The measures decreed by the National Government, as a consequence of the COVID 19 pandemic, led to the total confinement of the students and the closure of the institution. Since 2020, the School Andino Bilingual has bet on the gradual, progressive and safe opening in alternation mode as a strategy of accompaniment at home with biosecure face-to-face meetings.
The first phase was planning to return to the institution, in the company of the municipal board for educational alternation, making the respective physical, technological and training adaptations to continue ensuring quality education in each of the areas that are carried out in the 3 educational levels. On January 12, 2021, the enlistment phase was advanced, with the organization of the Institutional Alternation Committee of the institution, in charge of the construction and formulation of the alternation plan for the Andean Bilingual and everything that this process it entailed to have our students back at the campus headquarters.
On February 24, 2021, the Municipal Education Secretariat visited our facilities through the pedagogical research and development undersecretary, with the aim of evaluating the determining areas for the reopening process. Manuel Ricardo Lopez, support professional from the Undersecretary of Pedagogical Development, verified the educational quality component of the institution and under the coordination of the education supervisor Adela Rico Caicedo, the biosafety conditions and logistical aspects were verified.
Once the institution was evaluated and verified, on March 4, 2021, the approval certificate for the opening under the alternation modality is issued. The Institutional Committee for Alternation determines that in its commitment because it is a progressive, safe and staggered entry, it will initially open the preschool level on March 9; on March 15, basic first and we ended on March 23 with basic secondary and middle school.
It is for the institution, after a year with its empty facilities, a joy and satisfaction to be able to have our Andinistas back at the headquarters and provide them with education under all biosafety protocols, forming students with academic excellence.
