Just recently I had a meeting with the Local School Board chaired by the Local Chief Executive to discuss and resolve problems arising from increasing number of students, requiring the hiring of additional teachers and the source of funds for it.

The problem arise from the Department of Education circular ordering the implementation of NO COLLECTION POLICY as per DepEd order No. 19, series of 2008 which tells that the payment of authorized but voluntary contributions such as; BSP, GSP, Red Cross, Anti-TB and PTCA or PTA donations will no longer be collected in all public and secondary schools. In which Rizal Elementary School alone will be needing three (3) contractual teachers for the addition of classes on grades one, two and three in order to lessen the number of pupils in every classes from 70 to 45 pupils per section. As requested by Mrs. Ofelia de Mesa RES principal.

The purpose is to upgrade the quality of education in our school by means of lessening the number of students per classroom. RES and its PTCA will be heavily affected by this DepEd order because salaries intended for the three extension teachers relies only from PTCA donations.

However , the proposed additional four (4) contractual teachers needed for Rizal Elementary School, Pook Elementary School, Antipolo Elementary School and Cristobal S. Conducto Memorial High School (formerly RNHS) will be taken from funds of the Local School Board. And on July 15,2008 the Sangguniang Bayan enbanc already approved the Memorandun of Agreement and passed a resolution for the municipal Mayor to enter into a contract between the LGU and the four (4) Contractual teachers.
