Angeles City allots P10 M for classrooms

Ric Sapnu, (The Philippine Star) - October 14, 2015 - 10:00am

ANGELES CITY, Philippines — Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan has approved the allocation of P10 million for the construction of senior high school (SHS) classrooms in this city for 2016.

The budget was approved during the 8th Local Development Council (LDC) held Monday at the Lewis Grand Hotel in Barangay Malabanias.

The P10-million budget would be taken from the 20 percent development fund of the local government.

“We have always stood behind the principle that education can be the cure-all to the ills and woes of society, particularly crime and poverty. As such, it is only right that we prioritize the construction of these additional classrooms in the city,” the mayor said.

The construction of additional classrooms will help schools as they adapt to the K to 12 education program of the Department of Education.

The K to 12 program covers Kindergarten and 12 years of basic education (six years of primary education, four years of junior high school, and two years of senior high school), thus adding two more years of education to students.

Other projects covered by the development fund include the redevelopment of the Angeles City Hall, fencing of the City College of Angeles campus, the establishment of a livelihood training center, and development of the Angeles City Watershed in Barangay Sapangbato.

Also approved were infrastructure projects such as drainage improvements, concreting of roads, repair and renovation of day care centers, and the construction and improvement of multi-purpose buildings in different barangays.
