Tarlac Governor Susan Yap Reveals Side on Face-to-Face Classes Dry Run

Tarlac Governor Susan Yap spoke on the dry run of face-to-face classes set to be conducted in selected schools in January 2021.

The classes in schools are among those that are greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This coronavirus disease was recorded in over 200 countries and territories across the globe.

Instead of June, it was already October when classes in elementary and secondary schools under the Department of Education (DepEd) were able to start. Also, face-to-face classes were not adapted this time.

Schools utilized the blended learning scheme. Teachers prepared modules for the students to answer and organized online classes so students need not to go out of their homes to learn.

Recently, the Department of Education proposed a dry run of face-to-face classes. President Rodrigo Roa Duterte approved the said DepEd proposal under certain conditions.

DepEd will collaborate with the health authorities and the pilot implementation of the face-to-face classes will take place in schools considered as low risk areas.

Furthermore, a parent’s consent is needed over the matter. DepEd, on its part, emphasized that parents play a big role on the implementation of the dry run of face to face classes.
