Only the Senior High School Shall Conduct the Graduation Rites

Clarification on DepEd Order No. 2, s. 2019 entitled School Year 2018-2019 K to 12 Basic Education Program End of School Year Rites

This is to inform all public school heads and all concerned that only the Senior High School shall conduct the graduation rites for qualified Grade 12 students. This means that instead of a graduation ceremony, Grade 6 completers shall be recognized in a moving up/completion ceremony.

Please refer to the attached Memorandum, dated 26 February 2019, from Lorna Dig Dino, Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction for details of this clarification.

In response to the queries and concerns that the Department has received concerning DepEd Order No. 2, s. 2019 entitled School Year Rites dated February 18, 2019, this Memorandum clarifies that the DepEd Order currently uploaded in the DepEd website is the corrected version. This means that instead of a graduation ceremony, Grade 6 completers shall be recognized in a moving up/completion ceremony.

There is only one basic education curriculum offered by the Department of Education, hence, there shall only be one graduation at basic education from the K to 12 Program. Only the Senior High School shall conduct the graduation rites for qualified Grade 12 students.

Immediate dissemination of this Memorandum is desired.
