DepEd Bicol readies 3,000 schoolrooms for SHS students

LEGAZPI CITY -- The Department of Education (DepEd) Bicol regional office has assured that it is very much ready for the full implementation of the K-12 program this school year and has enough school rooms and students for the coming class opening.

Assistant Regional Director Tolentino Aquino said there are about 3,127 senior high school classrooms available for incoming students.

Camarines Sur has the biggest number of classrooms for senior high students with 953; Masbate, 584; Albay, 440; Camarines Norte, 329; Sorsogon, 202 and Catanduanes, 168 classrooms.

For the cities of Albay, there are 77 classrooms for Legazpi City, 72 for Ligao City and 58 for Tabaco City.

Aquino said their office is now all set for the school opening although he admitted that based on the latest report of the Department of Public Works and Highways to DepEd last April, it had a completion status of only 60 percent of senior high school buildings targeted for construction while others are nearing completion.

He said the sites of the school buildings had to undergo soil testing and some of these areas did not pass the test.

The DepEd official, however, assured that their office has contingency measures like the temporary expansion of the class size from 40 to 50 so that the incoming senior high school students can be accommodated in the classrooms.

Elementary schools with excess classrooms can also be used, he said.

In terms of the number of teachers, there are about 2,577 items given by the DepEd Central office to Bicol.

A big number of applicants, Aquino said, have their appointment papers in process, while some are still completing the requirements.

Teachers assigned to senior high school are continuously undergoing training seminars.

In case more teachers would be needed, those junior high school teachers who lack teaching hours will be allowed to undergo training to be able to temporarily teach in senior high schools.

In this case also, displaced college professors have priority for employment based on DepEd guidelines. .

Aquino assured parents that no subject in Grade 11 and Grade 12 will be repeated once they enter college owing to the good coordination among the DepEd, Commission on Higher Education and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority for the re-alignment based on the K-12 program, including private schools.

The final clearing and reporting of the schools to the division and regional offices after the Brigada Eskwela was made on Monday.

Meanwhile, the DepEd-Bicol hopes that the students will report 100 percent on June 13. (PNA)
