DepEd prohibits giving exams, quizzes during bad weather days

Teachers are prohibited to give short test, quizzes and examination to students whenever there is a weather disturbance resulting in heavy rains

Through Memorandum No. 15 issued by the Department of Education Taguig-Pateros Division, teachers are prohibited to conduct examination to their students, especially during typhoon.

The said directive will also give parents the power to decide whether to allow their children to go to school amid heavy rains and flood.

DepEd SDS Danilo Gutierrez said that through this memorandum, we could avoid accidents and limit the worries of parents for their kids ending up with poor grades of not attending class.

Gutierrez explained no examination should be administered to learners whenever there is a typhoon signal raised by Pagasa in Metro Manila or on days when moderate to heavy rains is anticipated.

“In the event that an examination, short quiz or long test was scheduled and actually administered despite the prevalence of moderate to heavy rains, students who failed to report to school are entitled to take a special examination the next regular class day in order not to affect their academic performance,” the memo added.

Should they fail to do so, these teachers “will have to explain in writing the reason for not acknowledging the excuse slip,” the memo warned.

Paano po kung online quiz ang ibinigay? Hindi po kasi lahat nakaconnect sa WiFi or may internet connection. But may teachers na pag nagsuspend ng klase, itinutuloy ang quiz online.
