UPDATE: Enrollment period extended until July 15, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque announced.

DepEd said that there are currently 18.08 million enrollees from public schools, while over 900,000 enrollees are from private schools.

DepEd earlier released an infographic to help parents on the enrollment process and guidelines. In keeping with strict physical distancing measures to prevent spread of COVID-19, the agency discouraged physical enrollment in schools and similar activity.

"The first two weeks shall completely be remote enrollment, where there will absolutely be no face-to-face. Schools shall exhaust all possible means to conduct remote enrollment.

Unless otherwise necessary, any form of physical submission of enrollment data shall only be done on the 3rd week of the enrollment period, which will be done in coordination with local government units (LGUs)," DepEd said.

Here's DepEd step-by-step modified enrollment guide for SY 2020-2021:

1. For DepEd only: designation of teachers and enrollment focal persons (EFPs) to facilitate enrollment

Class advisers shall be assigned to facilitate the remote enrollment of learners in their advisory class from the previous school year (2019-2020).

Teachers without advisory class shall be appointed as EFP. Their function is to accommodate kindergarten, transferees and Balik-Aral enrollees. Meanwhile, Alternative Learning System (ALS) teachers shall act as EFPs in order to accommodate ALS enrollees.

2. Communication between parents/learners and teachers for the remote enrollment

A. For Grades 1-12 learners

Parents of incoming Grades 1-12 learners will be contacted by the previous advisers for remote enrollment. However, parents/guardians may also reach out to their child’s adviser for enrollment through the contact numbers published by the school.

Making physical appearance in school for enrollment purposes shall be the last option for parents/guardians and/or learners. Such appearances shall be guided by the minimum health and safety protocols in the locality, and properly coordinated as to date and time, and with LGU officials up to the barangay level.

B. For incoming kindergarten enrollees

Parents of incoming kindergarten learners shall communicate their intent to enroll their children via digital and/or physical enrollment platforms established by schools.

C. For transferees

Learners planning to transfer from one school (“the originating school”) to another (“the receiving school”) shall directly contact the receiving school through its published enrollment contact details.

D. For Balik-Aral enrollees

All Balik-Aral enrollees shall directly contact preferred schools. Receiving schools shall register enrollee’s enrollment and survey data.

E. For ALS enrollees

ALS enrollees may communicate their intent to enroll via digital and/or physical enrollment platforms established by schools and barangays with community learning centers (CLCs). The form to be used is ALS Form 2 (Annex B)) based on DepEd Order No. 58, s. 2017. This will be made available in digital and physical format.

3. Collection of Learner Enrollment and Survey Form (LESF)

It shall adopt various means to ensure safety of all involved parties such as phone call, SMS messaging, and online submission. Parents/guardians shall only use printed LESFs as a last resort for enrolling their child in school.

NOTE: Schools shall publish the contact number of schools and/or designated teachers for queries and enrollment procedures.

You may also download the LESF (available in English and Filipino) and ALS Enrollment Form here.

In the event that parents/guardians are not able to submit enrollment data through the established remote platforms, schools, in close coordination with LGUs, shall set up physical platforms (i.e. kiosk/booth) to collect LESFs.

4. For DepEd only: encoding of LESF data upon collection in the provided template while waiting for their respective Learner Information System (LIS) encoding schedules.

NOTE: Public and private schools shall complete their encoding of LESF data in the LIS EOSY module no later than July 07, 2020.

5. Submission of documentary requirements

Deadlines for the submission of documentary requirements required under Section V-A of DepEd Order No. 03, s. 2018 shall be deferred to December 2020. This shall apply in both public and private schools.

Requirements under DO 3, s. 2018:
  • PSA Birth Certificate (formerly NSO)
  • Learner School Form 9 (Form 138) for Grades 1-12 only

We do have gadgets but all of which was provided by work and should only be used for work since my husband has been working from home. we do not let our children access the computer unless for school work, they do not have cellphones because they are not allowed since these has been the advice for parents and children since these millenia started.
