The Department of Education (DepEd) on Saturday reminded the public that the deadline for enrollment applications is June 30, Tuesday.
“The Department of Education (DepEd) is reminding those who still intend to enroll in public schools to do so on or before June 30, 2020, Tuesday, as it is about to wrap up its month-long enrollment period,” the agency said in a statement.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the agency discouraged physical enrollment and advised schools to accept enrollment through remote submissions of forms via drop boxes.
Authorities have also advised education to prepare for distance learning methods – involving online or offline teaching methods – as face-to-face learning is suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The school year is set to begin on August 24.
Around 15,182,075 students have enrolled, among them 14,548,915 in public schools.
For questions, DepEd urged the public to contact their barangay or the nearest division office or school.
