 Ernesto Robles, ALS supervisor, said that after meeting with parents they have set the graduation on March 27, 2014 of 268 test passers in high school and nine in elementary or a total of 277.

   The city supervisor said those who passed attended ALS in different barangays in Balanga every Mondays and Wednesdays from January to October this year.

   “This is in line with the desire of Mayor Jose Enrique Garcia III to wipe out illiteracy in 25 barangays of the city and for them to be able to pursue higher education,” Robles said.

   Graduates in the Alternative Learning Center have the same privilege as graduates in any public or private secondary and elementary schools. 

   ALS graduates in high school can enroll in any college or university as long as they satisfy the requirements of the school, Robles said.

   He said the ALS program started in 1998. In 2013, some 267 graduated.
