Distance learning

Education Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio said last year that classes may be cancelled due to power interruption as learners are dependent on online platforms for the distance learning - a mix of online classes and modular due to COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the automatic class suspension guideline by DepEd, the local government units (LGUs) have the authority to declare local suspensions.

Meanwhile, cancellation of classes in the tertiary level especially in the private institutions will be at discretion of school administrators.
