Cabinet members are scheduled to deliberate plans on how to proceed with the dry run of limited face-to-face classes in select jurisdictions without compromising the safety of students and faculty.

According to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, the issue will be part of the agenda of the Cabinet on Monday, Feb. 22.

“Inaasahan po natin na pag-uusapan muli sa Cabinet meeting sa Lunes ang pilot limited face-to-face schooling ng ating mga kabataan,” Roque said.

At the briefing, Education Secretary Leonor Briones said her department was preparing in case the president approves the pilot test the resumption of face-to-face or in-person classes.

Briones backed their proposal with a survey conducted by the Department of Education (DepEd), which she said showed that “more than 50 percent” of students are in favor of attending in-person classes.
