Guidelines on Enrollment for School Year 2022-2023 in the Context of the Re-Introduction of the In-person Classes


The unprecedented success of the pilot implementation and progressive expansion of in-person classes provide DepEd with concrete evidence and solid experience on how to safely reopen the schools nationwide. Consistent with the provisions of DO No. 34, s. 2022 and in preparation to the the resumption of the 5 days in-person classes that will start on November 2, 2022, the Department considered the conduct of the inperson enrollment in schools.

For the past two (2) school years, remote enrollment has been largely implemented as the main enrollment procedure due to the restrictions imposed by the health authorities. Within these periods, learners can be enrolled through phone calls, text messages, online messaging through the platforms of Facebook Messenger, Viber, and email messaging. Dropbox enrollment was also one of the options given to parents/legal guardians who have been affected by the health alert levels implemented in the various parts of the country.
