IMPLEMENTING GUIDELINES ON THE SCHOOL CALENDAR


FOR SCHOOL YEAR 2019-2020

I. Rationale

1. The Department of Education (DepEd) ensures the effective implementation of the K to 12


Basic Education Curriculum for every learner to acquire quality, accessible, relevant, and
liberating basic education. The implementation of the K to 12 Curriculum provides
opportunity and sufficient time for the learner to acquire and master lifelong learning skills
for the 21st century as well as time for other learning opportunities beyond the classroom
for more holistic development, and/or to prepare the graduates for higher education, middle
level skills development, and the world of work. Hence, schools are encouraged to adhere
to the school calendar to comply with the required number of school days for the optimum
attainment of the learning standards as well as to ensure the observance of national/local
school events and activities/celebrations. The school calendar also reflects the events and
monthly celebrations/observances for the year.

2. The policy aims to provide direction and guidance to schools in planning their respective
activities relative to curricular operations and other celebrations/observances within the
required number of school days.

II. Scope

3. The implementing guidelines for this school calendar shall be applicable to both public and
private elementary and secondary schools nationwide.

4. Private schools may deviate from this School Calendar. However, they may not start
classes earlier than the first Monday of June nor later than the last day of August, as
provided in Republic Act (RA) No. 7797 entitled An Act to Lengthen the School Calendar
from Two Hundred (200) Days to Not More than Two Hundred Twenty (220) Class
Days. Said schools should notify in advance their respective regional offices (ROs)
regarding any deviation from the school calendar.

Ill. Definition of Terms

5. For the purpose of this policy, the operational definition of the following terms are as follows:

a. Awards Committee - a committee organized by the school head to establish


processes of, standards, and timelines in determining qualifiers for awards as well
as to deliberate on the qualifications of candidates for awards and recognition.

b. Co-curricular Activities - activities and learning experiences that are undertaken


side by side with the curricular activities. These learning experiences complement
what learners are learning in school.

c. Curricular Activities - opportunities and experiences undertaken by the learners in


the classrooms, laboratories, and workshops, as well as school-based and out-of­
school activities conducted to ensure the learners' acquisition of the K to 12 lear ng i ·
standards and the 21st century skills.
