The District of Candoni Division of Negros Occidental, Western Visayas, Philippines in the scenario of new normal environment consistently strives to provide quality basic education that is accessible to every learner through the use of learning modality that is suited to address the needs of our clienteles while ensuring the health and well-being of our personnel and learners by observing health protocols with the help and support of all our stakeholders.
The adoption of the learning modality is possible through series of consultations and discussions among DEPED personnel and external stakeholders during the development of the Learning Continuity Plan and we decided the modality of Modular Distance Learning Assisted by Two-Way Radio Handset since this is the only option suited in the locality. To ensure that Modular Distance Learning is effective to our pupils the reinforcement and assistance of Two-Way Radio Handset is recommended in order that the transfer of learning is possible with the guidance and support of the teachers, parents, partners and other stakeholders.
In as much as the Municipality of Candoni, Province of Negros Occidental is a Fourth Class Municipality and dominantly an agriculture community where Special Education Fund is minimal amounting to only Five Hundred Thousand Pesos (PhP 500, 000.00) for this year we find difficulty in establishing the 6 585 units of Two-Way Radio Handsets and 106 sets of Radio Base with Antenna in all schools for the utilization of our learners and teachers. It is in our desire to look for partners who can help us in order that this equipment will be in placed before the opening of classes for school year 2020 – 2021. Hopefully this current situation of our District DEPED Candoni could be supported by any philanthropic individual or organization whose advocacy is to help a good cause in education especially we are now facing the pandemic crisis.
