PIA Press Release

SY 2010-11 starts Tuesday, June 15

Tagbilaran City (2 June) -- Thousands of students and pupils in Bohol's public and private schools are expected to troop back when schools open on June 15.

This too as the government revs on its Balik Eskwela campaign to keep all school-age children in schools and make the teaching venues conducive to learners.

The day, June 15 would be after the country breaks for the Independence Day holiday, which is reset on the nearest Monday after June 12, shared Bohol division office representative Auxilio Cruspero during the recent Kapihan sa PIA Thursday.

While there were initial rumors about classes opening on the 14th the Department of Education corrected the opening dates while citing an amendment of its order no. 26 series of 2010.

Paragraph 2 of the Department order no. 26 series of 2010 from the education department earlier pegged the beginning of the school year on Monday, June 14, 2010.

However, based on Presidential proclamation Number 1841, June 14 has been previously declared regular holiday being the Monday nearest June 12.

By this, the DepEd order number 69 series of 2010 came to correct the error.

DepEd Secretary Mona Valisno also affirmed that the school year 2010-2011 shall begin on Tuesday June 15, 2010 and shall end on April 8, 2011.

Over this, "there would be 202 school days inclusive of the 5 days INSET Break and the parent-teacher conference that shall be held on Saturdays following the week after the administration of the quarterly examinations," the order reads.

According to the education authorities, the number of school days is compulsory to public elementary and secondary schools.

As to the private schools, Sec. Valisno said they may opt to deviate from the DepED school calendar but they shall not start their classes earlier than the first Monday of June and not later than the last day of August as provided in Republic Act 7797. (PIA-Bohol) [top]
