The Department of Education (DepEd) will replace printed self-learning modules (SLMs) damaged by the recent typhoons, an education official said Monday.

“The list is being validated by our Disaster Risk Reduction Management Services Team and Bureau of Learning Resources teams. Let’s wait for the validation process first,” DepEd Undersecretary for Finance Annalyn Sevilla said in a text message to reporters.

While she did not disclose an estimated amount yet, Sevilla said the DepEd Central office’s finance unit will release additional funds for the replacement or reproduction of damaged SLMs.

“We are also considering digital copies but only for areas/regions/divisions/schools certified by the Regional Directors to be needing such and in compliance with the contextualized Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan of the schools,” she added.

Earlier, Education Secretary Leonor Briones drew flak when she said that learners can iron or dry under the sun their soaked learning modules following the onslaught of Super Typhoon Rolly. (PNA)
