SCHOOLS IN BUTUAN CITY CONTINUE TO DISTRIBUTE CLASS MODULES
BUTUAN CITY – Several schools are still distributing class modules as the school year 2020-2021 formally opened on October 5, Monday.
According to Dr. Marilou Dedumo, Butuan City Schools Division Superintendent, they have been giving out the modules to the students two weeks before the opening of the class, however, they prioritized the smaller schools in the city.
Meanwhile, Agusan National High School and Butuan Central Elementary School are still releasing the class modules because of the massive number of enrollees. That’s why inevitably many parents flocked to the said schools to get the modules and books.
According to the superintendent, they’ve instructed the abovementioned schools to strictly implement health protocols and follow the quarantine pass color coding for the parents and guardians. However, the influx of people uncontrolled, forcing them to ask for assistance from the police.
“Actually naa man tay schedule sa distribution, di lang gyud siguro ma-control ang Butuan Central ug Agusan National High School kay thousands of learners man sila,” said the superintendent.
(Actually, we have a schedule for the distribution. It’s just that maybe Butuan Central and Agusan National High are hard to control because they have thousands of learners.)
She further said that they are 90% accomplished in releasing the modules, and they expect to complete it within the week. However, there are lacking modules for grade nine because the central office has yet to release the copies.
“Pero nag-instruct naman mi nga naa may mga activity sheet developed by the teachera and then naa tay mga libro. So instead of using the modules, mugamit ang mga learners sa mga textbooks ug kadtong mga activity sheets,” the superintendent said.
(But we have instructions regarding the activity sheets develop by the teachers, and there are also books. So instead of using modules, the learners will use the textbooks and activity sheets.)
