THE limited pilot testing of face-to-face classes will begin on November 15, according to Education Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan.
Malaluan addressed the schedule of the pilot run's implementation during a Senate committee meeting on basic education Wednesday (October 6).
“We start on November 15, the face-to-face classes and tinaon po natin doon sa pilot schools, tinaon po ‘yan natin sa umpisa ng academic quarter two ng ating school calendar,” Malaluan told senators.
He stated that the limited face-to-face classes would commence in time for the second grading quarter to begin.
The pilot implementation will end on January 31.
DepEd hopes to have an initial assessment of the run by the end of December.
On March 7, the Department of Education plans to raise the number of face-to-face classes it offers.
The DepEd also released a tentative list of 59 schools that passed the Department of Health's (DOH) granular risk assessment for the pilot test.
To recall, President Duterte in late September approved the conduct of limited face-to-face classes in areas with minimal risk of Covid-19 infection.
The limited face-to-face classes will initially cover 100 public schools and 20 private schools, and will involve Kindergarten to Grade 3 students.
