The advocacy material on family and community engagement in time of COVID-19 was developed under the Strengthening Delivery of Multigrade Program in Region 8 (SDMG R8) expansion project – a tripartite cooperation project among UNICEF, DepEd and SEAMEO INNOTECH to support DepEd’s Basic Education-Learning Continuity Plan.
The advocacy material, written in Filipino, entitled “Ang Pamilya at Komunidad bilang Learning Partners sa Panahon ng COVID-19,” aims to engage parents, family and community members as learning partners under the ‘new normal’ set-up that we are in today due to the pandemic. The material offers practical tips to help the family and community members become more effective learning partners of their children and students. The tips and core messages revolve around maintaining quality education, and a safe, happy, and inclusive learning environment using remote learning strategies. Considering that many schools are implementing home-based learning, modular-based and online learning delivery, practical tips on online safety are also provided by this advocacy material.
