You Can Already Register Your Kids For Kinder and Grades 1, 7, and 11 Starting Jan 25Apply to schools early and make sure that your little ones get their education.by Kitty Elicay .
If you have school-age kids, you might want to take advantage of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) early registration program for incoming Kindergarten and Grades 1, 7, and 11 learners in public elementary and secondary schools. It will be a month-long initiative that will start from January 25 to February 28, 2020.
During the registration period, students will be registered, enrolled in school, and informed of policies on the collection of fees.
Apart from ensuring that all new entrants are registered for School Year 2020-2021, the initiative will also help the agency better address and prepare for possible issues and concerns during the enrollment proper.
According to the DepEd, the initiative also aims to locate, identify, and register out-of-school children and youth in the community who may be living in off-grid or far-flung areas, a barangay without a school, or a geographically isolated area; displaced due to natural disaster; living in an armed conflict area or area with high level of criminality/drug abuse; in conflict with the law; living on the streets and no longer in school. These children will be encouraged and assisted to get their education through the formal system, Alternative Delivery Mode or the Alternative Learning System (ALS).ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
