To ensure everyone’s safety, schools in Bohol have implemented on Monday strict safety protocols as they conducted module distribution.
In Dr. Cecilio Putong National High School in Tagbilaran City, they imposed no contact policy.
At the school’s entrance, parents would have to step on the footbath and have their temperature check. They were also required to fill up the rapid assessment form.
The Manga National High School and Tagbilaran City Central School also implemented similar safety practices.
“So far, there is no problem in module distribution,” said Grade 7 Generosity teacher Jeycelle Espejo-Inting of DCPNHS.
A significant number of students, teachers and learners still opted to use printed modules based on their survey, so it would be the default tool for learning delivery in DCPNHS.
Assistant school principal Meljun Daniel Jr. said DCPNHS has 7, 450 students, higher compared to last year’s enrolment.
Daniel said the school had already printed all the modules needed for this month.
“So far, we have been able to print all the modules for the first four weeks. We have sufficient modules. I think all our learners will be able to get their sufficient copies,” he said.
As of September 2, there were 164,165 enrolees for elementary, 83, 498 for junior high school and 31, 514 for senior high school in public schools in Bohol province. School year 2019-2020 had 285,254 students.
In private schools, there were 3,301 enrolees for elementary and 13, 735 for junior high and 6, 270 for senior high schools. It was below than 47,456 in school year 2019-2020.
DepEd-Bohol said of the total 933 elementary public schools, there is only one (1) digital and 28 online modular in blended distance learning; 533 printed materials; and 351 digital and printed.
Some schools opted to choose blended distance learning where it is a combination of both.
