Secure your spot! DepEd-GenSan urges parents to enroll kids early

The Department of Education-General Santos City has encouraged parents and guardians to enroll their children, as registration for the upcoming school year has started this week.

“Mga ka-Heneral! PALISTA NA! Enrollment Schedule for School Year 2024-2025: July 3-26, 2024,” DepEd-GenSan announced on Facebook.

It said classes for the new school year shall start on July 29.

The agency has also reminded public schools of the No Collection Policy in all public elementary and secondary schools.

DepEd’s Department Order 19, Series of 2008 prohibits public schools from imposing payment collections as pre-requisite for the enrollment of learners.

“No fees shall be collected from schoolchildren enrolling in pre-school up to Grade IV, during the enrolment period and at any time during the school year. This prohibition shall cover, among others, the authorized but voluntary contributions such as BSP, GSP, Red Cross, Anti-TB Fund and PTCA,” the order stated.
