DepEd Statement on the slay of SDS Marcom Borongan

The Department of Education (DepEd) strongly condemns the killing of Marcom Borongan, the newly installed Schools Division Superintendent (SDS) of Zamboanga Del Sur.

SDS Borongan was gunned down in San Jose Elementary School in Pagadian City during a thanksgiving and turnover ceremony on the evening of July 3.

We, at DepEd, condemn all forms of violence especially as they occur in schools. We maintain that schools are zones of peace where the safety and well-being of students, teachers, and personnel are of utmost importance.

The Department also offers its sincere condolences to the family of SDS Borongan. We are one with them in this time of bereavement.

Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones has instructed DepEd Region 9 Director Isabelita Borres to closely monitor the developments on the case and ordered the release of monetary benefits. Police authorities are also called on to prudently identify and arrest the perpetrators of this heinous crime.

At this crucial time, we enjoin everyone to help safeguard peace and order in our communities. As in other similar incidents, we will work hand in hand with our local officials and law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety of our personnel and to maintain peaceful communities for our learners.
