ADOPT A SCHOOL

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

It is an ac­cepted re­al­ity that ed­u­ca­tion of a child is not the sole re­spon­si­bil­ity of the school. Pub­lic schools need the sup­port of var­i­ous part­ners in en­sur­ing that com­plete and qual­ity ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion is pro­vided to the school chil­dren. It en­cour­ages to es­tab­lish strong tie and mu­tual re­la­tion­ship with var­i­ous stake­hold­ers.

Repub­lic Act 8525 or known as the Adopt-a-School Act of 1998 and of Rev­enue Reg­u­la­tions No. 10-2003 gives op­por­tu­ni­ties for stake­hold­ers to be part of the no­ble goal of erad­i­cat­ing the ex­is­tence of the ig­no­rance among the fu­ture cit­i­zen of our coun­try.

De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion col­lab­o­rates with the Bureau of In­ter­nal Rev­enue to grant in­cen­tives to the pri­vate part­ners of DepEd such as tax de­duc­tion of Gross In­come of pri­vate in­dus­tries who give their fi­nan­cial re­sources to the pub­lic schools.

In the end, the main goal of Adopt A School Pro­gram is to look for part­ners in pro­vid­ing qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion among the learn­ers in a safe, con­ducive and a child-friendly en­vi­ron­ment. The part­ner­ship will give a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact in the lives of the school ad­min­is­tra­tors, teach­ers and es­pe­cially the learn­ers.
