TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The Kalinga State University is seeking the support of local government units in upland municipalities in delivering learning modules to students who went home due to the lockdown.

 KSU President Eduardo T. Bagtang made the appeal during the provincial inter-agency task force consultation on the general community quarantine (GCQ).

 Because of the threat of coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19), classes were cancelled in all levels in the province since mid-March, forcing students from upland towns to go home.

 In compliance to the Commission on Higher Education’s recent order that schools must end their semester on May 31, the university has adopted a flexible learning scheme to allow students to complete their requirements, Bagtang said. This has allowed students can do their lessons through modular and online instructions.

 While students in Tabuk City did not incur problems on online lessons, students in upland towns with no Internet connectivity need to be provided with modules, Bagtang said.

About 500 KSU students living in these sites are affected, Bagtang said. KSU has at least 4,000 enrollees.

 With the support and cooperation of host municipalities, Bagtang hoped that students would be able to comply with their requirements, especially those graduating this semester. – Larry Lopez
