According to the calendar upon DepEd Order 7, series of 2013, the opening of classes will be on Monday June 3, 2013 and the last day shall be on Monday, March 31, 2014.
DepEd secretary Bro. Armin Luistro said that the action “manifests DepEd’s thrust to bring all school-aged children and out-of-school youth back to school.” This long registration schedule will give favorable time for the students as well as to the parents for a more convinient way on the enrollment process.
He also added that they had enlisted the assistance of the barangay officials along with the teachers to have the out-of-school childrens, out-of-school youths, street childrens as well as the school-aged to get back to the schools.
