ZAMBOANGA CITY, 23 June 2017 by Vic Larato—The local  government here through the city’s  School Board is now in the process of procuring 40,000 armed chairs that will be equally distributed to all public schools in the city.

 

This, as the LGU under the administration of Mayor Beng Climaco remains firm to its commitment to education as one of the priorities under the SHE Program for security, health and education.

 

In her weekly guesting at Dateline Teleradyo on TV11, Climaco said 40,000 chairs are coming soon and these will be distributed to all public schools that badly need them.

 

She also advised public school officials, particularly elementary and secondary, to coordinate with DepEd’s Division Office so that they will be included in priority listing for the chairs allocation.

 

“The schools should write DepEd regarding their needs because we are doing proper accounting of facilities that you need,” she said, adding that coordination with DepEd is necessary to ensure equitable distribution of the chairs.

 

Meanwhile, Climaco also advised the schools in the city to prepare their respective contingency plans for emergency situations, especially now that the city of Zamboangais on heightened alert as a result of the still ongoing Marawi siege.

 

She said every school, every home and every business establishment must have a contingency plan for any disaster whether man-made or natural.

 

“We should not take any chances,” she said.

 

The mayor also reiterated her appeal to all barangays to be cautious in the issuance of identification (ID) cards or any documents, to make it sure that they know the people whom they issued IDs.

 

She also asked the barangays no to charge exorbitant fee for an ID or any document certifying the true identity of the person. (Vic Larato)
