EARLY REGISTRATION DAY IN ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS
To achieve the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) in education and a universal participation in basic education, the DepEd (Department of Education) declares January 29, 2011 as registration day for the Kindergarten, Elementary, and Secondary levels in all public schools within its jurisdiction.
Outstanding teacher awardee Eva Imingan said this is a boost to the initiatives of City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon, Jr. on education as part of his HELPS program.
The goals of this early registration are as follows: Kindergarten and Elementary: to reach out to all 5- and 6-year-old children and elementary school children and ensure their enrollment in SY 2011-2012. Secondary: to guarantee the enrollment of prospective graduates of Grade Six in SY 2011-2012; to enable the Department in collaboration with the local government units (LGUs) to make the necessary preparation and address potential resource needs in time for the opening of classes in June; and to support schools in their efforts of providing education interventions to prevent children/youth from dropping out from school.
A tremendous support movement shall be carried out at all levels in the Department starting January 10.
On January 10-28, 2011, Child or Youth Find Activities shall be introduced at the division and school levels in partnership with the Barangays.
Children who are born on October 31, 2006 or earlier shall be accepted for early enrollment in Kindergarten. Those who are born on October 31, 2005 or earlier, with or without Kindergarten experience, shall be qualified for early enrollment. The required document to be passed is the birth certificate of the child which can be submitted either in June or within the school year. This shall be the documentary basis.
All Early Registration Forms for Kindergarten, Grade One and First Year high school shall be submitted to the Division Office on or before February 4, 2011 to the Schools Division/City Superintendent, the Department of Education announced.
Students who are not presently registered in Grade Six but have finished this grade level and who want to be listed in First Year High School shall present their Grade Six Card to the Teacher-in-Charge of the registration. If the report card is not procurable, a signed Certification Report by the parent/guardian could be shown.
One of the HELPS program of the city Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr. is Education. As the theme goes, “Makapag-aral ay Karapatan Mo, Magpalista Ngayong Enero.”
All prospective students, elementary and high school students are encouraged to come for an early registration on January 29, 2011 at their respective schools.
