DAGUPAN CITY — The Department of Education (DepEd) will implement starting September 16 the reassignment of 15 schools’ division superintendents (SDS) in Region 1 (Ilocos) who are more than three years in their position.

DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones signed the order for the reassignment of division heads last month.

The following are the new assignments of the schools division superintendents in Pangasinan, La Union, Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte: Maria Celia Fernandez will assume as SDS of the Division of Dagupan City; Lorna Bugayong to the Division of Alaminos City; Danilo Sison of Alaminos City to Division of Pangasinan II; Donato Balderas, Jr. of Pangasinan II to Division of La Union; Danilo Sison of Alaminos City to Pangasinan II; Gloria Torres of Urdaneta City to San Carlos City.

Deped region 1 director Malcom Garma earlier said the reassignment of division heads is a policy of DepEd.

“One thing is definite, everybody will move just within the region. Exemption for those who are retiring for the next or within six months or those who have just been transferred,” he said.  Liwayway Yparraguirre / PNA – norrthboundasia.com
