PIA Press Release

Negros Oriental public schools ready for June 15 opening

by Jennifer Catan-Tilos

Dumaguete City (28 May) -- The Department of Education (DepEd) Negros Oriental schools division has hosted a regional launching of Brigada Eskwela Plus Caravan this week after the Bais City Pilot School received a nationwide hall of fame award to kick-off the preparations for the school opening of classes on June 15.

The caravan travels from Canlaon City in the north and Bayawan City in the south to converge in Dumaguete City where local government and education department officials from Cebu and Bohol witnessed the signing of a memorandum of agreement.

Brigada Eskwela Plus or the National Community Involvement in Education Initiative aims to enlist the help of the community in cleaning school grounds and repairing classrooms, school furniture and other school facilities year-round.

According to Schools Division Superintendent Milagros Velez Brigada Eskwela has become a movement that has ensured the readiness of public schools for the opening and ensure that the schools are conducive for learning.

Dr. Velez said this DepEd's program is genuine public and private partnership in action bringing together voluntary efforts of parents, teachers, students, local businesses, local government units, NGOs, among others to do minor repairs, maintenance and cleaning up in the schools.

For three consecutive years, Bais City Pilot School won the best school in the Brigada Eskwela project which the DepEd official expected that other schools in the province would copy the community effort made by the parents and other stakeholders of the Bais City Pilot School.

Bais as its model, DepEd Region 7 officials agreed to adopt a school to inspire community partnerships with parents to improve academic performance of school children and lower drop out and cohort survival rates.

Brigada Eskwela Plus is implemented by the department's Adopt-A-School Program National Secretariat and first launched during the incumbency of former DepEd Secretary Jesli Lapus, who, in 2008, successfully urged all 44,619 public elementary and high schools to join Brigada Eskwela.
