School in Mandaue uses drop box to enroll students with no internet

ON THE third week of enrollment at the Cesar Cabahug Elementary School (CCES) in Brgy. Looc, Mandaue City, the school authorities placed a drop box to enroll students who do not have internet access.

The enrollment schedule for the school year 2020-2021 is from June 1 to 30, 2020.

During the first two weeks, the enrollment was conducted online.

Nancy Lucenas, the principal of CCES, said the drop box can be found at the school’s gate and those who want to enroll their child simply have to fill out an enrollment form placed beside the drop box.

After filling it out, the form will be dropped in the drop box. Dropping the form in the drop box is good as enrolled, Lucenas said.

Every day, the teacher-in-charge for each grade collects the forms.

Apart from the drop box and online, the school teachers will call the parents of the students who do not have internet access.

Lucenas said that in the enrollment form, parents will answer what their preferred mode of teaching is for their child.

Based on the enrollment data obtained, 100 of the enrollees want to have online classes, 400 want modular methods, while 90 want modular and online classes.

Lucena explained that online means the parent prefers to have the class online.

Modular means that the school will provide students with self-learning kits or worksheets.

Lucena said the teachers in their school are already preparing self-learning kits for students.

In the previous school year, there were 1,324 students enrolled in the school, and more than half of them enrolled for the next school year. (KFD)
