MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) on Thursday said students can still sign up for early registration for this school year until the end of the month.

Education Undersecretary for Planning, and Human Resource and Organizational Development Jesus Mateo said the early registration for the school year 2021-2022 was extended to give parents more time to prepare.


“We will continue to accept early registrants until the end of May to give you more time to register,” Mateo said in a statement.

“Achieving 92% within the period compared to last year, for us, is already a great achievement. This is despite the challenges like restrictions and internet connection issues of parents,” Mateo said.

For her part, Education Secretary Leonor Briones said she is “happy” about the early registration results.


“It surpasses our expectations when it comes to the number of learners and parents willing to start or continue their studies,” Briones said. “Amidst the current situation, this only shows how important education is to our stakeholders.”
