Last Friday, October 2, the city government launched the "Blended Learning: Tele-Aral Program," which Reportr describes as "a carefully crafted curriculum and new learning system" designed to ensure kids continue to learn at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It involves modules, tutorial services, and now Tele-Aral.
One of its components is the Tele-Aral Center at the Senator Rene Cayetano Science and Technology High School. The facility has at least 70 teachers who will be on call from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays.
During the launch, Lino Cayetano, the mayor of Taguig City, explains Tele-Aral will serve Taguig City parents and kids who have questions about their modules
"Sisiguraduhin natin ngayon na lahat ng bata merong maganda at dekalidad na module. 'Pag may tanong, may tatawagan, meron maga-aadvice sa kanila. At tuloy-tuloy ang ating long term plan para implement ang blended learning sa buong lungsod ng Taguig."

Every grade level and corresponding subject area in the Tele-Aral Program has a Facebook account, manned by teachers. If a parent cannot call or has limited Internet data, they can leave a message on the Messenger app of these Facebook pages, and a teacher is expected to get back to them. It's the same process if they call the program's hotline.
