The provincial government has released a financial aid amounting to P9 million to the Department of Education (DepEd) Division of Negros Occidental.

Governor Eugenio Lacson turned over the check to Provincial Schools Division Superintendent Marsette Sabbaluca during the Provincial School Board meeting held at the Capitol Social Hall last week.

The amount, sourced from the Special Education Fund, will be utilized for the upgrading of public school facilities in the municipalities of Calatrava, Candoni, and Isabela. (

“The main goal of the DepEd Division of Negros Occidental is to endeavor that education will continue even in times of disruptions. How do we do that? It is by improving practices for a better normal,” said Sabbaluca.

This is the second time in two months the provincial government released financial assistance to the DepEd Division of Negros Occidental.

Last May, Lacson also handed a P7-million check to Sabbaluca as financial assistance to improve the facilities of 64 elementary and secondary schools.
