3 beses nang panalo! Toby Tiangco cheers as Navotas gets seal of good education governance


Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco has welcomed the city’s achievement as a recipient of the Seal of Good Education Governance (SGEG) from Synergeia Foundation for the third consecutive year.

The city was only one of two local government units in the National Capital Region which were recognized for excellence in education programs.

“We are grateful to our teachers, parents, local school boards, school governing councils and all of our education stakeholders for their steadfast commitment to give Navoteño youth the best education possible, whatever the circumstances are,” Tiangco said.

Last year, Navotas distributed 49,000 NavoSchool-in-a-Box (NavoBox) to carry out the Department of Education’s Learning Continuity Plan for 2020-2021. The NavoBox contained textbooks, self-learning modules, worksheets, lesson guides for parents/guardians, school supplies, and hygiene kits.

The Department of Education recognized NavoBox as a model for blended learning delivery and used as benchmark by other cities nationwide.

The city government has also distributed 3,057 smart phones and 52,740 USB-OTG to public elementary and high school students, 123 laptops for teachers, and one copying machine for each of the 24 public schools in the city.

“We shall continue our efforts to provide our students with quality and inclusive education in spite of the challenges brought about by the pandemic,” Tiangco said.
