Good day,

DepEd TV is on the test broadcast in IBC 13 and Solar Learning Channel.

Before the test broadcasting, I would like to know there's an agreement between PCOO, DepEd, MTRCB and Solar regarding to the flexible learning system?

As an agency to monitor the TV programs, I would like to know the ratings in every TV programs?

What will the actions of the agency if there's any violations which is not suitable for elementary and high school students about the tv program?

Thank you and keep safe.

We write in reply to your FOI request we received in our portal regarding the showing of DepEd modules for learning on some television channels.

We are pleased to inform you that MTRCB was invited to join several discussions with regard to the proposed blended learning of DepEd, specifically with the use of television as one of the mediums of instruction.

Thus, consistent with Section 7 of Presidential Decree No. 1986 and in line with our effort to contribute to society in this time of pandemic, all broadcast by DepEd, being  government-produced materials are exempted from review and classification with the MTRCB.

Should you have any further concerns With regard to this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
