Public schools in the City of Manila have exceeded their enrollment target for the upcoming school year as the local government transitions into “blended learning” through distribution of tablets and laptops.
Data from the Manila Division of City Schools (DCS) showed that the enrollment target hit 100.46% with 270,219 enrollees as of Friday, July 3. The target for the year 2020 was 268,972 enrollees.
In a Facebook live broadcast, Manila City Mayor Francisco ‘Isko’ Domagoso thanked the students’ parents for enrolling their children to avail the blended learning offered by the local government.
“Taos-puso ang aking pasasalamat sa lahat ng mga magulang dito sa Lungsod ng Maynila. Maraming salamat at kayo at sumunod sa aking payo na i-enroll ang inyong mga anak,” Domagoso said.
