Pampanga SDOs launch strategic projects for Kapampangan learners


CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — Schools Division Offices (SDOs) in Pampanga launched various strategic projects to ensure accessible education to Kapampangan learners amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Department of Education (DepEd) Regional Director May Eclar mentioned the Basic Education Learning Continuity Plans of SDO Pampanga, SDO City of San Fernando, SDO Angeles City, and SDO Mabalacat City. 

Under the new normal of education, SDO Pampanga partnered with the Provincial Government and CLTV 36 to deliver lessons via TV-based instruction known as Super K-Teleskwela. 

“This modality supplements the Modular Instruction to provide quality and more accessible learning opportunities to learners. TV-based lessons are produced for Grades 4-Senior High School students and SPED learners across all learning areas from Monday to Saturday at 11:00 am until 7:00 pm,” Eclar explained. 

Meanwhile, the Division Call Center for Tutors and Guidance Counselors program of SDO City of San Fernando prioritizes the holistic development of its learners, and allows students, parents and stakeholders to raise their concerns on mental health and overall health being. 

Eclar furthered that it helps address questions on Self-Instructional Packets which is the main modality in the City of San Fernando. 

“The program includes the deployment of volunteer public school teachers Monday to Friday from 8:00AM to 6:00PM to address academic-related queries and concerns, and the counselling services of guidance teachers and counsellors 24/7, seven days a week,” she said. 

On the other hand, she stressed that SDO Angeles City produced Learning Activity Sheets per learning area paving the way for the continuous delivery of education. 

Moreover, Eclar cited the radio-based instruction, dubbed as “Sikat Radyo Eskwela”, launched by SDO Mabalacat City to reach more learners especially those from far-flung communities. 

“The project opened hundreds of opportunities for teachers to discover their potentials as broadcasters on air, for parents to ease the burden in Modular Distance Learning and for stakeholders to share their time and resources,” she added.
