Flexible Delivery of Student Services during the Covid-19 Pandemic
With the closure of campuses and suspension of face to face classes brought about by the COVID 19 pandemic, CCDC had to design a way to connect to its students in order to ensure the continuity of learning. Given the predominantly mountainous terrain of the Benguet Province, where access to the internet or online learning is very limited, drop off & pick up centers were established in various strategic places of Benguet. These are safe and accessible centers where students, on arranged schedules can pick up their learning modules, submit their learning outputs, enroll, pay their fees and pick up school documents among others. This is done through the help of the members of the community and partner agencies particularly the Local Government Units and Police Stations of the various Municipalities. The LGUs provide the space for scheduled off-site enrolment and student and parent consultations while Municipal Police Stations serve as drop-off and pick up centers for the learning packs/modules. During the enhanced community quarantine where students mobility was restricted, police officers and local officials, being APOR or authorized persons outside of residence, served as mailman or couriers of modules to students who live in far flung areas of Benguet.
