A learning recovery plan framework is being developed to guide schools in addressing learning gaps due to the pandemic, the Department of Education said.
“As more schools open their doors for physical learning, the Department is currently crafting a learning recovery program as part of our post-pandemic efforts,” Sec. Leonor Briones said.
Briones added the agency needs to ensure that interventions are effective so that every learner can catch up and accelerate their learning.
The proposed policy is anchored on learning remediation and intervention, professional development, health, safety, and wellness.
“Ito ‘yung mga istratehiya na minumungkahi ng curriculum and instruction strand upang matugunan ‘yung learning gaps at para ma-accelerate ‘yung learning natin,” Asec. for Curriculum and Instruction Alma Torio said.
The framework includes extending the school calendar, expanding learning time, establishing learning support center in schools and other learning spaces, conduct summer learning remediation and intervention programs, and hiring of additional learning support aides, Torio added.
The DepEd has prepared plans and interventions to make physical and online learning more adaptive.
“Kasama rin po sa framework natin para sa safe na pagbabalik ng ating mga mag-aaral sa paaralan ay ‘yung probisyon sa health, safety, at wellness. Under this concept, we would like to address the socio-emotional and behavioral recovery of learners,” Torio said.
Torio added they will strengthen the Oplan Kalusugan and focus on child protection/child online protection, and establishment of helplines/health lines.
DepEd will start its phase 1 of the implementation this summer, while phase 2 will be implemented for school year 2022-2023, and phase 3 will start on school year 2023-2024. – PIA
