DepEd starts early registration for school year 2023-2024
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) has started early registration for incoming kindergarten, Grades 1, 7, and 11 students in public schools.
The registration began on Wednesday, (May 10, 2023) and will go on until June 9, 2023.
The department said incoming students enrolling in kindergarten and Grades 1, 7, and 11 in public elementary and secondary schools must “pre-register or participate in the early registration.”
“[This is] to allow the Department to make the needed preparations and adjustments of plans for the incoming school year,” DepeD said in a statement on Thursday.
Meanwhile, incoming students enrolling in Grades 2 to 6, 8 to 10, and 12 in public schools are already considered pre-registered and do not need to participate in the early registration.
Private schools are also encouraged to conduct their early registration activities during the same period.
DepEd said face-to-face transactions with schools are preferred for early registration, but schools have the prerogative to implement other means of collecting registration forms.
It added Schools Division Superintendents and School Heads would lead advocacy campaigns in their jurisdictions and encourage out-of-school children (OSC) and parents or guardians of learners to join in the early registration.
All public elementary and secondary schools are also directed to update or encode daily in the Early Registration facility in the Learner Information System (LIS) using the school head or administrator account.
DepEd said schools would use the print or electronic copies of the Basic Education Enrollment Form (Revised as of March 27, 2023) to ensure necessary information in registering incoming Kindergarten, Grades 1, 7, and 11 learners, and other data are appropriately captured.
Moreover, schools may encode in the Early Registration facility the prospective enrollees for other grade levels (Grades 2-6, 8-10, and 12) based on the previous school enrollment to get the overall picture of the expected number of enrollees for the next enrollment.
