Public schools in the Philippines shall open its doors for early registrations from January 26 to February 22, 2019.  The early registration is for incoming Kindergarten, Grades 1, 7, and 11 students and shall be done in compliance with the Department of Education’s Order (no. 3 series of 2018) or the Basic Education Enrollment Policy.  Their primary purpose is to help the DepEd locate out-of-school kids that are interested to enroll and continue with their studies.

While the said public schools shall have designated Early Registration Desks or Registration Centers in the school’s premises, DepEd personnel will also conduct house-to-house campaigns, meetings with local barangay officials and civic organizations, and other activities to help them locate as many children as possible.  Among those they will be targeting are:

  • Learners with disabilities;
  • Learners living in an off-grid community;
  • Those that reside in barangays that do not have schools;
  • Those that reside in a geographically isolated area, making it difficult for children to come to school;
  • Displaced due to natural disasters;
  • Those living in armed conflict areas, or areas with high levels of criminality/drug abuse;
  • Learners who are chronically ill, have nutritional problems, victims of child abuse or economic exploitation;
  • Stateless or undocumented, in conflict with the law, living on the streets.

On the other hand, incoming Grades 2 to 6, Grades 8 to 10, and Grade 12 learners are considered pre-registered and no longer need to participate in the Early Registration campaign.

The following shall be required of students who shall participate in the early registration campaign:

This order shall be implemented nationwide.
