Mayor Vico Sotto said the city government allotted P1.2 billion for the procurement of gadgets such as laptops and tablets.

"Binasag natin ang mga alkansya natin para makabuo ng P1.2 billion para sa learning devices ng ating mag-aaral," he added.

Sotto said the laptops will be given to teachers in Pasig City who still do not have laptops for teaching purposes. He added that they are also for science high school students in the city.

Meanwhile, tablets worth P6,000 each will be given to elementary students while those priced at P7,000 will be provided to high school students, according to Sotto.
