Enrollment Procedures (Paragraph V of DepEd Order No. 32, s. 2021)
In keeping with strict physical distancing measures, enrollment for SY 2021-2022 shall primarily be administered remotely particularly in areas under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) and Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ). However, parents and guardians may physically submit the Modified Learner Enrollment and Survey Forms (MLESF) in schools in lower-risk areas (i.e., those under General Community Quarantine (GCQ) and Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ) and lower) subject to strict observance of existing health protocols. Teachers and non-teaching personnel of schools who will be assigned to manage the enrollment are preferably vaccinated. Schools may also implement the dropbox enrollment method similarly to last school year.
The school enrollment focal person (SEFP) shall receive all submitted MLESF and turn them over to grade-level coordinators, who shall then distribute them to prospective advisers. Prospective advisers shall encode the MLESF in the LIS BOSY Facility.
What is Modified Learner Enrollment and Survey Form (MLESF)?
Modified Learner Enrollment and Survey Form (MLESF) is a tool that will be used to register learners for the school year and gather information on the household capacity to facilitate the administration of various learning modalities (i.e., available devices, possible facilitators, etc.).
