Government official recommends school year to start August or September

ACT-CIS party-list Representative Jocelyn Tulfo urged concerned government agencies to move the opening of classes for the next school year to either August or September to give schools time to recover from the impact of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation.

Tulfo recommended to the Department of Education, the Commission on Higher Education, the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority, and the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to "synchronize the opening of the new school year either in August or September" on a trial basis.

"Maraming eskuwelahan ang kinailangang gamitin bilang staging area, relief goods distribution center, o temporary community quarantine facility. Marapat lamang na malinis nang maigi ang bawat sulok ng mga paaralan," she added.

She said an entire month should be devoted for decontamination of all school and sports facilities, including dormitories, that were used for COVID-19 response measures.

At the same time, Tulfo said delaying the opening of classes would also allow the national and local governments to come up with solutions to ensure that every student will be able to attend school amid the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
