The Department of Education (DepEd) announced on Friday that opening of classes for School Year (SY) 2018-2019 in all public schools nationwide is on June 4 (Monday).
The education department is set to reactivate the Natiknal Oplan Balik Eskwela (OBE) for School Year 2018-2019 from May 21 to June 8.
The OBE will ensure that all learners are properly enrolled and able to attend school on the first day of classes, says Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones. It addresses problems, queries and other concers commonly encountered by the learners at the start of the year.
Under the OBE, the DepEd-Central Office (CO) shall set up the OBE Information and Action Center (IAC) at the Bulwagan ng Karunugan which shall serve as the information and complaints processing and routing zone for the duration of the project. Likewise, regional and division offices are encouraged to set up a command center to receive and respond to concerns directly from the ground.
