The BJMP, BFP and the PNP in partnership with the DepEd and the local government units of Paracelis launched recently the Adopt-a-Learner Program with the theme “Hangad Namin Edukasyon Mo” to support the new learning modalities that will be implemented in the municipality.
Part of the support of the uniformed personnel is the donation of school and office supplies for schools and the learners, the delivery and retrieval of printed learning modules to the learners from the different schools including those in the far flung areas. Some personnel also volunteered as para-teachers who will be deployed in the different barangays.
During the launching program, school heads and teachers received donated school supplies from the BJMP, PNP, BFP and LGU Paracelis led by Mayor Marcos Ayangwa and from Martina Lodong Tomer, a donor from Mountain Province residing in the USA.
Ayangwa thanked the different agencies and individuals for their support to the new learning modalities to be implemented during this time of pandemic. Thru the collaborative efforts of the different stakeholders, the new mode of education for learners in Paracelis will be implemented smoothly.
The Mayor also announced that the LGU has allotted P600, 000 from the Special Education Fund to be used for the needed equipment and materials of the schools.
The LGU will also be funding P500, 000 each for the installation of internet connection in the nine barangays to be used for online classes.
In August, the DepEd Cordillera regional office signed a memorandum of agreement with the Police Regional Office - Cordillera, BJMP-CAR, BFP-CAR, and the Philippine Army based in the Cordillera to help ensure the smooth implementation of the blended learning system in the region.
The DepEd-CAR also sent off the different stakeholders including the para-teachers or volunteer teachers who will be deployed in the different provinces and municipalities to help the learners who will be adjusting into the new learning modalities implemented this school year. (JDP/RMC- PIA CAR)
