DepEd gets tablets for recovery of school docs damaged by ‘Yolanda’

The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TIKA) recently donated 40 Samsung tablets to the Department of Education (DepEd) to help the agency recover what was left of the documents in the schools ravaged by super typhoon Yolanda.

?Restoring and preserving records is just as important as providing education. The most affected group here are graduating students,? explained DepEd assistant secretary Reynaldo D. Laguda.

With the 40 tablets on hand, the DepED said would be able to properly document school records which were soaked, soiled, or totally destroyed. The project also ensures the longevity of school documents from being further damaged by such calamities.

The effort has four major phases, starting with the deployment of division-assigned personnel for the capturing of documents in the affected schools. The data would then be off-loaded to the home divisions for proper reviewing and renaming of the files.

Once the files have been recorded and accounted for, they will be distributed back to the individual schools for their own record keeping. Once the system is in place, it will then be replicated for the schools and other division offices as disaster risk mitigating initiative.
