Transferees and late enrollees of Pasig City public schools will receive learning devices, Mayor Vico Sotto told parents during a webinar for the upcoming school year.
Sotto assured parents that all students enrolled in public schools in Pasig City will receive tablets as the country’s education system shifts to distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Merong nagsasabi na kung pag transferee o late enrollee hindi na sila kasama, hindi po. Basta nagaaral sa pampublikong paaralan ng Pasig makakatanggap po ‘yan ng tablet,” the official told parents.
(Some are saying that transferees and late enrollees are excluded. That’s not true. As long as they are studying in public schools in Pasig City, they will receive a tablet.)
The local government unit of Pasig City has stepped up its efforts to provide learning devices to public school students of the city in a bid to help the Department of Education in its distance learning shift.
Students are expected to study their lessons at home when classes open on Oct. 5 as face-to-face classes remain prohibited due to the threat of the virus.
“We will help the Department of Education, our students, and their families by providing 138,000 learning pockets, tablets or laptops depending sa pangangailangan (depending on the need),” Sotto said.
“138,000, ibig po sabihin (this means) one is to one. One computer or one tablet is to one student,” he added.
