A DepEd initiative to provide alternative learning delivery platforms in lieu of class suspension.
“We acknowledge the reality of situation wherein DepEd Commons and Open Education Resources (OER) are not accessible to all teachers and learners. Many of our schools still do not have connectivity and access to Internet. But in this extraordinary situation we find ourselves in, we must walk before we run. We must start somewhere and work our way towards the ideal where all teachers and learners in the country can access such resources,” – Undersecretary Pascua
The Department of Education reaffirms its commitment to improve the working condition and expand the welfare of its personnel as it continuously reviews and reduces the workload of teachers.
Two phases of DepEd’s ongoing review comprise of the creation of simplified school forms, standardization of format, updating and reduction of data needed in existing school forms, and maximizing the available technology and information system.
As a result, the Department has reduced 36 common school forms to 10 official school forms that will significantly diminish time and effort spent by teachers on work preparations.
