(Re-published from KANAAS)
Plans are underway for the establishment of the City of Bogo Science and Arts Academy, a school that would cater to the needs of gifted and exceptionally talented children through a specialized curriculum in science and the arts, including sports and foreign languages. This is an integrated school from kindergarten to high school.
Conceptualized by Mayor Junie Martinez, this is a joint project of DepEd Bogo and the local government. DepEd will take charge of developing the curriculum, hiring, staffing and managing the school operations. While the City government provides the annual budget for its operation, renovation and construction of physical facilities, funds the salaries, wages and benefits for both teaching and non-teaching personnel including the managers and the procurement of the IM/ IT/ MM and its installation.
Expected to open in June 2012, the school will start with two sections of kindergarten and grade one and two sections of first year high school with 30 students in each section. The City Council has already approved an ordinance sponsored by Hon. Belinda Rodriguez, Chair, Committee on Education for the establishment of the school and the budget for its operation. - BNR
DepEd has already started screening for enrollees to CBSA. Preliminary screening was held last month.
