This was part of the 136,950 tablets the city government plans to provide to students to be used for the blended learning system once classes resume, in view of the suspension of face-to-face classes due to the coronavirus disease pandemic.

A total of P1.234 billion from the Special Education Fund was allocated for the procurement of the laptops and tablets.
