Regional Secretary Atty Jamar M. Kulayan signs DepEd-ARMM Regional Memorandum number 264, s . 2014, for the adoption of Weblog-based documentation and reporting system for selected programs.

"Weblog-Based Program Documentation, Reporting and Cross-Learning System is the use of online technology particularly free weblog service to track program progress, promote cross learning and continuous improvement among implementers, and engage the wider community in the spirits of transparency, democratic participation and accountability.

This innovative system will cover Special Programs in the Arts (SPA), Sports (SPS), Journalism (SPJ) and Foreign Languages (SPFL); Strengthened Technical and Vocational Education Program (STVEP); Science, Technology and Engineering Program (STEP) and Senior High School Program (SHS).

To operate this system, Implementing Schools assign one program teacher, who is internet literate, to collate and upload school data into the weblog on a monthly basis; provided all school data shall have prior scrutiny of and approval from the school head. School heads, teachers and students who have access to the internet shall be encouraged to visit, benchmark their school performance and express their opinions and comments in the weblog’s comment box. In expressing opinions and responding to other comments, propriety shall be observed all the time. When the internet in the locality is slow, implementing schools may burn a CD and submit the same to the Regional Office. All compliance and non-compliance will be acknowledged in the weblog.

BPI: ARMM to introduce four special programs in 23 public high schools

Zamboanga City (20 August 2014) – The Department of Education in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao will pilot four special programs in 23 public secondary schools in the region this school year to help students develop skills in journalism, arts, sports and foreign language.

Noor Saada, DepEd-ARMM assistant secretary for programs, said the special programs are geared for students with different learning styles to express themselves.

He said it will also help reduce the number of drop-outs as students who are otherwise bored with the regular secondary program will have other additional motivations to finish school and pursue their interest.

DepEd-ARMM is working with ARMM’s Bureau of Public Information, Bureau on Cultural Heritage, Regional Sports Coordinating Office and the Bureau of Madaris Education in the implementation of the program.

School heads and teachers who will handle the programs attended a three-day orientation on 12-14 August that included enrichment activities provided by resource persons from DepEd-ARMM’s partner agencies.

“They also planned how this program will take shape or will be implemented in their schools in terms of classroom management, school operation, division technical assistance and regional policy and resource support,” Saada said.

He said the special programs will be introduced to classes of 35 Grade 7 students who will exhibit inclination or interest in the selected skills.

ARMM Education Secretary Jamar Kulayan said they are committed to provide policy and resource support to the schools where the programs will be piloted. (Bureau of Public Information)
