DepEd will not allow Physical Attendance during Enrollment for SY 2020-2021
The Department of Education stressed that there will be no physical attendance during the enrollment period from June 1-30 which will start next week. Dep Ed Secretary Leonor Briones sits with AITF during the Interagency Task Force on the Infectious Emerging Diseases (IATF-EID) meeting spearheaded by President Duterte last May 28, 2020.
Physical appearance in school during enrollment will be avoided at all costs and will only be the last option for the parents and learners. Briones made it clear that in case there is a need for a physical appearance during enrollment, such activity will be placed under minimum safety protocols in the locality. Time and date shall be closely monitored and coordinated with the Local Government Unit.
Due to the threat of the Covid19 virus, the Department of Education is tasked to conduct a remote enrollment system to avoid physical registration during the enrollment period.
The modified enrollment procedure shall be under the guidance of the previous advisers of the students. Teachers will also gather and input the enrollment data on EOSY-LIS ( End-of-School-Year Learner Information System). Balik-Aral, transferees, and kinder enrollees are exempted from the said procedure. The parents or guardians do not have to worry since the previous advisers of their children will notify or contact them about the enrollment procedure. They may also contact the school directly through the phone numbers published by the school.
Transferees, Balikbayan, and kinder enrollees may contact their receiving or preferred school through the published contact numbers. ALS enrollees can choose to enroll through online platforms established by schools and barangays or go directly to the preferred school.
To avoid close or physical contact among students, Dep Ed will implement blended learning wherein printed modules will be delivered to the homes of the students. They can also get these modules online and continue their learnings at the comforts of their home. Another option is to let the parents pick -up the printed modules at designated areas during a specific time of the day. DepEd may also use different channels to deliver the lessons such as televisions, radio, and through online resources such as DepEd commons. – Karie | Helpline PH
