School Form 10 for Junior High School (SF10-JHS) standardizes the permanent record of learners in Junior High Schools (JHS). The form was revised to include only necessary and permanent data elements classified into two broad categories, namely, the Learner’s Personal Information and the Learner’s Academic Progress and Achievement across the grade levels in JHS.
The Learner’s Personal Information shall be accomplished first in the upper part of the form. For uniformity, only the official DepEd logo and seal are to be printed in the SF10-JHS. However, it is recommended that the school dry seal be affixed in the certification box which shall be accomplished when the learner completes the requirements in Grade 10 and is eligible for promotion to SHS or if the learner shall transfer out to another school.
The School Name shall be indicated on each table for every grade level along with the School ID. All learning areas in the K to 12 Curriculum are indicated in the table and sorted in the same order as the SF9-JHS (formerly Form 138 or the Learner’s Report Card). There are more than six (6) tables provided in the SF10-JHS to accommodate the filling out of reports for cases of learners no longer in school or retained in a particular grade level. Additional pages may be prepared if needed.
If a particular learning area shall not be taught for a particular grade level, then the quarterly ratings for this subject must be left blank. Ratings for Music, Arts, Physical Education, and Health must also be indicated. The rating for MAPEH shall be the average of the ratings for the said learning areas. The Final General Average shall be the sum of all final ratings of all learning areas divided by the total number of learning areas in the grade level (excluding the ALIVE subjects) per DO No. 8, s. 2015.
The section on remedial classes shall record the subjects or subject areas in which the learner did not meet expectations with the final rating indicated, the relevant dates during which the remedial classes were conducted, as well as the remedial class mark and the recomputed final grade. The Certificate of Recomputed Final Grade duly noted by the School Head should also be attached to the learner’s SF10-JHS.
The certification shall be accomplished when the learner has completed the requirements of Grade 10 and is eligible for promotion to Senior High School or when the learner shall transfer to another school. The School Name and School ID of the school where the learner is coming from should be indicated. This shall be signed by the School Head and the School Dry Seal should be affixed to make the SF10-JHS authentic and official.
Procedures in Preparation of SF10-JHS
The Grade 7 class adviser will prepare one (1) copy only of SF10-JHS and attach the certified true photocopy of SF10-ES along with other relevant supporting documents.
If the Form 137 or SF10-ES is not available due to learner’s acceleration, the certified true copy of assessment result or certificate shall be used as reference and attachment in SF10-JHS.
If the learner continues his/her studies in the same JHS, the SF10-JHS will be forwarded by the Grade 7 adviser to the Grade 8 adviser. The receiving adviser will make the necessary updating in the same SF10-JHS he/she received. The same procedure will be followed in the succeeding grade levels until the learner completes Grade 10.
If the learner transferred out to continue to another JHS, the receiving JHS shall request the transfer of original copy of SFlO-JHSand other pertinent documents. The originating JHS, upon receipt of a written request or system notification of transfer through the LIS, whichever comes first, will create one certified true copy of SF1O-JHS for their file and send the original SFlO-JHSalong with other pertinent document to the receiving JHS. The receiving JHS will update the LIS once the documents have been received, and will continue filling up the original SF1O-JHS. Section V Guidelines on Learner’s School Record and Section VI Other Provisions as stipulated in DO 54, s. 2016 shall be strictly followed.
The JHS where the learner completed his/her junior high school level shall keep the original copy of SF10-JHS. If the learner requests for additional copies for his/her employment, or for any reason other than to enroll for Senior High School (SHS), the school may create a certified true copy from the original SF10-JHS. The certified true copy that has the school seal and School Head’s signature in ink shall be provided to the learner.
If the learner proceeded to SHS, the JHS, upon receipt of a written request or system notification of transfer through the LIS whichever comes first, will create one certified true copy of SFlO-JHSand send it along with other pertinent documents such as copy of SF10ES to the requesting SHS. The receiving SHS, through the Grade 11 adviser, shall use the certified true copy of SF10-JHS as a reference to create SF10-SHS. Provisions stipulated in DO 69, s. 2016 shall be strictly observed.
Any erasures or alterations on the document should be validated and bear the signature of the School Head in ink.
The SF10-JHS shall be prepared at the end of school year or in the event of learner transfers within the school year.
The SF10-JHS shall be printed using ordinary legal size bond paper. Commercial printing that will result in unnecessary expenses is hereby discouraged.
