Pampanga hands over P42M worth of bond papers to DepEd schools
The Pampanga provincial government has distributed P42 million worth of bond papers to 561 public schools to be used by the Department of Education (DepEd) to produce self-learning modules under the distance learning program.
Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda turned over the amount for the purchase of 274,082 reams of bond papers to DepEd.
It was funded by the provincial government through its Special Education Fund (SEF), according to a Punto Central Luzon report.
“Eto yung commitment ng provincial government in providing quality education despite COVID-19 pandemic,” Pineda was quoted as saying in the report.
A total of 337,230 students are expected to benefit from the bond papers, officials said.
According to DepEd, each learner uses 20-page modules for eight subjects every week for 34 weeks.
That means each learner requires 10 reams of bond paper for the entire year.
