TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol June 5 (PIA) --Within the school year, the government through the Department of Education (DepED) would be spending over P786 million just to equip secondary schools with classrooms for the senior high schools. 

Bohol Division School Governance and Operations Chief Desiderio Deligero said the sum comprises of 241 classrooms in Bohol's second district, 226 classrooms in Bohol's Third District and 112 class rooms for the First District. 

At the Kapihan sa PIA last week, Deligero, also said the sum of 579 new classrooms for Bohol's senior high schools have been bid by the public works department and would be erected in 119 school sites all over the province. 

Biggest chunk of budget for classrooms among the districts fall for Congressman Aristotle Aumentado's district with P331,519,345. Congressman Arthur Yap's district comes next with P298, 244,783 while the first district of Congressman Rene Relampagos gets P156,869,535. 

Some of the classrooms are now built, some are still being constructed, but Deligero assures that with the projects already bade out, its completion within the year is assured. 

Of the elementary levels, the earthquake of 2013 ruined a good number of classrooms that the DepED identified 1260 class rooms for replacement in the high schools and 1567 in the elementary. 

For the high schools, the DepEd has completed 268 class room replacements using the Quick Response Fund assistance while an initiative of the Public Private Partnership (PPP) funded 216 of these new classrooms. 

Meanwhile, PAGCOR has constructed 91 standard classrooms this school year, Deligero said. 

As of April 30, he added, the Dep[ED in Bohol has completed 623 replacement classrooms while another 166 have been constructed by interest groups making a total of 789 classrooms readied for the school opening. 

He also said that the rest, or some 622 of the classrooms which have been funded by the newly released batch 3 of the Basic Education Facilities Fund (BEFF).

As for major repairs, DepEd identified 985 classrooms all over Bohol, and as of the last weeks of May, 2015, the repairs, which suffered from lack of available supply material and carpenter construction workers achieved a combined accomplishment of 25%. 

Deligero however is certain these constructions can be completed in time for the end of June. (rac/PIA-7/Bohol)
