    DepEd: Opening of classes for SY 2020-2021 may be moved to August

    MANILA, Philippines – Opening of classes for school year 2020-2021 may be moved to a later date due to COVID-19 enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) considerations, the Department of Education (DepEd) said on Tuesday.

    "The law provides that school opening shall start on the first monday of June but not later that the last day of August. The responses favor any day in August as the preferred opening of the school year," DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said in a statement.

    Briones refers to the ongoing consultations with the executive committee, management committee, civil society, business sector and education experts on the issue of the school opening for next school year.

    UPDATEDepEd: School opening in August does not mean physical return

    DepEd is conducting a much bigger survey of more than 700,000 respondents, not only on the opening of the school year but also matters related to social distancing; and online classes, cellphone, television or radio as alternative or complementary approaches to learning. The results will come out in a few days.

    "In the meantime, the IATF is seriously considering recommendations to the President on the ECQ," Briones added.

    DepEd is now accelerating the preparation of our Learning Continuity Plan (LCP), preparing benefits for our teaching and non-teaching staff, ensuring the readiness and cleanliness of our school infrastructure, and developing alternative delivery modes of learning.

    "What we assure our learners, parents, teachers, and the general public is that any decision we will make for the continuation of learning will have their health, safety and well-being as primary consideration," Briones said.
