Enrollment in schools extended until July 15

first_imgA parent submits the “Learner Enrollment Survey Form” of her child in a drop box. The Department of Education recently announced the implementation of the ‘drop box’ system located in schools and barangay halls where parents may submit enrollment documents to supplement the ongoing remote enrollment for the incoming school year. ABS-CBN NEWS “Kasi malaki ang demand (for enrollment extension) maski nagkaroon ng kalituhan kung kailan (ang pasukan), kami hindi kami nagbabago na ang talagang pag-umpisa ng klase ay August 24,” Briones said in an interview with DZBB. “Marami akong natatanggap na mga request kung pwedeng i-accomodate ‘yung mga anak nila,” she added. “Magandang senyales ito, magandang balita ito na ang parents talagang gusto nilang mag- aral ‘yung mga anak nila.” Briones, in a radio interview early on Tuesday, said the enrollment extension was decided since only around 12 million expected students are yet to be registered on the last day of enrollment on Tuesday. MANILA – The Department of Education (DepEd) has extended the enrollment period for public schools for the upcoming school year until July 15, Malacañang said Tuesday. Based on the data by DepEd, the total number of students who have enrolled for the coming school year was 15,686,506, as of 5:30 p.m. on Monday. CALABARZON has the most number of enrollees followed by Central Luzon and National Capital Region. “Extended ang enrollment until July 15. Pupwede po ba, hanggang ngayon pa lang, i-enroll na natin ang ating mga anak,” Roque said in a virtual press conference at the Palace. Citing a report from DepEd chief Leonor Briones, Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said the enrollment for school year 2020-2021 was extended to give more time for those who failed to enroll last month. DepEd set the first two weeks of June for online enrollment, while the other two weeks for “physical” enrollment, where parents and learners will submit enrollment forms remotely or via drop boxes./PNlast_img read more
