Senator Sherwin Gatchalian urged local government units (LGUs) to launch their localized versions of the Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) of the Department of Education (DepEd) more than a month before the re-opening of classes.
Gatchalian said LGU-led dry runs would recognize both specific problems and solutions for smoother execution of the localized LCP. Meanwhile, the DepEd is set to conduct dry distance learning in the first week of August.
The senator added that LGUs should design their dry runs based on their constituents’ most preferred learning methods. He cited Navotas as an example where the LGU disbursed boxes containing textbooks, self-learning modules, activity sheets, and school supplies. In Alaminos Schools Division, modular and online learning can be delivered to students.
Alternative learning methods under the LCP include modular learning or printed and digital modules, online learning, and the use of radio and television.
