New classrooms sought for expected swell of HS seniors
by Harley F. Palangchao

Baguio needs at least a hundred class and laboratory rooms to accommodate 40 percent of the expected 10,000 senior high school students in 2016.

Baguio Schools Division Superintendent Francis Cesar Bringas said Monday these class and laboratory rooms will be set up in at least seven sites within the city.

Bringas said DepEd-Baguio was able to comply with requirements but the central office only approved five classrooms for senior high school students who will enroll in public schools.

DepEd-Baguio, however, lobbied to increase the five school buildings to seven considering the huge number of senior high school students by 2016.

He said the big three universities — Saint Louis University, University of the Cordilleras and University of Baguio — are expected to accommodate most of the 10,000 projected senior high school students.

Bringas said the presence of private universities offering secondary curriculum greatly helps in DepEd’s preparation for the mandatory senior high school or grade 11.

Earlier, DepEd Sec. Armin Luistro urged the public and private colleges and universities to put up “specialized” senior high school programs under the newly signed K to 12 Basic Education Program law.

The K to 12 Basic Education Program makes it compulsory to enroll children in kindergarten before they can begin six years of primary education.

Two years will be added to the four-year high school curriculum.

The additional years will serve as a specialization period for senior high school students, whether in vocational skills, music, arts, or sports.
