DepEd EBEIS Guide to Create School Identification (ID) Numbers


The School Identification (ID) Number is a unique and permanent six-digit number assigned to any educational institution offering basic education in the Philippines.

To acquire a School ID, the institution must offer Kindergarten, Elementary, Junior High School, Senior High School, and/or a combination of these education levels.

The school must also secure approval a permit to operate from the Regional Office, and be:

  • A DepEd-managed school (with predefined plantilla positions);
  • Operated by a State University or College (SUC) or a Local University or College (LUC);
  • Managed by a government agency other than DepEd (for example: DOST, NCCA, or LGU, among others); or
  • A private education institution registered under Philippine corporation laws.

The School ID follows this format:

DepEd School ID Format


  • Every school in the basic education system can possess only one PERMANENT and PERPETUAL School ID.
  • The School ID must be conspicuously displayed in plain sight across school facilities and in all school documents.
  • Unauthorized or fraudulent issuance of School ID is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.


As soon as a new school becomes operational, you can create its profile and register it in the EBEIS.


  • Only the Regional Office (RO) can enlist and encode new school profiles.
  • The school and the Schools Division Office (SDO) can edit the existing or newly created school profile once the region finishes creating the profile.
  • If the school received a School ID from the previous school year but failed to create their school profile, they must request for a new School ID from their respective RO.
    • The school must possess either a recognition or a permit to operate for the current school year to receive a new School ID.
    • The RO processes the request; once done, the school shall use the new School ID and disregard the old one.

You can add the following school types in the EBEIS:

  • Public integrated schools (offering both elementary and secondary levels including Senior High School);
  • Elementary schools (public, private, and SUC/LUC, offering Kinder to Grade 6); and
  • Secondary schools (public, private, and SUC/LUC, offering Junior High School, Senior High School, or both).

To start creating a school profile and request for a School ID, log in to the EBEIS using the Single Sign-On (SSO) facility as the RO system administrator.

Once you successfully enter your login information, you will gain access to the Dashboard.DepEd ebeis homepage
