3-day school week eyed
in Yolanda-hit provinces
The Department of Education in the Central Visayas said it is considering the possibility of implementing a three-day school week in areas badly affected by super typhoon Yolanda, and in schools that are highly congested, a government press release said.
DepEd 7 director Carmelita Dulangon said the scheme will address the problem of the lack of classrooms in the region, that is composed of Negros Oriental, Cebu, Bohol and Siquijor.
She said alternative modes of teaching will be used for the scheme. The implementation will selective, and schools still have the option to share rooms with several classes, Dulangon added.
