LINGAYEN, Pangasinan — The provincial government of Pangasinan provided more than 30,000 books to the Department of Education (DepEd) Pangasinan 1 and Pangasinan 2 divisions for use of Grade 11 students under the K to 12 program.
Outgoing Governor Amado Espino Jr. distributed the books to concerned education supervisors in the two school divisions right after the weekly flag raising ceremony on Monday.
DepEd Pangasinan 1 information officer Carmina Gutierrez said the governor responded to the request of the two school divisions through their respective resolutions for books of the Grade 11 students in public schools.
She said, “As early as last year despite the fact that the Department of Education provided instructional and learning materials, still, we asked our beloved Governor to give us supplemental reading materials for K to 12.”
Gutierrez noted that all the learning materials provided by the provincial government are aligned to the subjects in the Grade 11 of the K to 12 program.
These books will in turn be distributed to all the schools that comprised the two divisions, she added.
Meanwhile, Gov. Espino said the provincial government under his leadership has been continuously providing assistance as through learning and teaching materials to the DepEd.
In the previous years, he said, they produced teacher’s guide books.
At the same time, he said that the provincial government has been providing assistance to the various primary and secondary schools in the province through the construction and/or repairs of classrooms, toilets, among other infrastructure projects.
