IMPLEMENTING GUIDELINES ON THE CONDUCT OF OFF-CAMPUS ACTIVITIES
The implementation of the K to 12 Curriculum by the Department of Education (DepEd) is geared toward the holistic development of the learner. As such, the DepEd recognizes the value of experiential learning as a holistic learning model through which the learner develops mastery of target competencies by first obtaining conceptual understanding, followed by its application to authentic situations, and finally reflection on the experience gained. In support of this learning process, relevant off-campus activites are being implemented by the DepEd at the different governance levels to supplement and enhance classroombased theories and concepts with immersive activity-based learning experiences.
To ensure that these off-campus activities attain the intended purpose, DepEd recognizes the necessity of updating and improving existing guidelines into a comprehensive policy. The relevance of off-campus activities vis-a-vis the K to 12 Curriculum shall be / given utmost importance in organizing such activities. At the same time, while the Department seeks to enhance the learning experience by spearheading the conduct of off-campus activities, the safety and security of all participants, namely, the learners, their parents/guardians, and DepEd personnel should be highly considered.
Given these, DepEd shall establish standards and procedures in the conduct of Off-Campus activities involving learners, teachers and relevant offices in the DepEd to maximize the gains from such activity and ensure its alignment with the overall learning outcomes. Additionally, this policy aims to provide general and specific guidance pertaining to the roles of relevant stakeholders, safety and security measures, and accountability mechanisms.
This policy covers the implementation and management of co-curricular and extra-curricular off-campus activities in all public and private schools.
