DAVAO CITY — The Department of Education regional office (DepEd-XI) is setting up a mechanism for community-based monitoring and learning help desk requiring class advisers to have a regular schedule of a compliance check of learners that will strategically and randomly monitor the attendance of learners.
The establishment of the mechanism was the result of the Oplan Balik Eskwela monitoring after the regional monitors have found out from the teachers that some learners were not in their homes to read and study the modules.
This after Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio called on DepEd to make sure that their learners are inside their homes during class hours as many quarantine violators are students.
DepEd XI Regional Director Evelyn R. Fetalvero issued the memorandum to ensure that learners are at home doing their expected tasks while facilitated by their parents or guardians.

It says DepEd schools class advisers must have a regular schedule of compliance checks of students and their performance tasks according to their modules.
Included in the memorandum issued was the establishment of community-based monitoring and learning help desk system to address the needs of learners, teachers, parents, and stakeholders. It is responsible for receiving and processing information, issues, concerns, or complaints coming from all sectors relative to the implementation of the curriculum and other educational concerns under the new normal.
