DepEd reiterates call for early enrollment for SY 2012-2013

by Lilibeth A. French

ILOILO CITY, Jan. 16 (PIA6) -- The Department of Education has once again called on parents in the region to enlist their school-aged children for school year 2012-2013.

Director Mildred Garay, in a radio interview, told parents to bring their incoming kindergarten and Grade 1 children to the public elementary schools nearest them.

She said the documentary requirement for early registration is the birth certificate but if it is not yet available, it could be submitted later.

DepEd has declared January 28 this year as the early registration date for the school year 2012-2013 in all public elementary and secondary schools nationwide.

Carrying the theme “Makapag-aral ay Karapatan Mo, Magpalista Ngayong Enero,” the early registration aims to achieve the Millennium Development Goals on Universalization of Primary Education and the objectives of the Education for All.

Specifically, it seeks to enlist all five year-old children in kindergarten and for six year-olds to enlist for Grade 1.

Also, it intends to guarantee enrollment of out-of-school children and out-of-school youth from the disadvantaged groups, indigenous people and street children ages five to 18 in their preferred education delivery system, either formal or alternative learning system.

The activity further aims to keep a record of the out-of-school children and youth with disabilities, ages 5 to 18 years old to provide them with appropriate education intervention.

It will also enable the central, regional and division of DepEd to prepare the Three Year Catch Up Plan in Basic Education from SY 2012-2013 to 2014-2015 in order to accommodate the registered learners.

Likewise, it will enable DepEd in collaboration with the local government units, barangay officials, parents-teachers associations, civil society or civic organizations and the business sector to make the necessary preparations and to address potential resource needs in time for the opening of classes in June. This move also aims to provide education interventions to prevent pupils and students from dropping out from school.

All children who were born on October 31, 2007 or earlier are eligible for early enrollment for Kindergarten while those born on October 31, 2006 or earlier, with or without Kindergarten experience, for Grade 1. (LAF/PIA6)
