August 10, 2020 marked the beginning of the Claret Operative Distance Education (CODE) journey as online classes started at Claret School of Quezon City. Grades 1, 2, and 3 and the Senior High School were the first ones to embark on this distance learning while the other levels including those in the Child Study Center followed during the next few days.
With more than 2,100 students, Claretian education at CSQC has taken a new mode using the cloud-based Microsoft Office 365. Students have been oriented on the features of MS Office and the teachers assisted them on the proper navigation of the platform.
The online journey was not that easy but through the collaborative efforts of the entire CSQC community—from the administrators, teachers, and support staff whether working from home or those on-site—the first two weeks were hurdled successfully. The entire process was ably guided by the Technical Working Group (TWG), the ICTO support staff and RAKSO-CT.
The road towards the beginning of this school year was established by engaging the parents, students and the personnel in an online survey particularly on their readiness in distance education mode. The School also submitted to the Department of Education the Learning Continuity Plan (LCP) and the proposed school calendar.
Amidst the limitations brought about by the pandemic, School Year 2020-2021 has started and the Claretian mission to educate remains dauntless as ever.
