The Schools Division Office of Cavite Province formed a special team for the monitoring of class opening and the provision of the most immediate curriculum, facilities, and medical and dental needs to far-flung schools.

Cavite Province Schools Division Superintendent Cherrylou Repia led the team composed mainly of medical and dental officers.

Since the opening of classes for SY 2018-2019 and up to date, SDS Repia has already visited more than 40 schools.

Most of the schools were observed for any operations and governance issues and concerns and were given due commendation or technical assistance, while students of selected schools received complete medical and dental services which was also extended to parents such as in Guitasin Primary School.

During one of the team’s visits, an upgrade of one of the Division’s three primary schools has been worked out.

Guitasin PS is expected to accommodate grades 5 and 6 by July 2 as agreed during SDS Repia’s meeting with the concerned parents, school head, teachers, and public schools district supervisor.

In support of Guitasin PS’ conversion into a complete elementary school, DepEd Cavite distributed a television and school supplies for its pupils.

SDS Repia aims to extend the monitoring of far-flung schools for the whole school year to have a better grasp of the school scenario and deliver the most prompt and appropriate assistance possible. (Rey Ann M. Maramag, PDO I/ DIO)
