ALS SUPERVISORS’
RECOMMENDATION

Mrs. Dolores R. Pono, DALSC – San Carlos City, Negros Occidental,


has been consistently recognized on her incomparable works, thus I vouch
my sincere recommendation on the Major Scopes but not limited to the
following grounds:

1. Computer Literacy Program


2. ALS – San Carlos City Website Project
3. ALS –San Carlos City Web Log Project
4. ALS- Literacy for Life Project
5. A & E Implementation Project
6. Basic Literacy Implementation Project
7. Livelihood Project and;
8. Other outstanding and exceptional work
achievements.

The above mentioned projects and among others are exemplified and
illustrated Chapter by Chapter of this report. Each Chapter discusses the
nominated potentials and achievements from personal data’s, views ‘till
projects implemented and summaries.

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
education. A life changing testimony of hopeful learners which I can’t
emphasize, even a two hundred pages testimony is not enough.

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.

Once again of her ideal and exemplary deeds in the performance of her
duty, I am strongly recommending Mrs. Pono as a nominee for the
Search of the Most Outstanding District ALS Coordinator of 2008.

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

pathways in order that they may continue
their learning outside of the formal system;

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.

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

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”.

ABOUT THE I.T. ACADEMIC PROGRAM

Technology is advancing in almost every aspect


in our daily lives, from bank transactions,
MRS. DOLORES PONO | DALSC- SAN CARLOS OFFICIAL ENTRY REPORT

teacher’s lesson plans, Electric companies’


information system and even buying from an
ordinary sari-sari store are now using and indeed
managing information system.

We are therefore offering such academic


program in response to the needs and
demands of the industries and a call for
poverty eradication which the Department of
Education (DepEd) – San Carlos City,
Negros Occidental is advancing.

The said literacy program is specifically designed


to achieve the competencies:

1. Become effective and efficient using Word


Processing,

2. Able to calculate Simple spreadsheets


transaction;

3. Gain confidence and the concept of technical


presentation using “Software’s” such as
Microsoft PowerPoint and other related Open
Source presentation;

4. Knowledge and Skills in conducting research


with the use of today’s top web browsers
(Mozilla Firefox v3.0, MSIE, Opera) and
communication towards the internet.

With future tie-up with TESDA for TVET


registration as NC Level II, as well San Carlos
City’s Private Institution for CHED’s

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.

39 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008


Most of these target learners live below the
poverty line, predominantly coming from
depressed, disadvantaged, underserved
communities.

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

enrollees on the specified season which


contributes a lot of factors..

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

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

another leap in their
lives. A testimony that
computer education is
not for the rich alone,
Computer Literacy can

These learners

THE 130 DELIGHTFUL LEARNERS AND THE

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)

83 | 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.

85 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008


Mrs. Elinita Pama, our Mobile teacher demonstrating Computer Functions

Today, we are now living in the modernization of many things. That’s why we
need to pursue to for the cause that we can be literate in the fields of 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. We tend to look for a computer job
for us to be trained and become a literate one in the fields of computer. Through
computers, we work most for our own good. 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. And now, the computer literacy in the Philippines
is inclining. It is because of the wills of everyone to learn and be benefited by it.

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.

NEWSLETTER

A newsletter is a regularly distributed publication


generally about one main topic that is of interest to its
subscribers. Newspapers and leaflets are types of
newsletters. Additionally, newsletters delivered
electronically via email (e-Newsletters) have gained
rapid acceptance for the same reasons email in general
is gaining popularity over printed correspondence (see
blog section of this report).

The newsletter is created to provide information of


interest to our members, customers or employees. One
of many reasons in creating a newsletter ------
“common marketing strategy”, which can have benefits
and drawbacks.

General attributes of newsletters include news and


upcoming events of the related organization, as well as
contact information for general inquiries.

SAMPLE NEWSLETTER

BLOG

The word blog is derived from the combination of the


two words web and log. ALS Blogs are virtual diaries
created by the institution and can be viewed and has
been stored on the internet. ALS Blogs generally
consist of text, images and videos to meet the
organizations goal(s), attract investors/sponsors for the
less fortunate and to take advantage of the invention
to further announce the ALS project(s).

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

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 low-
volume 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
it can cause being a Filipino.
109 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008
The List of all other topics is posted on ALS-San Carlos Web Log(s).

CHAPTER 4: DALSC IMPLEMENTED


PROJECTS

A Billboard hit song sang by Whitney Houston entitled “Greatest Love of All’
states in her first line of lyrics “I believe the children are our future” capture
the audience. It is because it is true. Nurturing these helpless individual is like
helping and building a great future.

BASIC LITERACY

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

111 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008


learning programs designed to address their needs
specifically; the program seeks to help illiterates to:

1. Read, write and compute simple number problems


to use these skills to achieve their life goals;

2. To develop their potentials fully; and

3. Improve their income generating habits and skills.

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.

A,B,C,1,2,3,..YES LITERACY IS ON ME

The latest functional literacy education and mass media survey states that
a number of illiterates have dramatically increases as the National Population
increases as well. 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.

hand information as to how are we going to develop the curriculum that will
address to this “next generation’. Retention and keeping their interest in study is
one of the primary goals of the said field study. The field study has been
conceptualized and was being incorporated as part of our teaching strategy for
the kids ranging this kind of age.

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.

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 27-
32 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.

NOMINATED FOR OUTSTANDING DISTRICT


COORDINATOR

CONSTRUCT INDUSTRY BASED CURRICULUM


UNDER TESDA’S SO NC II QUALIFICATION
AND R.A. 9155 FRAMEWORK

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

The relationship I have with these institution results the


creation of the project (Computer Literacy), the
learners job assessment and employment. Truly, no
man is an island!

TRAINED 450 STUDENTS AS OF JULY 2008

Currently, the Computer Literacy projects I’ve


implemented 18 months ago give privileges and
opportunities to those 450 learners! Not to mention the
remote classes and activities that involves my other
existing projects offers.

PROVIDE EXIT POINTS AND LADDERIZATION


PROGRAM

The ladderized scheme of ALS-San Carlos ---- level of


Literacy:

131 | P a g e MEMORANDUM NO. 269, s. 2008


Basic Literacy consists of zero knowledge.

Livelihood program comprises of sessions such as


Typing, Hair Science, Cooking and Baking.

A&E graduates can further continue to study


Computer Literacy where they have the privileged to
pursue College, Technical Education TESDA offers, or
University.

Within the level of literacy program, there are


numerous exit points where all in all, students gain the
opportunity to learn and earn jobs.

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!

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”

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.
