A guide to the new normal schooling for parents of school children in the Philippines has been released by the Department of Education (DepEd).
Preparations for the school year that started on October 5, 2020, have mostly focused on helping teachers and learners cope with the home-based schooling that uses lessons delivered in digital form, on the internet, on radio, and television.
The new handbook supports DepEd’s call for parents and families to be active teaching support for school children who are staying home amid the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic.
DepEd’s Bureau of Learning Delivery Teaching and Learning Division issued the “Parents’ Handbook for the New Normal in Basic Education” to help families understand and cope with their responsibilities in the new learning environment.
The Parents’ Handbook features the following:
- explanation about the choices for learning platforms that parents and children can use
- discussion of the benefits of learning at home
- tips on how to keep children stay with their lessons
- support services for parents who need to understand the lessons better
- practical tips for parents of learners with disabilities
- positive parenting and discipline tips
“It is important that you assess the needs and capabilities of your own child and the quality and quantity of support that you can provide before you decide on the modality that suits your child best,” DepEd said.
