Makati City has reached 100 percent of its enrollment target for the school year 2020-2021 with 77,339 students, Mayor Abigail Binay announced Wednesday.

“We have exceeded last year’s record of 76,599 enrollees,” Binay said in a Facebook post.

Binay has earlier announced the provision of learner’s package and educational supplies for some 85,000 public students, as well as brand new laptops for 2,500 public school teachers in Makati, as the city ramped up efforts for the distance learning modality.

“To me, this mirrors the enthusiasm and drive of our students to continue learning,” she said.

Binay said the local government will extend all kinds of support the continuation of student’s education by all means “whether online, offline or without the need of any gadget” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“To our #ProudMakatizen students, know that we are behind you all the way,” she added.

Meanwhile, the city government urged the residents with four-year-old children to enroll in the pre-kindergarten classes until August 31.

The parents can use the Makati online enrollment application via website link: bit.ly/prek12makati.

For further inquiries, parents should coordinate with the school’s principal or to the school’s enrolment focal person, where they wish to enroll their children.

Earlier, President Rodrigo Duterte has signed Republic Act 11480 on Friday (July 17) adjusting the school calendar due to the prevailing health crisis.

Department of Education Secretary Leonor Briones, meanwhile said once the academic calendar officially opens on August 24, a “safe back-to-school program” will be implemented. (PNA)
