June of every year marks the opening of classes. It is also the start of the rainy season in the Philippines. This is when the Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes, carrier of dengue disease, attack most. Children are the usual victims of this dangerous and deadly dengue disease.
It is for this reason that the Department of Health (DOH) and Department of Education (DepEd) declared June as National Dengue Awareness Month and June 15 as National Dengue Day. It aims to strengthen the campaign against dengue. Since kids spend half their time in school, DepEd supports the drive in preventing dengue in schools.

Life’s journey follows a path towards the most desired destination. This path may come in circle or straight line but along the way are intersections where we meet people or situations to challenge us. Whatever comes along the way your dream or ambition serves as your guiding star and your God- given talent serves as weapon to conquer the obstacles that hinder your progress. This analogy exemplifies the team’s experience to the MTAP Challenge.

AYOS Project aligns to the strategic directions in realizing the Schools Division Office (SDO) vision, mission and core values. AYOS Project serves as a strategic approach in enabling, engaging, and empowering the non-teaching employees to realize the strategic directions.
AYOS Project contributes to the effective and efficient implementation of the DepEd brought about by the Rationalization Program. The infrastructure shift attributed from the rationalization program requires an in-depth understanding on the organizational structure, functions, job designs, policies, procedures, and systems. It needs to be managed well; otherwise, it will affect the SDO’s management, leadership and governance. Stan Davis said “when the infrastructure shifts, everything rumbles”. Hence, managing this organizational change is of prime importance.

What is DepEd’s role in document security and compliance to EO No. 609, series of 2007? This prompted me to ask this question after reading the Regional Advisory dated January 13, 2015 re: Seminar-Workshop on Document Security and Executive Order (EO) No. 608, s. 2007 entitled “Establishing a National Security Clearance System for Government Personnel with Access to Classified Matters and For Other Purposes”.
EO 608 provides that “it is the duty and responsibility of all government departments, agencies and offices to implement security measures that will protect and ensure the integrity and sanctity of classified or sensitive materials or information they have access to or in their possession.” This provision clearly embodies DepEd’s role. However, not all of the DepEd employees are well versed about EO 608, s. 2007. In fact, most of the participants in the seminar admitted having not known the existence of EO 608, s. 2007 until that seminar conducted by NICA.
