The Government of the Republic of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front have signed the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro on October 15, 2012. To support the peace agreement, both parties have launched the Sajahatra Program.
The Department of Education (DepEd) requires all the Regional Directors (RDs) to immediately submit the Reports on the Status of All Private Elementary and Secondary Schools under their areas of responsibility on or before July 31, 2011. These reports shall be addressed to the Office of the Secretary.
The aforecited paragraphs k, l, m, n, o, and p of Section 153 of the 2010 Revised Manual of Regulations came from previous DepEd issuances which were already superseded by DepEd Order No. 92, s. 2009 and DepEd Order No. 4, s. 2010, from which Section 153 of the 2010 Revised Manual of Regulations is based. Thus, the said provisions of the superseded DepEd issuances were erroneously included in the 2010 Revised Manual of Regulations, and therefore, must be deleted therefrom.
The 2010 Revised Manual of Regulations for Private Schools in Basic Education has been issued as DepEd Order No. 88, s. 2010. However, after a careful review, there is a need to clarify certain provisions of said Manual.
This Department hereby issues the enclosed “2010 Revised Manual of Regulations for Private Schools in Basic Education” (2010 Revised Manual for brevity) for the guidance and compliance of all concerned stakeholders in basic private education.
