Here’s the copy of the DepEd Basic Education Enrollment Policy as per DepEd Order No. 03 series of 2018.
What is Basic Education Enrollment Policy?
The Department of Education (DepEd) issues the enclosed Basic Education Enrollment Policy for School Year 2018-2019 and the subsequent years thereafter, to institutionalize an efficient enrollment process in public and private schools, and state/local universities and colleges (SUCs/LUCs) offering basic education nationwide.
Early registration of incoming Kindergarten, Grades 1, 7 and 11 learners in public schools shall be conducted from the last Saturday of January to the last Friday of February each year. Incoming Grades 2-6, Grades 8-10 and Grade 12 are considered pre-registered.
A school may accept late enrollment provided that the learner will be able to meet eighty percent (80%) of the prescribed number of school days for each school year and the quarterly requirement to pass the grade level as governed by the latest existing DepEd issuances.
No fees shall be collected from schoolchildren during enrollment. For membership fees and contributions that may be collected on voluntary basis after enrollment, refer to the latest existing applicable DepEd issuances. Non-payment of voluntary contributions shall not prohibit enrollment of learners.
