Schools across the province of Bohol are expected to conduct make-up classes in lieu of class suspensions due to the two-day nationwide transport strike starting Monday.
Desiderio Deligero, School Governance and Operations Division chief of the Department of Education (DepEd)-Bohol said on Tuesday that schools are allowed to decide when the classes will be held.
These can be conducted on Saturdays with the approval from the DepEd, said Deligero.
As stipulated in DepEd Order No. 25, schools are expected to have 195 class days throughout the schoolyear.
Schoolyear 2017-2018 is comprised of 204 school days inclusive of a five-day in-service training for teachers and four-day parent-teacher conferences divided and conducted each quarter.
The same DepeEd order mandates the conduct of make-up classes to replace suspensions due to official fiestas and calamities with the approval of school officials and parent-teacher associations.
According to Deligero, semestral break starts next week and only teachers are expected to be in school for the midyear assessment and in-service training from October 23 to 27.
Meanwhile, quarterly exams are set to be administered on October 19 and 20, he said. (Rey Tutas)
