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.

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.
