Checkmyschool.org Evaluates 2011 Operations, Launches “Operation Thank You”
Initiated by the National Team of Checkmyschool.org (CMS), an assessment of CMS operations for 2011 and the outcomes of the Synchronized Community Validation of School Information was conducted at El Cielito Inn in Baguio City from 28 to 31 October 2011. CMS Infomediaries from all over the Philippines participated in the assessment.
An internal assessment and evaluation of the performance of the technical team was also conducted on 26 October 2011 at the Ateneo School of Government.
One highlight of the Baguio assessment is the consultation and planning session with CMS Infomediaries on CMS Operation Thank You. CMS Operation Thank You aims to provide resolution to at least one problem from participating schools identified during the Synchronized Community Validation of School Information held between August and October 2011. Some problems of schools identified during the synchronized community validation of school information include faulty and dilapidated school facilities, insufficient number of textbooks, seats and other equipment, and lack of operational funds.
CMS Operation Thank You is an attempt to deliver good news to participating CMS sites by bringing the schools’ concerns to the local and national government offices and other stakeholders that can help provide concrete resolutions. CMS Operation Thank You aims to bring improvements and solutions to school issues, in time for the holiday season.
At present, CMS has 14 pilot areas—Manila, Taguig, Pateros, Rizal, Baguio, Benguet, Tacloban, Leyte, Cebu, Iloilo, Dumaguete, North Cotabato, Zamboanga, and Pagadian City.
