Furthermore, Mrs. Pono is not just a good teacher, but a brilliant DALSC that encourages her peers to do the same result. With a significant increase in number of learners enrolled in the institution, she made an astounding rapport to reach out towards the OSY, Adult Learners, and the poorest of the poor, the visionless and the like to continue and appreciate

An accomplished mother, whose children are making waves in their respective Industry, a wonderful friend wrapped around in one which won her hundreds of friends and if truth be told a happy family. It has been told that “A Leader can’t lead without a good soldier”. With her dedicated and strong godly principles, a leader like me is sturdily blessed and encourage, thus, first-class result has been made and will continue to nourish such as the projects avow above.

CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION

nemployment among the youth grew at an alarming rate of 6.3 percent over a 10-year-period of 1997 to 2007, the “highest increase in the world,” a recent study of the International Labor Organization showed. The third report on the progress of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, released last year, echoed the same trend: the number of unemployed youth shot up from 74 million to 86 million in the Asia Pacific region from 1996 to 2006, and is expected to reach 195 million in 2024 if both the government and private sector fail to address the problem.

In the Philippines, unemployability is an outgrowth of limited access to education, according to Dr. Carolina Guerrero, Director of the Bureau of Alternative Learning System. “We have what we call the Club 86. There is an average of 100 entrants in the first grade in the country, but out of these 100, only 14 will get a college degree. What happened to the other 86? They are all dropouts, part of Club 86,” she said. Being one of the people whom God has given a privilege and opportunity to share, mold and edify the so called “Club 86”, with these projects that I am presenting and implemented for the past years; eradication of illiteracy, expanding access to education and job prospects for the learners in the next millennium are amongst my top concern. San Carlos City in Negros’ two major sources of income is either in government establishments or laborer. With high tuition fees and the jobs demands in the market, it is impossible for them to

get a decent job or quality education, thus, residents in the City will be left behind if not acted promptly. Hand in hand with the Local Government (LGU), we set and shared one common and unexceptional goal. In behalf of ALS-San Carlos family, with the leadership of

our ALS Division Supervisor, Mr. Marcellius Tanoy, the visionary Hon. Mayor Bong Lacson, I proudly present the projects I’ve conducted, implemented and continues to develop which all aims to stop these numbers (unemployment and poverty) from growing.

ABOUT THE PROJECTS
ALTERNATIVE LEARNING SYSTEM or ALS (EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 356) is indeed a parallel learning system to provide a viable alternative to the formal educational instruction.

The existing and current projects I have planned, coached, implemented go along with:

THE VIABLE INSTRUCTION WHICH EXTENDS THE CORE VISION AND MISSION OF BALS

Basic Literacy and Computer Literacy are some of the viable education I personally implemented and constantly improving. The projects that I’ve conducted indeed carefully studied to meet the Bureau’s criteria as we continue to flag the vision and mission of the institution. With the existing literacy classes that I have, and with the latest project I’ve implemented, we further extend the core Vision and Mission of the Institution, that result to the improvement of their 1. quality of life as they are more confident after they’ve enrolled to ALS Training; 2. some gain profitable jobs in hospitality, real estate, computing and retail industries, which makes them a contributing member of the society. 3. Provide learners a range of alternative pathways in order that they may continue their learning outside of the formal system;

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

4. Livelihood skills offered to address the present need to augment family income; 5. And upgrade their skills and competencies as preparing to take the A&E test

CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT WITHIN THE SCHOOL THAT IS CONDUCIVE TO TEACHING AND LEARNING

The existing Learning Center has been reorganized to meet OH&S (Occupational Health and Safety) measure where the environment is conducive to teaching and students learning; In fact the Local Government spent Php 183,000.00 under Lumpsum Appropriation 2007, Supplemental Budget No. 2 entitled “Repair of Electrical System at Bureau of Alternative Learning System (BALS) Office” of the Local Government, under my request.

The Draft Arrangement of the Training Center (COMPUTER LITERACY PLAN) can be found on Physical Layout of this Report.

IMPLEMENTING THE SCHOOL CURRICULUM AND BEING ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIGHER LEARNING OUTCOMES.

On top of ALS’ Learning modules, under the umbrella of RA 9155, the curriculum framework has been blend with Technical and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Software Operations NC Level II Qualification, is one of the references I have taken and put into operation

1. to suit the industries needs, 2. provide exit point and alternative learning to the so called “CLUB 86”, 3. learners necessary qualification to improve their quality of life; 4. and learn skills that is useful to augment family income where they can find profitable and decent jobs in the future.

LADDERIZATION AND SESSIONS EXIT POINTS

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

All my projects specifically develop to make them productive. Thus, all learning session make available the so called “exit points” where student/learners can either continuously learning while earning an income. The above diagram illustrates the exit point.

SAN CARLOS CITY, NEGROS OCCIDENTAL

CHAPTER 2: COMPUTER LITERACY PROJECT

ABOUT COMPUTER LITERACY PROGRAM
ALS (EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 356) San Carlos, Neg. Occ------The call of making the Philippines the IT Hub in Asia and inspired by the activities under the project “USAPAN AT AKSIYON sa ALS Ngayon” (USAPAN), prompted me to conduct research, surveys and session analysis to support the said call and to endow with practicality and good results amongst the learners.

The result of my study was based on the actual surveys conducted by my active and self efficient teachers and with the information provided by the Local Government (San Carlos City LGU), which is illustrated, in Scope and other Section of this report. I realized the need to established Computer Literacy Program in the City with the following reasons:

TO PROVIDE ONGOING SUPPORT TO OUR A&E LEARNERS AND GRADUATES

27 | P a g e

MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

This will provide an additional privilege to the graduates both that weren’t able to pass the A&E National Exam, and for those who wanted to gain special computer skills.

The course curriculum was designed patterned to TESDA’s Software Essential Course, NC Level II. Through this it will provide double advantage to the selected learners, whether they opt to continue now to High School or look for work momentary while saving for future educational investments. Legal Basis

A& E on the other hand is implemented through the following legal basis: 1. Constitution of the Philippines 1987, Art. XIV, Sec. 15, 2. Executive Order No. 117 Sec. 115, DepEd Order No. 32 1972, 3. Proclamation No. 480, 4. DECS Memo No. 204, 2. 1998; 5. and DECS Order Nos. 22 and 28, s. 1999.

TO OFFER ENDURING EDUCATION FOR OUR TYPING/LIVELIHOOD PROGRAM GRADUATES

ALS San Carlos has an ongoing session for Typing and other Livelihood Projects. As the worlds industry is shifting to what they’ve called

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

“modernization” where mostly used computers in their jobs, so with the equipments and facilities we have. Typing Lesson indeed will build their knowledge in making letters, spelling, punctuations, indentations and speed. With the knowledge learnt from these Sessions, skills will be enhance to jive with the industries needs --Computer Literacy!

TO REDUCE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN SAN CARLOS CITY BY PROVIDING IN DEMAND COURSES TUITION FREE

The curriculum was indeed pattern but not limited to TESDA’s Software Essential Training Regulation (National Competency Level II), most offices and establishments requires “basic” computer knowledge in researching using browsers, encode mathematical calculations using spreadsheets and writing resumes and letters with the help of word processors are among the necessity everyone should know. With high demands of such skills, it is impossible for those less fortunate to afford such course. Tuition and other miscellaneous fees are highlighted and illustrated on FEES Section.

29 | P a g e

MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

HELP REDUCE POVERTY RATE

Being in the office for a couple of years, I’ve seen poverty stricken communities which have been slowly changed as we continue to do our GOD given talents to those individuals. As the Local Government (LGU) set aside a total of Php500,000.00 from its Social Fund highlighted on Resolution No. 07-344 for the City, thus we take our part as one of the pillars of education. I personally believe that one major cause of poverty is the illiteracy, thus they can’t land a good and decent job. The lack of education is one of the primary reason of poverty, and as an educator, I was blessed enough to be given an opportunity to coordinate such progress --reduce poverty rate in the City.

The main question is how?

With the existing curriculum BALS implemented, taken all consideration companies wish to hire, pondering the City’s Vision and Mission, Computer Literacy was born. A continuing education to make them employability or give them the confidence to start their own business are some of the main core learning they can achieve at the end of the course as we combined formal and informal teaching, all define under the umbrella of R.A 9155 Section 4e and d.

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

TO FILL IN THE GAP, OPPORTUNITIES AND ALTERNATIVE FOR THE LESS FORTUNATE WHO WISH TO WORK AND EMPLOY IN THE AREA OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SECTOR

As agreed, ALS will send and has sent a list of names and contact numbers to Local Government Unit (LGU) for their database bank subject for future reference of such benefits like job employment, scholarships and the like. It is one way of helping the said economically disadvantage individuals.

Furthermore, the learners are qualified and can apply as PC Operator, Data Clerk, Internet Researcher, Data Encoder, Internet Café Attendant and PC Operator.

TO HELP PROVIDE QUALITY MANPOWER (READY) FOR THE INVESTORS WHO WISH TO INVEST IN THIS CITY, THUS, PROMOTING SAN CARLOS CITY AS THE NEXT POWERHOUSE IN I.T. BUSINESS

With the City’s laid 20-year program, ALS wishes to support by training individuals to suit the City’s plan. Preparing not just the individual learners, but as Carlosian as a whole. Manpower equipped with required skills needed for the ICT companies looking for. 31 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

TO DEVELOP POTENTIALS THROUGH HARNESSING COMPUTER SKILLS

Almost everything is on the internet. Teaching these students how to conduct research using the World Wide Web, will push them to a world of no boundaries. Also responsibilities are often injected and develop their English language are some major concern and knowledge they’ll learn within the period of Six (6) months of education. Curriculum details are further explained on curriculum section of this report.

TO FURTHER ENHANCE ONE’S SKILL TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS EITHER BY EMPLOYMENT OR BY INVESTING THEIR OWN BUSINESS

The flexibility of the Session will boost their confidence either if they are looking for a job or putting their own business. We focus on the result, not on quantity of the learners, thus, “quality” as defined by R.A. 9155 Section 4k.

TO PROMOTE ALS HOME BASE TRAINING CENTER AS AN ALTERNATIVE SRS AND A DISTANCE LEARNING SCHOOL

To showcase a vast number of less privileged in the City, we strategically conduct a system that will help them to the maximum of supplies and abilities. We provide training session within the

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

City itself, and sends teacher to the remotest areas to reach those learners who have not access had access to any formal schooling or those who have dropped out within the. Mostly, sessions held in the training center were what we called “continuing education”.

TO SUPPORT OTHER RELATED PROGRAMS WITH OTHER IMPLEMENTING AGENCIES AS SPECIFIED BY E.O 266

With this project, we open other opportunities such as expanding the delivery of ALS among the impoverished sectors of the population by coordinating other programs hereto specified on the following agencies as E.O 266 Section 5 provides:

Ladderasation Program, we then proudly present its curriculum design; the pilot I.T. session of BALS, which I carefully analyzed with the help of EDSEL PONO, of PonoServices.com and our Division ALS Supervisor, Mr. Marcellius Tanoy.

PROGRAM COVERAGE
PROGRA M TITLE SUBJECTS
1. Basic Computer Concepts and Typing Fundamentals. 2. Software Operations (6 months) 3. 4. 5. 6. Windows Essential. Microsoft Word 2007. Microsoft Excel 2007. Microsoft Internet Essential. Microsoft PowerPoint 2007.

The brainstorming within the supervisor (the illustrated diagram of officers is explained in Officers Section of this report) lasted for two month that includes the proposal to our beloved Honorable Mayor Bong Lacson.

With today’s up-to-date software and latest hardware, trained Instructors, we therefore guarantee the learners to achieve such competencies for them not just to become bankable in IT jobs but may be able to conduct their own business in the near future.

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

SCOPE AND LIMITATION
In as much as helping the country, the said project has its limitation. Hereto are the lists of some major concerns:

NUMBER OF ENROLLEES

With the City’s population amounting to 120,000 more or less, the institution limits the number of enrollees up to 140 learners per semester (that’s every six months). Even though we strategically construct a curriculum that will not sacrifice the learning of each individual, it is done for them to have computer hands-on at the ratio of 1:1, with the total of more or less 100 hours (lab) on top of the 100 hours allocated for their under pinning knowledge (lecture), the lack of terminals constraints us in accepting a massive response of more or less 500 learners on its first offer.

MONETARY/BUDGET

The LGU offered their overwhelming support of my proposed project in spite of their tight and limited project. The budget of Php 316, 800.00 chargeable against Lumpsum Appropriation, Supplemental Budget No. 1, CY 2007, was 37 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

sparred and given to us. With shared vision and mission, we come up in realization of the project, thus helping hundreds of Carlosian and still counting.

WORKSTATIONS

With the generosity of the Local Government, we have 10 workstation used for the computer laboratory, that is based upon the budget allocated by the LGU for the institution as extended but overwhelming support, in spite of the lax assistance by the local DepEd.

Other computers were used for teaching staff for their lesson plans, research, reports, presentation and other pertinent and related documentation.

SAN CARLOS RESIDENTS

The projects primary concern is to help eradicate or lessen the number of illiterate within the community and to provide continuing education and support to the community. Under limited occasion, still accept neighboring cities and municipalities under the approval of the committee.

Committees are explained under “committee” section of this report.

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

AUDIENCE
Although the bulk of enrollees recently came from the less fortunate, this “Computer Literacy” program of ALS-San Carlos is not limited to the said audience. In fact, it is intended to the following group/classes:

1. Filipino Out-of-School Youth (OSY) and Adults at least
finished the ALS Basic Literacy Program, Typing graduates, basically knew how to read and write and able to solve basic mathematical calculations and or similar. 2. Unemployed/underemployed OSYs and adults

3. Secondary school drop-outs/leavers
4. Industry-based workers, housewives, maids, factory workers, drivers 5. Members of cultural minorities / indigenous peoples 6. Persons with disabilities / physically challenged 7. Inmates, rebel / soldier integrees

All of which should be a resident of San Carlos City, Negros Occidental as highlighted in Scope and Limitation. On case to case basis, accepts enrollees from neighboring cities and municipalities which is all subject upon the approval of the committee.

STATISTICAL DATA

Upon the opening in June 2007, an enormous amount of students rush into the training center to access the said Computer Literacy program. A total or more or less 500 students responded, with proper interviews, requirements and entrance exams, only 120 students were given a slot for a maximum of 140 seats using only 10 workstations.

After six months, there is a dramatically change in figure which increases around 20% on its first opened/launched, this is because of those learners in the waitlist who is somehow or someway didn’t pass some of the test conducted but closer to the set criteria’s.

This 1st Semester of 2008, an increase has been noted compared to the first it was opened. The analysis determine the slightly increase of

COMMITTEE
This project will not be possible without the help of my constituents. To make this program successful, I’ve ask my fellow coordinators in helping out to make this dream project a reality. Teachers for an example at the beginning don’t have salary. It is impossible for us to pull out competent and credible teachers without the benefit of giving them even allowances to sustain their day to day expenses as they travel from their respective houses to the Learning center. Thus, by allocating a certain loads from their designated Districts, the said allowances are made possible. On top of that, the said committee was organized to create a solid foundation on rules and regulations regarding computer usage, teaching loads, facilities and other related matters. Here are the committees.

To further promote ALS and its project. I have decided to conduct CLLC which means “Computer Literacy Learners Council”. The purpose of the said council is to ensure the students are well represented and to reach out to them in a different aspect to achieve the Learning Objectives of the institution. As they’ve studied with us, we not only deliver education but help them boost their self esteem in terms of confidence and outlook presentation.

This was held last March 13, 2008 which started with a parade that was participated by the learners, newly elected CLLC Officers, ALS Administration and Instructional Managers, around the City with their designed T-Shirts (printed with BALS LOGO) on white motif (a fresh way to start).

A DREAM THAT BECOMES REALITY!

Graduation is the greatest gift a student/learner can give to his/her parents. The picture above had shown the 140 hopeful graduates as they are bound to take another leap in their lives. A testimony that computer education is not for the rich alone, Computer Literacy can be gained even your parents are earning 100 pesos a day. These learners indeed have new hope, a hope which we, ALS personnel dreamt of.

THE 130 DELIGHTFUL LEARNERS AND THE OFFICERS

Its has been told:

"A stable and democratic society is impossible without widespread acceptance of some common set of values and without a minimum degree of literacy and knowledge on the part of most citizens. Education contributes to both. In consequence, the gain from the education of a child accrues not only to the child or to his parents but to other members of the society; the education of my child contributes to other people's welfare by promoting a stable and democratic society." (Friedman, 1955) 81 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

Being literate is a kind of especial achievement that can gain in such different things. Most especially when it comes to computers and gadgets that affect most of the lives of every individual. Literacy in the field of computer is a tough one for others. Let’s go back first to the computer’s users before on how they view the literacy in computer before. According to Zelmarc D. Tanoy who is a computer major, before, the computer literacy in the Philippines is very low. Filipinos are craving for these things but due to some factors that hinder to get and have even computer training and little knowledge in computer is very hard to grasp.

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

When we say “literacy” it is concerned with the learned, knowledge or being erudite of an individual in a certain field. Nowadays, the Philippines in one of the developing country among Southeast Asian. Since it’s still one of the developing countries, it needs to be function and more high in technology at this time. We can’t deny the fact that we are in this world or age of computers. Most of the Filipinos are now working through computers for them to be literate in this field. As the time goes on, we are still here ad not even chase the unexplainable track of technology. Computers have a very wide influence to us. As being influenced by these, we are still benefited for some important matters. We can’t deny that. Although sometimes, we can’t even imagine that it’s easy to grasp for it. Literacy here in the Philippines is now on the verge to a more competent and more systematic in terms of using computer.

Computer in such a different way of using can make us more literate and more advance in technology. The Filipinos want to have a better and more just living with the help of computer. To have those things that most of us wants, we need to be patient enough to reach the peak of the mountain.

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

Literacy in English language and in computer is the most and good quality that we can give through service in our country.

At the same time, we are teach on how these gadgets can help us and make us more establish individual. Most of us are looking forward for this.

INSPIRED AND EXCITED INSTRUCTIONAL TEACHERS ON THEIR NEW FACILITIES – ALS LIBRARY PROGRAM

My project tagged as :”Library program” has the following benefits, these Instructional managers are so delighted as I took photo of them while I explain the following benefits ruled into:

Promotion of Literacy

Every educator is concerned with the development of all aspects of students' literacy. From language arts, mathematics and all subject areas, through to information literacy, critical literacy, media and visual literacy, there are many aspects to this demanding task of making students interested in learning and also motivated to continue learning long after they leave the public school system. School libraries offer a real opportunity to assist in this work. They provide open and accessible learning environments where students and teachers can access the most complete resource collection available to them, where the wider community is easily accessible and where a love for literature, culture and global interdependence is understood and promoted.

The Goal of Lifelong Learning

Students will need their information literacy skills and strategies long after 91 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

they leave the public system. They will always need access to a wide range of resources and they will need to know how to learn if they are to keep pace with the demands of work and life in the future. We will no longer be in the same job all of our lives; we will need to learn new approaches to doing things all of the time; and we will need to be able to solve problems in creative and innovative ways. Simply sorting through the vast amounts of information we receive each day is a big job. No doubt, as students become adults, they will need the benefits of information literacy and technological competence, both of which are effectively developed in school library programs.

CHAPTER 3: DALSC OTHER PROJECTS ---ANOTHER PHILIPPINES FIRST
To reach those who are in the remotest area, the learning system conducts marketing for them to understand not just the computer literacy program but other programs being conducted by the learning system. By this we can assure that people are properly oriented and encourage them to study and be equipped in life.

Furthermore, I have implemented another first and so far the only institution put into service the following:

1. ALS San Carlos City’s Website Project 2. ALS Web Log (“Blog’) Project 3. Learning for LIFE Program 4. ALS Newsletters Project; 5. Outreach Programs and Projects under the umbrella of E.O. 266 – – – Linggo ng Wika Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Feeding Program

The use of DYRS, the local radio station in the City, Website (http://bals.ponoservices.com), Flyers, Posters

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

and Government websites (http://sancarloscity.gov.ph) ------ Through this we deliver education in a personal way and promote Learning system’s real motive, and why it exists.

PROVIDE INFORMATION REGARDING THE FRAMEWORK FOR THE GOVERNANCE OF BASIC EDUCATION

The primary purpose of doing marketing to San Carlos Community is to promote knowledge about the benefits they can get and to give them information about Alternative Learning System, the benefits it can cause and the general pattern they can pursue as the Republic Act No. 9155 Section 3a illustrates.

PROVIDE INFORMATION REGARDING THE STRUCTURE OF ALS

ALS was not highly known or popular so to speak, thus conducting information to Barangay Halls and School to School campaign help creates social awareness amongst our local community. Photo’s of such activities has been illustrated under “Photo Essay” Section on this report.

PROVIDE LEARNING FOR LIFE

A series of talks within the boundaries of E.O. 266 ---a life experiences, countries current campaigns and issue that affects individuals as we join forces with 97 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

other departments and agencies to edify those learners within our scope. The primary purpose is simple ----give them education beyond classroom environment. Simply real education, that’s ALS! Topics varies from Sex, Religion, Politics, Jobs and Careers, Family, Relationship, Election, Taxes, Laws and even English enhancement Program that includes Speech and Personality Development, all depending on the government and private agency invited. One thing for sure, all knowledge gained is necessary and practical which they can use to improved their lives and become a contributing individual within the community and the country.

TO SET A GOOD EXAMPLE TO THE LEARNERS BY CONDUCTING OUTREACH AGENDA AND OTHER ACTIVITIES LEARNT FROM “LEARNING FOR LIFE” PROGRAM

What good is knowledge if it is not used in practicality? Being a citizen of this country, of this City, our responsibility is not only teaching them the “knowledge” but to give them examples and grounds to further develop themselves and to create social awareness in relation to other departments and agencies. Through this, knowledge in deferent sector of government programs, an issue that affects daily lives of the individual will be meeting and nourish to promote one good common goal. A knowledge surpasses and beyond the classroom boundaries.

http://alsscc.blogspot.com

BLOG OUTLOOK

The blog’s look basically is very simple for faster download and easy to navigate. Hereto attached is a screen capture of the said web log.

PURPOSE

There are a lot of reasons why we established ‘blogging” ALS-San Carlos.

1. Promote Social awareness within the community. 2. Maximize the scope and boundaries 105 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

3. Less expensive marketing 4. To encourage teachers and staff within the organization 5. To provide further information, where website is limited.

I initially implement, published and used by an organization to reach its organizational goals. The advantage of blogs is that posts and comments are easy to reach and follow due to centralized hosting and generally structured conversation threads. Currently, all major browsers (including Firefox, Opera, Safari and Internet Explorer 7) support RSS technology, which enables readers to easily read recent posts without actually visiting the blog, which is very useful for lowvolume blogs.

ALS Blog publicly available where company employees, teams, or spokespersons share their views, it is often used to announce new products and services, to explain and clarify policies, or to react on public criticism on certain issues. It also allows a window to the company culture and is often treated more informally than traditional press releases, though a corporate blog often tries to accomplish similar goals as press releases do. The blog, but not all, allow comments to be made to the posts.

Its very nature, offer a more honest and direct view than traditional communication channels. Nevertheless, they remain public relations tools.

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

This business blog can provide additional value by adding a level of credibility that is often unobtainable from our standard site. The informality and increased timeliness of information posted to blogs assists with increasing transparency and accessibility in the corporate image. ALS blogs can interact with a target market on a more personal level while building link credibility that can ultimately be tied back to our main site.

LITERACY FOR LIFE PROGRAM
Literacy for Life has been developing recently as the continuing and bridging project proposed and implemented by Mrs Dolores Pono, DALSC III. Their primary concept is by expanding the delivery of ALS among the impoverished sectors of the population by coordinating other programs to other government and private agencies.

Literacy for Life Project (a fundraising in nature)---gives those learners within ALS Scope to educate them the essential learning every Filipino must know through experts’ skills, knowledge and experiences. A topic varies from Sex, Religion, Politics, Rights, Law, Health, Family, Tradition, Business, Jobs and Careers, Sports, Tourism, Nature and Environment and among other things.

Furthermore, the project was patterned to “Australia’s Labor Commission Project” as they successfully fight decrease illiteracy rate for the aboriginal 107 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

community, unemployment scheme and education benefits within the society. This project was designed and implemented under the umbrella and the legality of Executive Order ( E.O.) 299. The project aims to: 1. Educate the Out-of-school youth, Adult learners (within ALS Scope) matters that affects them and the community. 2. To primary address the present need to augment family income; 3. To raise funds to further expand the delivery of ALS among the impoverished sector of the population; 4. To work hand-in-hand with other government agencies to fulfill each ones’ goals and objectives. 5. To further extends and support other ALS projects such as Computer Literacy Project, Feeding Program, Balik Paaralan para sa Out-of-School youth (A&E), Basic Literacy (students who doesn’t know how to read and write), Livelihood Program and the like.

Besides the learning they can get, the funds that we get from these activities will be given to the less fortunate of the society in the form of Feeding Program (see Nutrition, OH&S and Feeding Program Section of this Report).

Pilot topics and talks are as follows: A. Department of Health Topic: “Sex, Nutrition, Family and Industry” Speaker: One of the growing problems the Philippines facing is the increase in population, the lack of education about sex related issues. Statistics shows that a number of married couple nowadays range between 18-25 increases due to early pregnancy, or the worst unwanted babies in result to single mom’s. Another

MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

factor that creates social problem that needs to be address.

B. Commission on Election Topic: “What makes a good Election?” Speaker: During election, bribe, cheating, stealing are some of the major issues Filipinos often encountered. Even though election is far, an issue that affects the youth and every individual must be promulgated and disseminated. Information, we Filipinos shouldn’t take it lightly. Knowing facts and data that address the issue help the country’s dying integrity towards election.

C. Philippine Employment and Service Office (PESO) Topic: “Is this the right job for me?” Speaker: Mrs. Delia Camasura Often caught in a situation where a learner doesn’t know what the right work is for them. The talk will give them an immeasurable amount of learning experience to find a job that is suitable and what the market really wants.

D. Department of Education (DepED) Topic: “You outha know, dude --- the benefits of English Language for Filipinos” Speaker: Dr. Eldeza Aleta China spent Billion of Dollars for their English Literacy Program. With the advancement of technology and the dominance of English language in the market, the speaker tends to educate the learners the importance of learning English as a second language. The benefits 109 | P a g e it can cause being a Filipino. MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

The List of all other topics is posted on ALS-San Carlos Web Log(s).

AUDIENCE
Although the bulk of enrollees recently came from the less fortunate, this “Learning for Life” program of ALSSan Carlos is not limited to the said audience. In fact, it is intended to the following group/classes:

1. Filipino Out-of-School Youth (OSY) and Adults, 2. Unemployed/underemployed.

It seeks to develop reading, writing and counting abilities and also knowledge, skills and attitudes that are essential to survival and development in a fast changing technological society.

The 1994 functional Literacy Education and Mass Media survey confirmed the existence of 2.4 million Filipinos who are basically illiterate. These people cannot read, write nor solve simple number problems of everyday life. Many of them are found in poor, rural communities among indigenous peoples and unemployed sectors of the population. They have very limited access to government services and occupational opportunities.

GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The program aims to provide illiterate out-of-school children, youth and adults, particularly those from the poorest segments of society with community-based

The campaign is basically addressing every child’s dream to have a decent living, a good education. This child is not alone; statistics spells that they are thousands exist with the same condition within the country. Our main purpose is to help those children with the same standing, one step at a time.

AN IMAGE OF A HAPPY LEARNER

As they smile, we smile, as they laugh, we laugh, as they learn, we learn as well. Upon the new program initiated by the Bureau, we realized, analyzed and materialized the major components of the system:

Protection and prevention - Reducing socio-economic vulnerability of the poorest children and youth by improving their access to quality education, and livelihood options, by strengthening their powers in decision making, and by working to mobilize families, communities, and local authorities to support children’s rights to protection.

It is estimated around 3.1 millions Filipinos who are basically illiterate. These people cannot read, write nor solve simple number problems of everyday life. It’s also the same situation of __________. The picture was taken during the interview session together with the Computer Literacy applicants.

This motorcycle is not as impressive as the world’s latest discoveries right now, but this motorcycle brings joy to these less fortunate where Buses and Jeeps don’t dare to go. A local term named “Habal-Habal” is commonly used transportation to reach areas like you’ve seen on the photograph. Quite often, especially every Thursday afternoon or Monday morning, a scenario of these motorcycles can accommodate and fit in 5 to 8 people.

I CAN READ THAT SIR!

Yes we are committed and yes we will endeavor. Kids like this encourage us to pursue and further develop 119 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

projects that will help these kids fulfill their simple dreams.

WE CAN’T CONCENTRATE, WE ARE CAMERA SHY!

These kids are having a literacy session in Sitio Mabuni, Barangay Guadalupe. In the presence of digital camera, the learners attention was divided, they are actually not used being taken photo, actually the reality is that they are “quite” ignoramus” and taking photo’s are new to them. Anyways, we’ve got crash session on that day about digital cameras and the development of new technologies. Another alternative learning ha.

CHAPTER 5: WORK ACHIEVEMENTS

On top of the work achievements discuss in Chapter’s 2, 3 and 4 on this report, please be aware that this chapter illustrates not the entire achievements I’ve made for my entire service but instead only discusses the last two (2) years as DepEd Memorandum no. 269 illustrates;

EMPLOYED NEW INSTRUCIONAL MANAGERS AND STAFF

The project needed teachers to lay the foundation of the curriculum I’ve written specifically for the session. The teachers are as follows:

1. Mrs. Janet Palencia 2. Mrs. Ma. Annabelle Leduna 3. Ms. Melanie Gravata 4. Ms. Jessica Reporas 5. Mr. Zelmarc D. Tanoy

ELEVATE THE NUMBER OF ENROLLEES/LEARNERS UP TO 500%

As the Session is getting more popular, the number of learners has been increased five times from the 127 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

previous number of enrollees. Truly, computing lesson is very popular not just in the City but in the country as a whole. ALS is making waves to this new dimension as we continue to offer additional alternatives which the community really needs.

A significant increase of enrollees in other sessions such as basic literacy, typing has been recorded as it is an entry requirements for computer literacy session. Learners should know how to write and read, understand simple instruction (English) and knowledge in typing format is a must.

UPGRADE ALS PHYSICAL FACILITIES AND REFERENCES

Ten (10) Workstations plus printer and other equipment are some of the addition to ALS Facilities in response to my “Computer Literacy Proposal” address to the Local Government.

In pursuit to follow the OH&S illustrated by the Australian Computing Society (ACS), limitations drawn us back. One big example is the use of ergonomic chairs and keyboard to resolve the major problem of back-pains and wrist strains. On the other hand, we develop the curriculum to help solve or address the issues. Aside from that, with burning 2732 degrees temperature we have in the City, ALS has just purchased an Air Conditioning Machine and installed it on the Computer Room, all out from the project itself. A testimony that the project is an

income generating and brings this all back to students to make their learning enjoyable and beneficial

Under my proposal, the Local Government spent Php 183,000.00 under Lumpsum Appropriation 2007, Supplemental Budget No. 2 entitled “Repair of Electrical System at Bureau of Alternative Learning System (BALS) Office” of the Local Government. Having said that, we (staff, DALSC, ALSM, Learners) are now enjoying good light, a way to illuminate eye related problem among the learners and the like.

Library plays a very vital role in child’s learning development. Bringing them closer to read books is indeed simple to say but hard to realized. The project has been delivered and now learners are enjoying the benefits of its new facility. Details of this are mentioned under “Physical Facility – Computer Literacy project” Section of this report.

Staff/instructional Managers Facilities have been upgraded to. A place where learners can talk about School related issue to their Instructional Managers, it is an area for guidance counseling, payment and other admin related activities.

With proper evaluations among the institution, I’ve created a curriculum who’s main advantage are the learners. This curriculum is indeed “FIRST” to be implemented in the country under the umbrella of BALS. Legalities and benefits have been highlighted on each Section of the project’s Chapter.

IMPART TO THE YOUNG ALS IMPLEMENTERS MY KNOWLEDGE AND STRENGHT AND CONTINUALLY LEARNING AS I SHARE

As reflected on the teacher’s and learners testimony, the more you share, the more you know. A principle which has been imparted to those young implementers, whom I am, blessed enough. Courage, dedication and honesty tops the list which are all emanate from the book I always read, the Bible.

PROMOTES HARMONIOUS CAMARADERIE WITHIN ALS, DEPED AND LGU’S

Testimony of Mrs. Ma Annabelle Leduna - Instructional Manager (Computer Literacy)

DEP-ED ALTERNATIVE LEARNING SYSTEM DIVISION OF SAN CARLOS CITY
Computer Literacy Program
2nd Fl. Public Market San Carlos City, Negros Occidental

Mrs. Dolores R. Pono is an educator for 30 years. She is currently the District III and Computer Literacy Program Coordinator of DepEd Alternative Learning System in the Division of San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Philippines. She is a mother of three children. One of it is Mr. Edsel Joy R. Pono the former Consultant of the said program.

It was on the last week of December, 2006 that I was informed by Mrs. Dolores R. Pono that there was a scheduled training for teachers on Computer Literacy Program. I was an illiterate then in software operations. And it was during the training that I first held a mouse.

I was a week late and a bit apprehensive if I would be allowed to attend the training. However, with Ma’am Dolly’s help and Sir Leo’s (that is what Sir Edsel is fondly addressed by us) considerate heart, I was admitted.

It was in the course of the training that I’ve learned that the Dep-Ed ALS Computer Literacy Program was the brainchild of Mrs. Dolores R. Pono. The ALS Division of San Carlos City is the first to hold of its kind through out the Philippines. Together with Sir Leo, the program was implemented by ALS under the Supervision of Dep-Ed San Carlos City Division. The provision of computer units was made possible by the City Government of San Carlos thru the efforts of the mother and son tandem.

The acquisition of materials and classroom facilities to make the classroom conducive to learning were achieved thru Ma’am Dolly’s ways of finding a budget and careful planning. She is always on the look-out for improvements. By the way, our hands-on/computer laboratory room has now an air-conditioning unit. It is better than the ceiling fan we had had at first.

149 | P a g e

MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

A “doting mother” to us, not just for her own children, she always considers and understand our welfare and our well-being. Though, at times, misunderstood for her hand of discipline, I always consider her a blessing. It is thru this means we could be trained to exercise our discernment and to put into practice our teaching profession with integrity.

She always encourages us to perform at our best and is never an impediment to our progress. What touches me most was her effort to scout for short-term trainings for professional growth and educational upliftment. She always finds ways and makes plans for the project to expand. And like a mother eagle, she covers us with her wings of protection when our integrity is attacked and our capabilities are questioned.

Today, I am one of the Instructional Managers of the Computer Literacy Program. I have attained this new level of accomplishment personally, morally, financially and professionally for a moment of invitation by Ma’am Dolly. My life has changed. For that short encounter, it has a great impact in my life.

The Alternative Learning System of the Division of San Carlos City, Negros Occidental, Philippines has a new literacy program that becomes a “hit” in the city. So far, the current enrollment of our 3 rd batch of learners reaches up to 200 and a number of prospects waiting in the list…lives and more lives will be touched and a new cycle begins for each and everyone. I am a witness and a product of this program. I had seen the lives of the learners under me changed. In fact, there are testimonies from them of how they appreciated the six-month training was being conducted. This legacy could not be measured by monetary matters.

Let me end by quoting this saying: “A good mentor is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.’’

Kudos to you Ma’am Dolly!

Testimony of Mrs. Janet Palencia - Instructional Manager (Computer Literacy)

DEP-ED ALTERNATIVE LEARNING SYSTEM DIVISION OF SAN CARLOS CITY
2nd Fl. Public Market, San Carlos City, Negros Occidental

Computer Literacy Program

I am one of the few people who considered Mrs. Pono, “Dolly” my close friend, a sister. It is through her in somehow or someway I drew some strength and wisdom as I fulfill my God driven job as a Guidance Counselor and Instructional Manager at the same time.

Shared Faith A sincere mother to her three kids, Dolly raised them up in a decent and happy life, in spite of her challenging career, that demands more time and concentration. The Christian faith that testify and serves the foundation of ALS Guidance Rules and Regulation, a faith that uplifts those hopeless individuals to have a decent education, a shared faith we all adapt.

Lifting up the moral Having a very low budget, Mrs. Pono’s wit initiatives, through the initiation of Computer Literacy lifted our takings. Having said that, we can now buy new clothes to wear during classes, buy new things to share with the students which ALS sometimes failed to provide due to budget restrictions; an income that can indeed support our families, an income that provides new facilities within the ALS Training Center, where learners can now be proud of.

Ambassador of real education

151 | P a g e

MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008

Currently, ALS “Computer Literacy” trained over 450 learners in just 18 months of its operation alone, not mentioning DALSC’s other implemented sessions on the remotest area of the City. With magnificent relationship she had for other government agencies, she managed to have us trained prior to the launching of the said project, in spite of colossal limitations. Now we can say that we are now effective in this field of teaching. She is truly making education a business, for business, like business.

Put ALS San Carlos into map Her smartness ideas and submissive heart to her superiors give ALS an extra edge. With projects like Website and Web Logs, the institution promotes transparency, responsibility, guidance and fun within the work force. It is not just visible within the country but creates open doors for sponsors around the world, with one common reason is to help the less fortunate productive and improve their daily lives now and in the near future.

Emissary of alternative learning As she develop the successful curriculum of Computer Literacy program, she never stops there, in fact she continues to evolve and conduct research and study as to how to maximized the learners benefits from the minimal equipments that we have. Alternative Learning is all about education that is practical and necessary to make an individual productive, efficient and effective towards his or her life’s goal, thus with the instigation of Mrs. Pono’s Literacy for Life, it addresses life’s perennial issues based on expertise experience. A know-how that can never be trained from typical discipline!

Truly, I am one of the many people that can testify the astonishing efforts Mrs. Pono achieved in her job. Changing their lives one step at a time!

Working with such enormous talent, unselfish sacrifices towards her community and undying passion towards education is indeed a privilege. A Legacy which I admired, a living glory of her purpose we all wanted to shape our lives with, where God describes “Well done good and faithful servant”

Computer Literacy Program

It is my utmost pleasure to testify towards the benefits we’ve gained from Mrs. Dolores Pono, our “doting mother”. I know Mrs. Dolores Pono for not more than two years only, but with that less amount of time, I was struck by her dedication and perseverance. Assigned as one of the challenging role in ALS Computer Literacy Program and as a graduate of the same industry that of Mrs. Pono, it was through her that I’ve learnt these things not just by theory but its exceptional beauty and certainty:
Promotion of Literacy Every educator is concerned with the development of all aspects of students' literacy. From language arts, mathematics and all subject areas, through to information literacy, critical literacy, media and visual literacy, there are many aspects to this demanding task of making students interested in learning, ALS library offer a real opportunity to assist in this work. They provide open and accessible learning environments where students and teachers can access the most complete resource collection available to them, where the wider community is easily accessible and where a love for literature, culture and global interdependence is understood and promoted. The Goal of Lifelong Learning Students will need their information literacy skills, will always need access to a wide range of resources and they will need to know how to learn if they are to keep pace with the demands of work and life in the future. We will no longer be in the same job all of our lives; we will need to learn new approaches to doing things all of the time; and we will need to be able to solve problems in creative and innovative ways. Simply sorting through the vast amounts of information we receive each day is a big job. No doubt, as students become adults, they will need the benefits of information literacy and technological competence, both of which are effectively developed in school library programs.

All this has been implemented. ALS now have a physical library where students can study, read, write and borrow references to assist them in their study, all of which were made possible by our beloved DALSC, Mrs. Pono.
