Teachers to man polls are infotech capable, says DepEd

Pasig City (4 May) -- The Department of Education assures that at least one of the three members of the Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs) in every precinct has the capability to perform their task professionally in the historic first automated elections in the country.

This follows after 137,200 teachers were certified as information technology capable by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), posting an average passing rate of 91%.

"The DOST Certification Program for BEIs is an important step to ensure the success of the first automated elections in the country. With all the trainings and seminars they had, our teachers are fully prepared to perform their electoral duties," Education Secretary Mona Valisno stressed.

Identified BEI?s across the country, including Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and those in Singapore and Hong Kong took the written and actual test on the operation of PCOS machine administered by DOST.

"Hopefully this certification reduce, if not, take away any doubts for the coming May elections and boost our confidence for an orderly election," Valisno added.

DepEd also conducted a training/orientation on automated elections among its administrative and legal officers around the country to enhance their awareness and readiness for the elections.

The DOST Certification Program for Board of Election Inspectors is pursuant to the Amended Law on Automated Election System (R.A. 9369). (DepEd) [top]
