Colleges, Universities to Start Classes on June 9 as Scheduled


Byline: JOEL C. ATENCIO

Classes in colleges and universities will open on June 9 as scheduled, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) said yesterday.

But some colleges have scheduled either an early or late opening of classes. For example, the government-run Philippine Normal University (PNU) will open its Manila campus on June 16.

Education Secretary Edilberto de Jesus announced the other day that the opening of regular classes in many public and private elementary and secondary schools has been reset to June 16 to allow teachers and parents to undergo beginning on June 9 seminars on the prevention of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

Public school teachers and students are also expected to join the 105th Philippine Independence Day on June 12.

All private and public elementary and secondary schools nationwide will open on June 9. All teachers will be required to report to school starting on that day. But classes will not be held, and the children are not yet expected to go to school. School health personnel and school heads will orient parents and teachers on health issues from June 9 to 12, De Jesus said.

Outgoing CHED Chairwoman Ester A. Garcia said the collegiate school days must consist of not less than 18 weeks per semester and six weeks for summer classes, excluding Christmas, semestral, and summer breaks.

DLSU president Bro. Rolly Dizon, FSC, will take over as CHED chairman on June 1. He is expected to focus on improving the skills and competence of graduates to prepare them for the domestic and global labor markets.

Brother Rolly (Dizon) is a forwardlookinng type of an educator. He will not hesitate to pursue improving the quality of education, said Presidential Assistant 1 for Education Secretary Mona Valisno.
