THE DEPARTMENT of Education (DepED) in Region 6 will conduct a two-day conference-workshop on the revised criteria for the selection of Brigada Eskwela Best School Implementors from April 25 to 26 in this city.

Dr. Eden Deriada said the activity will be participated by some 150 Adopt-A-School Program/Brigada Eskwela coordinators, selected elementary and secondary school principals, and district supervisors from the 18 divisions of the region.

Aside from updates on the revised criteria, Deriada said the activity will provide a venue to ask and hear the experiences and best practices of participants in implementing the program in their respective schools.

Since 2004, the DepEd has been recognizing the Brigada Eskwela Best Implementors through the Adopt-A- School program.

The ASP Secretariat has revised the criteria as a result of the consultation meeting with the ASP Regional Coordinators in November last year at Cebu City and as part of its effort to further improve the selection process, according to a DepEd press report.

The revised criteria will be implemented this school year 2012-2013.

In a national awarding held last year, two schools from the region were recognized as Brigada Eskwela Hall of Fame awardees after they were chosen as Best School Implementors in the region for three consecutive years. These are the Minuyan Elementary School of Murcia in Negros Occidental and Maayon National High School in Maayon, Capiz.

Brigada Eskwela, also known as the National Schools Maintenance, ensures that public schools in the country are ready for the opening of school year in June through the support and cooperation of all education stakeholders both from the private and public sectors. This year, it will be held from May 21 to 26.
