“I fervently hope that with these support given by the IPEd program in the Division of Dapitan City, our IP learners will be able to access quality education in this time of the pandemic,” said EPS Florence S. Gallemit in an interview.
Hygiene supplies were also distributed to the schools to ensure that the teaching staff, parents, and learners who will transact in the schools will be able to observe the basic health safety protocols to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The LSAs will be distributed to the 727 IP learners who were experiencing difficulties in answering the modules.
