DepEd Central Luzon wants more students to enroll now
The Department of Education (DepEd) in Central Luzon is urging more students in the region to get registered for the next school year, according to a Philippine Information Agency report.
As of September 7, the enrollment figure in the region based on the Learner Information System (LIS) – Quick Count showed that only 1,854,717 learners enrolled so far in public schools, private schools and state universities and colleges/local universities and colleges that offer basic education, the DepEd said in the report.
This is only 66 percent of the projected enrollment in the region, which is 2,699,515 learners, the PIA report said.
From the figures, Grade 1-6 has the most enrollees at 742,018 or 49 percent, followed by Grade 7-10— 484,815 or 33 percent; Grade 11-12— 178,769 or 12 percent; and Kinder— 97,313 or 6 percent.
Policy, Planning and Research Division Chief Matrose Galarion clarified that DepEd is expecting more enrollees in the coming days.
“Many have been enrolled but are still not included in the LIS. Because of our current situation where it is difficult for teachers to get out, we have put drop boxes in barangays and schools,” she said.
“These forms still need to be given to class advisers for encoding. This is why encoding take times, because we can’t risk the safety of our teachers,” Galarion said.
