    The Department of Education Regional Office I reiterates the following policies and guidelines on the opening of classes this SY 2022-2023 in order to ensure that SDOs and schools are given necessary information on how to manage certain situations involving COVID 19 and other infectious diseases:

   

📝Public schools already offering 5-day in-person classes during the last quarter of SY 2021-2022 shall continue to do the same this school year. 


📝Schools shall have transitioned to 5-day face-to-face classes by November 2, 2022.

📝Schools shall have transitioned to 5-day face-to-face classes by November 2, 2022. To give schools ample time for the transition, the following alternative delivery modalities may be adopted from August 22, 2022 to October 31, 2022:


    i. Blended Learning (3-day F2F classes and 2-day distance learning or 4-day F2F classes and 1-day distance learning)


    ii. Full Distance Learning


📝Implementation of 5 day face to face classes

While there are options to adopt from August 22-October 31, 2022, schools are highly encouraged to implement 5-day face-to-face classes starting August 22, 2022.


📝Time allotment for in-person classes

The time allotment for in-person classes shall be based on DepEd Order No. 21, s. 2019. 


📝Double-shift classes

Schools are allowed to implement double-shift classes subject to the provisions of DepEd Order No. 41, s. 2012. 


📝Schools are directed to implement a contextualized set of strategies and interventions as part of the Learning Recovery and Continuity Plan. The LRCP shall focus on learning remediation, socio-emotional functioning, mental health, & well-being, and professional development for teachers. 


📝Phil-IRI shall be administered

Teachers shall develop and administer diagnostic tests to identify the learning gaps of learners. Likewise, the Phil-IRI shall be administered during the first two months of classes (pretest) and during the last two months of the school year (posttest). 


📝The use of Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELCs) shall continue

The Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELCs) shall continue to apply for SY 2022-2023.




📝Suggested Measures to Foster Academic Ease shall continue

The provisions of OUCI-2020-307 entitled Suggested Measures to Foster Academic Ease during the COVID 19 Pandemic shall continue to apply as part of promoting mental wellness. 



📝Career guidance activities may be held in-person or hybrid

Career guidance activities which may be held in-person or hybrid shall be conducted between August and December to guide junior high school learners in making informed career choices.


📝The use of Daily Lesson Plan/Log



Teachers handling full face-to-face classes shall prepare Daily Lesson Plan/Log as per DO 42, s. 2016. Those handling blended learning classes shall continue to use the Weekly Learning Plan or they may also prepare DLL (for F2F sessions) and Home Learning Plan (for distance learning sessions). 


📝School canteens may resume their operations.

School canteens may resume their operation subject to the provisions of DO 8, s. 2007 and DO 13, s. 2017. However, schools shall establish guidelines to ensure strict adherence to health protocols. 


📝There shall be no discrimination between vaccinated and unvaccinated school personnel and learners. Especially under COVID 19 Alert Level 1 status, unvaccinated teachers may return to the traditional style of teaching starting August 22, 2022. Same provision applies to non-teaching personnel. However, DepEd personnel are highly encouraged to be vaccinated since studies suggest that parents feel safer if the schools of their children have a high rate of vaccination. Moreover, regular submission of negative antigen test results may be required under higher COVID 19 alert level status. 


📝Physical distancing shall be implemented whenever possible.



    Physical distancing helps limit the spread of COVID-19 – this means we keep a distance of at least 1m from each other and avoid spending time in crowded places or in groups.

    Protect yourself and others.​ Break the chain of transmission.



📝There is no set class size for each classroom.

There is no set class size for each classroom.  School heads, however, are directed to observe due diligence in setting class size in their respective schools in consideration of the prevailing condition in their areas.
