September 15, 2021 – The Department of Education (DepEd) is happy to announce that the enrollment figure for School Year 2021-2022 has already breached the turnout of the previous school year.
As of Wednesday, 26,308,875 learners are registered for SY 2021-2022, or 100.3% compared to last year’s enrollment. The data also shows that 11 out of 17 regions have achieved more than 100% enrollment rate, indicating that learners who did not enroll last year are returning in the basic education system. We are still expecting the figure to increase since enrollment is extended until September 30.
We thank our field offices, school heads, and teachers for their dedication and hardwork in encouraging the public to enroll. Likewise, we are grateful to the parents of our learners who continue to put their trust and support in DepEd and for learning continuity amidst the pandemic.
