MANILA, Philippines — Private schools and non-Department of Education (DepEd) public schools may already start their classes for school year 2021-2022, the education department announced Friday.

DepEd made the announcement through an advisory dated June 23 and signed by Education Secretary Leonor Briones. A copy of the advisory was shared with the media on Friday.
