LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – Enrollment in the different public and private schools around the Cordillera continues to increase as late enrollees continue to flock to the various basic education institutions following the opening of classes last October 5, 2020.

May Eclar, regional director of the Cordillera office of the Department of Education (DepEd-CAR), said that based on the latest data from the different division offices, there is a total of 400,105 enrollees who are now attending classes under the various types of blended learning for the present schoolyear but the said figure is expected to increase in the coming weeks due to the ongoing acceptance of late enrollees.

However, she disclosed that this year enrollment represents 86.61 percent of the enrollment in the different public and private schools last year which was pegged at 461,935.

Director Eclar stated that the enrollment could possibly increase in the coming weeks because of the continuous surge of late enrollees in the different schools in the region as the education department still welcomes late enrollees up to November 21, 2020 for them to be able to catch up with the lessons that had been provided under the present blended learning set up to prevent the children from being exposed to the dreaded Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). That had virtually changed the way of life of the people in the world. By HENT
