The Department of Education (DepEd) Central Office, through its designated focal person, confirmed the DepEd Computerization Program (DCP) readiness of the four stand-alone senior high schools in the Schools Division of Imus City.

Mr. Arturo D. Tuazon, the officer-in-charge of DCP from DepEd CO, evaluated and validated the DCP readiness of Gen. Flaviano Yengko SHS, Gen. Juan Castañeda SHS, Gen. Pantaleon Garcia SHS and Gov. Juanito Remulla SHS during the one-day activity on August 5.

Tuazon checked the schools’ DCP readiness through the status of their e-classroom, available security, school partnership with barangay, availability of tables and chairs, and electrical wirings.

He was accompanied by Division ICT Officer Mr. June Bence L. Adelan.

In an interview, Tuazon said he was elated to personally see how ready the schools are in giving priority to DepEd DCP.

“Natuwa talaga ko kasi maayos yung apat nating pinuntahan,” he said, adding that he will come back to Imus City for future ICT-related activities.

Adelan, meanwhile, said he was surprised with Tuazon’s remarks and got more motivated to further improve the implementation of DCP in SDO Imus City.

The ICT officer shared that one of DepEd’s primary goals is to transform education by providing public schools with appropriate technologies that would enhance the teaching-learning process and meet the challenges of the 21st century.

“Kayang mag-transform ng education sa Imus kasi bukod sa DCP ay suportado rin tayo ng city government through Project Emmanuel na nagbibigay priority sa e-learning,” Adelan said.
