  • Operated by a State University or College (SUC) or a Local University or College (LUC);
  • Managed by a government agency other than DepEd (for example: DOST, NCCA, or LGU, among others); or
  • A private education institution registered under Philippine corporation laws.

Enhanced Basic Education Information System (EBEIS)

As soon as a new school becomes operational, you can create its profile and register it in the EBEIS.

Need to Know

  • Only the Regional Office (RO) can enlist and encode new school profiles.
  • The school and the Schools Division Office (SDO) can edit the existing or newly created school profile once the region finishes creating the profile.
  • If the school received a School ID from the previous school year but failed to create their school profile, they must request a new School ID from their respective RO.
    • The school must possess either a recognition or a permit to operate for the current school year to receive a new School ID.
    • The RO processes the request; once done, the school shall use the new School ID and disregard the old one.

You can add the following school types in the EBEIS:

  • Public integrated schools (offering both elementary and secondary levels including Senior High School);
  • Elementary schools (public, private, and SUC/LUC, offering Kinder to Grade 6);
  • and Secondary schools (public, private, and SUC/LUC, offering Junior High School, Senior High School, or both).

Must Know

  • Schools SHOULD NOT contact the Central Office (CO) directly to add or edit their profiles in the EBEIS.
  • SDOs MUST NOT refer any school directly to the CO to request modifications in EBEIS profiles.
