DepEd eyes August 23 as start of SY 2021-2022

The Department of Education (DepEd) is eyeing August 23 as the start of classes for the next school year 2021-2022, shortening the usual 2 months student’s break to just 6 weeks.

“Ang napag-usapan natin ay July 10 matatapos at kung hindi mabago, August 23 magbubukas [ang next school year]. So halos 6 na linggo ‘yong break sa pagitan ng 2 school year,” Education Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio told media outlets.

“Parang 2 weeks lang naman shorter [sa] dating 2 months kasi pandemya naman. Sana hindi na siya mahirap para sa marami,” he added.

San Antonio stressed that they are preparing for the “ideal scenario,” where students will be able to attend limited face-to-face classes for the next school year.

“Iyong ideal scenario namin, papayagan na ang mga bata na magpunta sa school, kahit paminsan-minsan. May pinaghahandaan din kaming stratehiya para diyan,” he said.

DepEd Usec San Antonio also pointed out that mistakes from the current school years’ learning resources are now fixed, making it easier for the next school year.

“At least iyong mga mali-maling learning resources, naayos na natin. Iyong mga learning resources, nandiyan na so hindi na kasing hirap,” he said.

“Dahil may karanasan na rin sa pagsasagawa nito (distance learning) ngayong pasukan, makakagawa na rin ang mga kasamang guro natin at mga principal ng mas mainam na paraan para ang mga bata ay hindi masyadong mahirapan,” San Antonio added.
