city as well as its active vaccination rollout.”
In Executive Order 63, the mayor said “there is a need to support mechanisms in the education sector particularly in the resumption of face-to-face classes aligned with the appropriate approaches to ensure continuity of learning towards the new normal.”
The Department of Education is pushing for the holding of full face-to-face classes by August in public and private schools.
