Check My School app developer inks MOA with KCFI AFFILIATED Network for Social Accountability in East Asia and the Pacific (ANSAEAP) Foundation Inc. implemented the CheckMySchool (CMS) initiative in 2011.
CMS is a participatory monitoring initiative for the education sector in the Philippines. It aims to improve the quality of education services by bringing the participation of citizens and communities into the governance of public schools in the country.
In 2017, they came across an unfinished two-story school building that had been abandoned by its contractor since 2014. Following a report made through the CMS mobile app, the construction of the school building in Cagayan de Oro resumed in July this year.
If the CMS app is discovered by more people, school buildings left unfinished will finally be completed.
Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. shares this advocacy to promote and implement quality education in the country. This is why on its 20th year, the foundation sealed a partnership with ANSA-EAP to develop and implement projects that will elevate the state of education in the Philippines.
Since 2011, CMS has been engaging various stakeholders, particularly the Department of Education and local government units, to improve the quality of educational services in schools.
