Regional director of Region IV-CALABARAZON, Director Wilfredo Cabral shared a moment with DepEd Quezon supervisors, school heads, and personnel giving technical assistance on how the Learning Continuity Plans will be implemented comes opening of classes slated in August.
The director pointed out that the opening of classes in the new normal among CALABARZON schools is anchored on PIVOT 4A in support to Sulong Edukalidad being pushed by the Central Office.
He explained that the PIVOT 4A is a platform of the region and the 21 divisions in CALABARZON anchored on 4A’s strategic thrusts such as excellence, empowerment, flexibility, and efficiency.
“In line with the PIVOT 4A, we have crafted our Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) as a framework that describes the process on how the most essential competencies and the most fitted teaching modalities will be delivered based on the context of the schools,” the director mentioned.
Director Cabral also discussed the LCP in which the IcLeA framework is its core component that highlights the following: expanding access, improving quality, and mobilizing management and governance of schools.
The said LCP is featured IcLeA components: intent (continuity of education), content (MELC-based learning materials integrating Budget of Work (BOW), and enabling competencies), learning experience (modalities of delivery using IDEA – based learning plans), and assessment which can be diagnostic, formative, summative and authentic, the regional chief said.
“There are 2.5 million learners currently enrolled in region 4A in 3,538 schools within the 21 schools’ division offices. All schools are tasked to submit LCP capturing the local community context and school’s unique situation for relevant delivery of the most appropriate learning modalities among learners,” the director added.
“We need to define the achievements of our learners belonging to different status. Quezon has geographically deprived areas where we have IP, ALS, SPED learners. Schools need to respond to all types of learners. Give them responsive education delivery. Make all of our platforms inclusive in support of the Sulong Edukalidad program of DepEd,” Director Cabral further said.
The director urged the participants to promote enduring partnership with stakeholders.
He urged everyone to look at the LCP as a scheme not only operational in time of Covid 19 pandemic or other calamities, but also as an opportunity for schools to evaluate capacity to maintain and implement plans amid tough times.
Director Cabral mentored the participants on how to operationalize the LCP. He pointed out the following points: Framework or stages of the LCP delivery as explained in the flow chart the he presented, data extraction and processing stage, identification of learning packets, emerging modality preferences, and learners full access to all modalities as revealed in the sequential data validation done.
In a related event, Director Cabral shared a moment with the participants in answering queries, issues and concerns.
