The Department of Education Cordillera Administrative Region (DepEd CAR) headed by Regional Director Estela Cariño awarded a plaque of appreciation to the Provincial Government of Benguet headed by Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas for the LGU’s unwavering support and exemplary contribution for the cause of education specifically on the efficient implementation of distance learning in the province.
The plaque was handed over to Governor Diclas by Benguet Schools Division Superintendent Gloria Buyaao and Ms. May Claire Jimenez of DepEd CAR during their courtesy visit to the governor on September 23, 2021.
The three discussed updates and other activities in DepEd as they strengthen their partnership toward the attainment of better education among students in the midst of the pandemic.
Earlier, Governor Diclas mentioned the procurement of P10M worth of tablets to help DepEd advance education despite the COVID-19 crisis. Last year, the Provincial LGU also procured photocopiers donated to the different municipalities to help the public schools in producing learning materials.
