1. In line with the government’s thrust to provide accessible, relevant and quality education to all Filipino children and youth, the Department of Education (DepEd) adopts and utilizes the modified school forms (SFs) effective End of School Year (EoSY) 2013-2014 in all public elementary and secondary schools. The modified SFs have undergone extensive review, validation and consultation with end-users at various levels of the agency. Consistency and alignment with the Department’s thrusts and directions particularly with the K to 12 Program have also been considered. The utilization of the modified forms will allow all public school teachers and school heads to focus on the core business of curriculum delivery.

The cut-off period for recording the Beginning of School Year (BoSY) Reports in all the SFs will be every Friday of the first week of classes of each SY. School heads will be held accountable and liable for any deliberate wrongful entry on the forms.
6. The SFs 1-6 will be available for download in the LIS with pre-loaded basic information on learners based on the most recent records available.

As an interim strategy and until such time when the LIS and Human Resource Information System (HRIS) are fully operational, the SFs templates in MS Excel Spreadsheet format are available for download through the DepEd website: http: / /www.deped.gov,ph /index.php /resources /school-forms. Also available in the site is an instructional video on the use of the new school forms.
8. The Office of the Planning Service (OPS) will coordinate and monitor the utilization and implementation of the modified SFs and shall serve as helpdesk that will receive and respond to any inquiries and issues. Queries and implementation issues may be communicated to Mr. Jonathan F. Diche of the OPS through email address: email@example.com or through telephone no.: (02) 635-3983 and telefax no.: (02) 633-7256.
