DepEd-7 allows delayed submission of modules

CEBU, Philippines — The Department of Education in Central Visayas is giving the students more time to answer their modules by allowing delayed submission of accomplished modules.

DepEd-7 director Salustiano Jimenez said they do not want to burden the students and their parents with strict deadlines.

“Nihatag gyud ta og extension, hatagan nato og saktong oras ang mga tinun-an nga makatubag sa ilang mga module,” Jimenez said.

He said the teachers are also doing their best to assist the students and the parents. According to Jimenez, the teachers are personally checking on the situation of their students, especially those living in far-flung areas, despite the pandemic.

Some school administrators are also doing home visits. He, however, assured that health protocols are strictly observed.

“Ato na sila gitugotan nga makaduaw sa mga area. Siyempre magsunod  pud sa health protocols,” Jimenez told The Freeman.

He urged the parents not to hesitate to communicate with the teachers on matters concerning the modules.

“Ato giawhag ang mga ginikanan nga dili maulaw o maikog  pag-communicate sa teachers sa ilang mga anak kun duna silay wala nasabtan sa modules,” Jimenez said.

He assured that DepEd remains committed to provide quality and accessible education to all students despite the ongoing health crisis. DepEd has implemented a modular distant learning system this school year because of the coronavirus disease pandemic.

Modular learning is one of the alternative ways of DepEd’s distance learning. It is being supplemented by other systems such as TV and radio broadcasts and online classes.

Jimenez said that DepEd-7 is currently negotiating with some local radio stations to bring learning into the airwaves. Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella earlier said the city government is also planning to use radio stations as a flat form to reach more learners.

He said some parents are having difficulty in helping their children with the modules. Labella said, through the radio, a teacher can discuss a particular subject and help the students understand their lessons.  FPL (FREEMAN)
