To the Educative Pastoral Community of DBTI,
Greetings through St. John Bosco’s dream!
As we journey towards the ‘new normal’, we assure you that the Salesians together with the faculty and staff of DBTI are continuously working on all feasible solutions to the challenges that loom before us. We appreciate your effort in reaching us through your suggestions and comments. We are one with you in your concerns and apprehensions as together, we work hand in hand amidst all the challenges on our way. As our partners in educating the young, we humbly ask for your support and understanding as we iron and carry out our plans for the coming school year to provide every Juan the best possible holistic learning experience despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are addressing you now to shed light on your queries and to help you see a clearer picture of the adjustments we altogether have to go through to rise above our current situation.
Since, DBTI will be pursuing for full online and blended learning, we have adjusted the miscellaneous fee. However, due to the demands brought about by our new modes of learning, the decrease in the miscellaneous fee is channeled to the other fees which constitutes strengthening the school’s internet connection, setting up of DBTI customized Learning Management System, and securing an online classroom platform.
For the coming school year, DBTI will be going for e-books in partnership with Don Bosco Press.
For transparency, you can access the copy of the comparative tuition and fees for school year 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 as well as the adjustments made to cater the new modes of learning.
DBTI will provide several tuition and fee payment schemes for parents to choose from.
ALTERNATIVE MODES OF LEARNING
As presented on our previous advisory, DBTI will utilize full online and blended learning as alternative modes of learning. DBTI will go about our alternative modes of learning by setting up a customized Learning Management System especially designed to address the needs of Bosconians.
A Learning Management System is an online system which is used to plan, execute, and assess a specific learning process to support and augment on-campus learning by providing space where materials can be stored and organized, assessments can be given, and both students and teachers can interact. On the other hand, an online classroom will be embedded in our LMS to ensure that teachers and students can still meet face to face even in an online platform so as not to limit interaction of the students to their teachers.
Despite the challenges of the new modes of learning, DBTI will still push through with its technical subject offerings as to these subjects are part and parcel of the whole essence of DBTI’s educative process. Addressing the concern of technical remote learning, DBTI will make use its e-technical modules and courses to deliver technical education remotely with emphasis on the process of learning.
While we are still in the midst of this pandemic, Don Bosco Victorias is doing our best to address the gaps and deliver quality education that every Bosconian deserves.
For your concerns and clarifications, please contact your Parent-Area In-Charge and you can directly contact us here in the school. We will do our best to assist you.
Our prayers and blessings!
In Don Bosco I remain,
Fr. Rooney John G. Undar, SDB
