From the Office of the Central Student Government
The Office of the Central Student Government expresses its support for fully implementing face-to-face classes. The Sulu State College is still working hard to guarantee a smooth physical classroom changeover.
Senator Pia Cayetano voiced her concerns over the lack of complete face-to-face sessions at five colleges. The college is increasing the number of in-person class sessions available at its campus in several ways. In reality, class sizes are now at maximum capacity, with all enrolled students present for each meeting.
We feel the same urgency as Senator Pia Cayetano on returning to full-time in-person instruction. The college has taken extra measures with the support of the administration and in coordination with the Central Student Government-Supreme Student Council, the highest governing student body at SSC, and the many local student councils to guarantee the safety of returning students and the resumption of classes. After extensive consultation, surveys, and pilot programs, in-person sessions have been implemented, ensuring the best course of action. But the college is meeting the demand for its full complement of students in several ways, including constructing new buildings and expanding existing ones.
Sulu State College continues to deploy total face-to-face capacity. It thus renews our appeal for CHED to release the UniFAST funds due to the college so that service to students may continue without interruption.
