Mabilog pushes for more integrated schools

Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog proposed for establishment of more integrated schools to bring basic education closer to constituents.

He pushed for the conversion of Andres Bonifacio Elementary School to Andres Bonifacio Integrated School which was approved by President Benigno Aquino III last Dec. 29, 2015.

“Now our students from the city proper area and surrounding areas can just walk to their high school instead of riding to school at a distance from their homes,” stressed Mabilog.

An integrated school offers complete basic education from Kindergarten to Grade 10 or 12 under the K to 12 program.

The mayor noted he received a text message from the President informing him of the approval. He received Feb. 4 a communication letter dated Jan. 6 from Malacañang Records Office.

Mabilog also thanked Cong. Jerry Treñas for sponsoring the bill in congress.

Mabilog also recommended for the conversion of Cubay and Sambag elementary schools to integrated schools to serve the increasing number of students in Jaro district. [via Iloilo City PIO]
