To all the students and parents
To all the students and parents,
Cavite State University, like any other academic institutions, government agencies and private entities in the country and the world, is experiencing a great challenge brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a test to the ability and preparedness of not only the officials of the government and the University, but also of the students and their families. This has affected our daily activities, our jobs and even the process of teaching and learning.
This coming Monday, September 7, 2020, the University and all its branches around the province will start the semester. Flexible learning modalities approved by the Board of Regents by virtue of Resolution No. 18 dated August 6, 2020 will be implemented.
Flexible learning modalities is a combination of both online/offline, modular and other methods of delivering instruction to enhance students’ knowledge. This is the first time it will be used by the University. We know that no one can be considered yet as an expert in this flexible learning in the midst of the pandemic, hence, we seek for your utmost patience and support.
For parents, please do not solely depend on the efforts of the teachers and the University for the learning of the students. In the same way, teachers must also be more considerate of the situation of their students. Partnership is what we need.
Rest assured that the University will do its best to continue giving quality education like before. Trainings and orientations for teachers in relation to innovative ways of facilitating learning, including the preparation of modules and the use of the free learning management system, are almost done.
We have also improved the internet infrastructure with enhanced bandwidth and the use of other technologies that will help the students as they gain new knowledge and skills this semester. With the help of the Department of Information and Communications Technology, the University will be providing free “wi-fi connection” in all its branches. DICT has placed the needed infrastructure which is expected to be used this September.
With all the challenges we are facing, the University is once again asking for cooperation from all sectors – the teachers, the staff, the students, the parents and the local government and all its relevant branches – as we continue pursuing quality education amidst the pandemic. Meanwhile, the University will strive to bring joy in the students’ campus life even with the uncertainties brought by this situation.
To all the students, do not lose hope, but instead, study hard. Focus on the lessons to be facilitated by the teachers and we will do our best to support you.
Despite this situation, we want to warmly welcome you to the Academic Year 2020-2021.
In God’s merciful grace, “we will heal and learn as one”.
