AC gov’t to provide tablets for use of 2,481 students in CCA

ANGELES CITY – Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. has ordered the purchase of tablets for the City College of Angeles (CCA) to assist the 2,481 city’s scholars in their educational needs, in the event that online classes will be the main mode of learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lazatin said that the local government of Angeles City will be providing the students of the CCA with tablets as part of the educational system’s transition to the new normal.

“There will be an allotted fund from the CCA’s budget for the said initiative,” Lazatin added.

Lazatin also sought the support of internet service providers operating in the city to give free high-quality internet access to the city’s scholars.

The tablets will be considered as government property and the students will have to borrow it from CCA’s library and return the borrowed device in good condition, Lazatin says.

He also clarified that the tablets are strictly for educational use and will be programmed for that purpose alone.

This program is a part of Lazatin’s commitment in making sure that education is inclusive and that no student will be left behind.

Mayor Lazatin earlier also announced that the city government will provide 55,000 tablets to 53 public schools throughout the city for the use of grades 4-12 students.

He allotted P150 million under the Special Education Fund (SEF) surplus for the procurement of the tablets, while an overcollection of P5 million for its SEF will be utilized for one-month free internet subscription for the use of the students.
