OFFICIAL STATEMENT
On opening of schools for SY 2020-2021
April 24, 2020



The following is a verbatim report on the statement made by Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque and Acting NEDA Secretary Karl Chua:

Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque:
Mayroon po kasing batas na nagsasabi na ang opening of classes ay dapat Hunyo hanggang Agosto. Pero ang rekomendasyon po ng IATF, ang pinakamaaga pong pagbukas ng klase ay sa Setyembre, paano po ito Secretary (Chua)?

Acting NEDA Secretary Karl Chua:
Actually, gusto ko po iclarify na tama po, may batas po at yung napresent po kanina ay for consideration lamang kasi po iyan ang lumalabas sa ating health study.

Ang gusto po iparating ng DepEd ay magprepresent sila sa IATF ng kanilang recommendation para sumunod tayo sa batas. Anyway, hanggang end of August pwede naman po.

Hintayin na lang natin ang DepEd para magpresent at yung IATF ang magsasabi kung policy na.

PS Roque:
So ibig sabihin the recommendation the earliest is September but subject to compliance with the law and recommendation of DepEd.

Malinaw po iyon.

DepEd makes no further comment.
