SDO Lucena held a three-day training on the conduct of Learning Action Cell (LAC) at Lucena City Teachers and Employees Conference Center (LCTECC), Lucena City, April 23 to 25.

Participants included 114 teachers, 54 elementary and secondary school heads, 10 Public Schools District Supervisors, 5 SGOD personnel and 10 Education Program Supervisors.

SDO Lucena through the Division LAC Technical Working Group aimed to retool EPS, PSDS, School Heads and School LAC members on the conduct of LAC in the district and in school. The program also  targerted to identify professional development needs and prioritizing issues to be discussed or addressed in the LAC Session. In addition, the roll-out became a platform to give technical assistance on how to craft a LAC plan as well as write a LAC Session Guide.

“Schools can conduct LAC creatively not merely discussion as long as it promotes professional learning that emphasizes reflection and collaboration,” Chinita A. Tolentino, the leadoff of LAC in the division said.

Participants remarked that the program was very well organized. Topics were also relevant to the training and very essential to school heads, instructional leaders and teachers who will lead in conducting LAC. Furthemore, facilitaors were very involved in monitoring group work activities thus all sessions were finely executed. (Maria Corazon A. Rubio, OIC- LCNHS, Mayao Castillo Annex, Lucena City)
