A very important announcement from the Department of Education (DepEd) was released regarding the school year calendar for the SY 2013-2014.
DepEd had set an early registration date for the students who will enroll on public schools for the school year 2013-2014, the date was set to January 26, 2014.
DepEd said that the early registration was set to allow the government in making necessary preparations regarding the number of enrollees for the upcoming school year.
Armin Luistro, the DepEd secretary said that the action “manifests DepEd’s thrust to bring all school-aged children and out-of-school youth back to school.” This long registration schedule will give favorable time for the students as well as to the parents for a more convinient way on the enrollment process.
Luistro said that they had enlisted the assistance of the barangay officials along with the teachers to have the out-of-school childrens, out-of-school youths, street childrens as well as the school-aged to get back to the schools.
