  1. Pursuant to the 1987 Philippine Constitution and Republic Act No. 10533, otherwise known as the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013, the Department of Education (DepEd) issues the enclosed Policy Guidelines on Madrasah Education in the K to 12 Basic Education Program.    
  1. The Program aims to:
  1. provide Muslim learners with appropriate and relevant educational opportunities while recognizing their cultural context and unique purposes for participating in the Program offerings; and
  2. integrate content and competencies which are relevant and of interest to Muslim learners.
  1. This policy seeks to harmonize existing DepEd issuances on Muslim education, with new provisions for more effective and efficient program development, implementation and evaluation. Moreover, this shall also serve as the basis for the development of the Manual of Operations for the Governance and Administration of the Madrasah Education Program (MEP).  
  1. These policy guidelines will remain in force and in effect for the duration of the program, unless otherwise repealed, amended, or rescinded. All existing DepEd Orders and related issuances which are inconsistent with this Order are rescinded.
  1. Immediate dissemination of and strict compliance with this Order is directed.
