DepEd to subsidize SHS fees through voucher program


The Department of Education (DepEd) will be subsidizing fees of Grade 10 completers from public and private Junior High Schools (JHS) who want to enroll in a (1) private high school, (2) private university or college, (3) state or local university or college, or (4) technical-vocational school, which will offer Senior High School (SHS) starting SY 2016-2017.

The detailed guidelines on the implementation of the Senior High School (SHS) Voucher Program (VP) through DepEd Order 46, s. 2015 states that all Grade 10 completers of public JHS, including  State Universities and Colleges (SUC)/Local Universities and Colleges (LUC) JHS are qualified voucher recipients (QVR) and shall receive the full voucher value. Grade 10 Education Service Contracting (ESC) grantees from ESC participating schools are also QVRs and will be given 80% of the voucher value. 

Non-ESC students from private JHS can apply for vouchers subject to an assessment of their socioeconomic status. If deemed qualified, they will also receive 80% of the voucher value. 
A QVR who successfully enrolls in a non-DepEd SHS Provider becomes a Voucher Program Beneficiary (VPB). The SHS Voucher Program will only cover two years regardless of the number of years it takes for the student to finish SHS. Vouchers are only valid if redeemed within the first semester of the school year immediately after the completion of JHS. Voucher payments will be released on a per semester basis to the SHS provider where the VPB is enrolled.

A VPB will face disqualification from participation in the SHS VP if he/she drops out in the middle of the school year; does not re-enroll the following school year (unless the reason for leaving school is due to health reasons and that the period of medical leave is not more than one school year); is retained in the same grade level; transfers to another SHS provider within the school year; and/or transfers to a DepEd SHS provider.

A VPB is allowed to shift to another strand or track after the 1st semester of Grade 11 within the same school or after Grade 11 whether in the same school or to another school. 

Application for vouchers shall commence on the second Monday of November, and shall end on the third Friday of January for manual submissions or second Friday of February for online submissions. The Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) shall post the results on its website on the third Friday of March. 

Qualified applicants will be given QVR certificates through the Online Voucher Application Portal (OVAP) website (http://ovap.deped.gov.ph). They are required to attend the registration program to be scheduled by the PEAC National Secretariat at selected areas in the regions.

DEPED appeals to private sector to support Brigada Eskwela 2016

With the new school year ushering in the implementation of the K to 12 program, the Department of Education (DepEd) is calling on the private sector to help teachers, families, local government units, and community members to support this year’s Brigada Eskwela, to ensure that schools all over the country are in peak condition.
Brigada Eskwela is a nationwide program that aims to bring together teachers, parents, and community members to prepare schools for the start of classes in June.  This year, DepEd will be holding its annual Brigada Eskwela from May 30-June 4, 2016, with the theme “Tayo Para sa Paaralang Ligtas, Maayos, at Handa Mula Kindergarten Hanggang Senior High School”.
“Our schools need to be prepared for one of the biggest changes that we have made to our education system,” said Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC. “We encourage businesses to help us deliver quality education nationwide by helping communities create clean, safe, and disaster-ready schools for our students.”
Businesses looking for volunteer opportunities for their employees can sign up with the Adopt-A-School Program and work with the schools nearest their communities.
Interested organizations are encouraged to help schools by painting roofs, ceilings, and walls, cementing existing footpaths and drains, repairing comfort rooms and wash facilities, fixing electrical wiring, repairing and repainting chairs, desks, and furniture, repairing broken windows, jalousies, and doors, cleaning up school grounds, and replacing school signs.
Participating organizations can also help by donating materials such as paint, cement, lumber, tiles, tools and cleaning aids, as well as teaching and learning devices, and first aid and disaster kits to the schools nearest their workplaces.
“With students moving up to Senior High School this school year, schools may need certain track-specific materials, such as farming implements, kitchen tools, sewing machines, to computers,” added Luistro. “We encourage companies to adopt our schools and collaborate with teachers, students, and parents to figure out how they can best help the community.”
