DepEd’s expansion of F2F classes guidelines apply to private, public schools

Department of Education (DepEd) clarifies that the “Interim Guidelines on the Expansion of Limited Face-to-face Classes” requirements are for both private and public schools.

Malcolm Garma, DepEd assistant secretary, said that private schools are allowed to decide their specific date when to start the resumption of the classes. On the other hand, National Capital Region (NCR) is set to conduct its classes in an actual classroom setting on February 9 with the 29 pilot schools.

Other regions, including Cagayan Valley, Batanes, Central Luzon, and CALABARZON, are also set to expand face-to-face classes in the following weeks.

Garma added that the department did not issue an exact date for the implementation since the decision is dependent on the Alert Levels from the Inter-Agency Task Force and the record of COVID-19 cases. Moreover, the classes can be done anytime in Alert Levels 1 and 2 areas.

DepEd also allowed the school heads to make changes and adjustments to the interim guidelines according to the needs and situations in their areas.

As of February 4, DepEd has already approved 6347 schools ready to implement the expanded face-to-face classes.
