Mr. Virgilio A. Santos delivered the Inspirational Message in behalf of Dr. Joel T. Torrecampo who attended an equally important activity in the region. He also prepared a topic which entitled “Five (5) Attributes of Successful Schools”. The CID Chief garnered more admiration and loud applause from the private school participants after delivering his relevant and timely topic.
Likewise, Mr. Demie Atienza, Education Program Specialist and Mr. Arius D. Domaoal, Administrative Aide VI from School Governance Operation Division (SGOD), gave some updates on EBEIS/LIS Matters while Mr. Michael P. Rull, Project Development Officer II from Curriculum Implementation Division (CID), talked about the 1 Million Lapis Campaign. They have also entertained questions from the audience more particularly on the schedule and deadlines of the on-line entry of the names of their respective students in the Learning Information System (LIS).
One of the highlights of the meeting was the presentation of Conditions and Requirements in Application for Increase in School Fees with Mr. Allan Eliezer M. Mal-In, Administrative Officer V, as discussant. Since education is the main business of private schools, they are bound to follow some regional guidelines on tuition fee increase so as to protect the best interest of our school children.
Dr. Emma A. Sendiong, EPS for Guidance/Values Education/Private School Coordinator discussed some commonly noted deficiencies of some private schools during the monitoring and evaluation of the division team. Schools who are requesting for a permit to operate within a school year are being evaluated and monitored in terms of curriculum and facilities in accordance with Dep-Ed policies and guidelines.
The Division Quarterly Meeting with the Private Schools of San Juan City was indeed a success because of the concerted efforts of the working team who unselfishly shared their expertise and availability to make it happen.
