DepEd orders accredited schools list

Manilla, Philippines --- The Department of Education (DepEd) yesterday ordered its Regional Offices (ROs) to start preparing for the submission of the list of names and addresses of private schools with permit to operate, recognition or accreditation within their respective areas of responsibility.

Education Secretary Armin Luistro, through DepEd Order No. 21 series of 2013 released to Undersecretaries, Assistant Secretaries, Bureau Directors, Directors of Services, Centers and Heads of Units, Regional Directors, Schools Division/City Superintendents, and Heads of Public and Private Elementary and Secondary Schools said the submission of accredited list of private schools is in preparation for the 2013 Oplan Balik Eskwela to be activated on May 27-31 which helps aim to address the problems commonly encountered by students during enrollment.

Luistro said the list should be submitted to the office of the Undersecretary for Regional Operations on or before May 27, 2013. "The list of private schools with permit to operate, recognition or accreditation should be posted at the ROs and Division Offices (DOs), municipal halls, and other conspicuous places," Luistro said.

This early, the DepEd encouraged parents to always check whether the private school where they intend to enroll their children is duly permitted, recognized or accredited by the DepEd because unaccredited schools might pose a problem on student's learning due to a possibly unauthorized curriculum.

In case pupils and students finished an alleged grade/year level in a school without the required permit, Luistro advised them to take the Philippine Validating Test (PVT) prior to admission to another school in order to validate the acquired learning gains.

The PVT is administered at the National Education Testing and Research Center at the DepEd Central Office. A master list of private schools with DepEd accreditation will also be available at the DepEd website, www.deped.gov.ph.
