MANILA, May 25 — Balik Eskwela Information and Action Center Task Force (OBE-IAC) will be launched again to ensure the smooth return of students on June 3.

The undertaking will be helpful in providing information and handling complaints of teachers, parents and students.

“Every school year, we implement Oplan Balik Eskwela to facilitate an orderly school opening. But beyond that, OBE is part of our commitment to Education For All (EFA) goals,” said secretary Br. Armin Luistro of the Department of Education (DepEd) in a statement.

“The department has been serious in addressing the problems in basic education, having already addressed the gaps in some of the learning resources such as school seats and textbooks where zero backlogs have already been achieved,” Luistro added.

He also disclosed that shortages in classrooms, teachers, and water and sanitation facilities will also be addressed before the year ends.

Luistro also encouraged the active involvement of the different field offices of the department.

He instructed all regional directors and school division superintendents to designate their their senior staff and two action officers who will oversee regional and local concerns, and coordinate these concerns with the central office.

OBE-IAC will be open from May 27 to June 7, including Saturday and Sunday, from 7am-6pm, at the Bulwagan ng Karunungan, DepEd Complex, Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. (PNA)
