These are schools with multi-grade classes, have less than five teachers, and a population of fewer than 100 learners, the majority of whom are indigenous peoples.DOH, Bohol PHO and DepEd shall be working together in the identification, monitoring, and evaluation of the schools with disadvantaged students who do not have sufficient access to quality education during the COVID-19 pandemic.
