Dayucos said that these inmates voluntarily enrolled themselves in ALS under the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology’s “Tagapangalaga Ko, Guro Ko” program.

Of the 898 total inmates inside the facility, Dayucos said that 35 percent or at least 314 of these were ALS eligible.

For this school year, Dayucos said that the jail facility opens the Senior High School program through the Academic Global Colleges.
