THE EFFECT OF COVID - 19 TO EDUCATION

The novel Corona Virus (COVID - 19) has disrupted the lives of every individual globally bringing uncertainties, forcing countries to observe government mandated lockdowns and quarantine.  This has brought about drastic modifications to each sector in the community in response to this deadly threat.

Among the most affected by this outbreak is the global educational system which does not spare Foundation University from.  In the Philippines, the Department of Education has been trying its best to address the concerns of parents, teachers and students.  Although the university has been fortunate enough to have finished the academic year 2019 - 2020 a week before the enhanced community quarantine was declared in the province of Negros Oriental, where it is located.

The whole two (2) months of the summer, minors of age 0-20 were not allowed to go out of their homes with the government mandated 24 hour curfew.  while enhanced community quarantine was being effected throughout the country schools were also ordered a 100% closure affecting all students and teachers and employees at the same time.

While foundation university protects the interest of its students health, safety and security, the administration also thought of them being hampered from their studies.  Frequent online discussions and meetings are held daily to be able to come up with online platforms on how best to deliver instructions to the students at the same time coming up with protocols of safety and security for the whole university community.

The administration has decided to open the school year 2020 - 2021 on july 1.  Teachers have been preparing to deliver instructions through various online media platforms.  One of that which has to be solved now is to help find ways for the financially challenged students to obtain internet connections in the areas where they live while considering its limited connectivity in the remote parts of the province.

IN THE MIDST OF A PANDEMIC

It is known globally that the Corona Virus (COVID 19) has greatly affected most if not all organizations  and communities worldwide.  The Philippines, most especially small town Dumaguete, where Foundation Preparatory Academy is being constructed, has not been spared from this outbreak, moreso, that the first ever case in the Philippines came from this city early in January 2020.

National and local government units have declared the Philippines in a state of emergency and has imposed the suspension of non-essential businesses from the last week of March 2020, one of which were construction projects. While Foundation University's thrust was to be able to make use of the Science Wing for the next academic year supposedly opening in June, it had to take a back seat and supported government executive orders. Construction was temporarily suspended as of April 2020 to give more importance to health and safety precautions of the construction workers and the university employees and ensure a safe working environment at the time when the Enhance Community Quarantine is lifted.  This was decided upon by the university administration to help in preventing the spread of the Corona Virus.

In the first three months of the year, the project construction managed to achieve the slabs of the third storey.  To date,  the area is now ready for concreting.  Photos are attached to support this report.  Meanwhile,  the university is preparing safety protocols for the construction workers once the government will allow the continuance of this project.
