MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) on Thursday released its calendar and activities for school year (SY) 2021-2022, along with a list of school activities.

In DepEd Order No. 29, the department said that face-to-face classes will remain prohibited.

“The conduct of face-to-face classes, whether partial or full scale, will not be allowed unless permitted by the Office of the President,” DepEd said.

It also confirmed President Rodrigo Duterte has approved DepEd’s recommendation to start the SY on September 13, 2021.

The school year will be composed of 209 school days — inclusive of Saturdays, and the five-day mid-year break — and shall end on June 24, 2022.

“With the compressed school year, the conduct of distance learning activities for learners on Saturday is authorized,” DepEd said.

“Should religious considerations prevent activities on Saturday, they may be conducted on a Sunday. Nonetheless, teachers will not be required to render service on Saturdays and Sundays,” it added.

Meanwhile, private schools, state and local colleges or universities may deviate from this school calendar, DepEd said.

“They may begin classes not earlier than the first Monday of June and not later than September 13, 2021,” the order read.

“Nevertheless, any deviation from the school calendar shall be reported to the respective Regional Offices (ROs) in advance,” it added.
