MANILA -- The Department of Education has scheduled Jan. 28 to Feb. 24 as early registration for Kindergarten up to Grade 10 students in all public elementary and secondary schools nationwide for school year 2017-2018.
The move aims to address possible issues and concerns the department is likely to face in June, it said in a press release issued Thursday.
The effort also aims to ensure that all five-year-old children are enrolled in Kindergarten, and to identify, locate, and enroll out-of-school children and youths who are in remote areas or difficult circumstances.
"Learners with certain exceptionalities, which require unique learning interventions, are also one of the targets of this early registration initiative," the department said.
Students may register in schools where they wish to study.
School personnel meanwhile will conduct a house-to-house campaign and meet with local and barangay officials and civic organizations to help locate children who should be in school. (PNA)
