The Department of Education (DepEd) has announced the official start of its annual clean up drive or ‘Brigada Eskwela’ in preparation for the opening of classes for School Year 2019-2020.
This year’s school clean up efforts will run from May 20 to 25 which aims to “bring together all education stakeholders to participate and contribute their time, effort, and resources to prepare public schools for the opening of classes.”
Likewise, Education Secretary Leonor Briones announced through DepEd Memorandum No. 029 series of 2019 the launching of Oplan Balik Eskwela (OBE).
The OBE is a collaborative effort of government agencies and organizations as well as other stakeholders for the opening of the school year.
“The OBE is part of the Department’s efforts to ensure that learners are already properly enrolled and able to attend school by the first day of classes,” Briones said in the memo.
Oplan Balik Eskwela will run from May 27 to June 7.
