Menchie Abalos distributes laptops, tablets for distance learning
Mandaluyong Mayor Menchie Abalos made sure teachers and students in the city have gadgets to use for distance learning this school year.
Abalos recently distributed 2,300 laptops for teachers and 41,000 tablets for students from grade four to senior high school.
The budget for procuring the laptops and tablets came from the P557-million special education fund (SEF) of the mayor’s office.
Abalos’ daughter, Councilor Charisse Abalos Vargas, said Rep. Neptali Gonzales II also gave P23 million additional budget for maintenance and other operating expenses.
“Hangad po ng ating Lungsod na patuloy na maibigay ang maayos at dekalidad na edukasyon sa pamamagitan ng distance learning ngayong panahon ng pandemya,” she said in a Facebook post.
