By Zoila Palma: A memo dated today from the Ministry of Education informed all educators and stakeholders that in light of the uncertainty of teachers being exposed, and the short time left for the end of the 2020-2021 academic year, all classes will be closed on June 18, 2021.
Those schools that were conducting face-to-face instruction for this academic year are urged to close classes on June 18.
And in light of education rule 128, the Ministry reminds all managing authorities that students can be allowed to progress each year to the next grade.
In addition, the Ministry is asking schools to develop special assistance programs for students who do not meet some of the expected outcomes at the end of the year.
However, for secondary students, the ministry noted that the determination for promotion and graduation is done in accordance with schools’ policies.
The Ministry asked that managing authorities be ‘reasonable’ and compassionate’ and to adjust school policies to afford students an opportunity to be promoted and to provide the necessary support.
Graduation exercises may be continued in accordance with existing protocols, the ministry noted.
The Ministry says that it continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will be guided by the advice of public health experts.
