MANILA, Philippines — All public schools are ordered by the Department of Education (DepEd) on Friday  to implement asynchronous classes or distance learning from April 15 to 16.

In an advisory, DepEd explained that the two-day asynchronous classes will allow students to complete pending requirements amid the nearing end of school year 2023 to 2024.

“In order to allow learners to complete pending assignments, projects, and other requirements as the end of school year is fast-approaching, all public schools nationwide shall implement asynchronous classes/distance learning on April 15 to 16, 2024,” the education department said.

“Likewise, teaching and non-teaching personnel in all public schools shall not be required to report to their respective stations,” it added.

Activities organized by Regional and Schools Division Offices, however, are excluded from the directive and may still proceed as scheduled.

Private schools are not included in the order, but have the option to implement the directive.

The announcement also came amid consistently high heat index in some areas of the country, which resulted in the suspension of face-to-face classes and the adoption of alternative modes of education.
