12 schools in South Cotabato ready for face-to-face classes


Some 12 schools in South Cotabato are ready for face-to-face classes in the event that the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) will allow their implementation, the local government said.

Quoting Department of Education (DepEd) Schools Division Superintendent (SDS) Ruth Estacio, the local government said the 12 schools are in Lake Sebu and T’Boli.

Lake Sebu and T’Boli have recorded low Covid-19 positive cases, thus, they were selected to hold face-to-face classes.

But DepEd will only allow 20 students per classroom to ensure that the basic minimum health standards are followed, Estacio said.
