DepEd reiterates "zero collection" during enrollment

by Oliver T. Baccay

Tuguegarao City (2 June) -- The Department of Education (DepEd) Region 2 has reiterated the zero collection policy in all public elementary and high schools during enrollment.

Mrs. Clarita Lunas, Education Program Specialists, said they strictly observe the department's "zero collection" policy during enrollment because payments must not be a pre-requisite for students to enroll.

She reiterated that the payment of the usual school fees such as the Parents Teachers Community Association (PTCA) contribution and membership fees to various organizations are voluntary and should not be a requirement for the admission of any student or pupil.

"Students may settle the "voluntary fees" until the end of the school year but not to give any amount upon enrollment", Lunas said.

She further explained that the only allowed fees to be collected by teachers are the contribution of students for Boy Scout, Girl Scout, Anti-TB, Parent Teachers Association, School publication, and membership of school publication.

However, she also said that other fees not included to the allowed contributions by DepEd are already initiatives of parent teachers and community association for an agreed projects or activities for the good of the students and the school.

On the other hand, she mentioned that schools are now ready to welcome learners for school year 2010-2011. (PIA 2) [top]
