The PEAC certification teams will visit ESC schools for recertification from August to December, 2015, in compliance with the GASTPE guideline provision that ESC schools are required to be recertified after three years from its last certification for schools with Within Standard rating or five years for those with Above Standard rating. The Certification Program is a quality assurance mechanism to ensure that ESC schools comply with the program requirements and standards set by DepEd and PEAC.
The certification teams are composed of school administrators and officials from accredited schools and PEAC-certified Above Standard schools. For 2015-2016, the certifiers underwent a training last April 10, 2015 and May 19, 2015 at Hotel Benilde in Manila and Hotel Fortuna in Cebu, respectively. Facilitated by selected certification team chairpersons, the workshop activities included the analysis of case studies, and practice in evaluating school situations and formulating recommendations. Ms. Doris F. Ferrer, PEAC National Secretariat (PEAC NS) Executive Director, talked about the PEAC, its programs of assistance, and highlights of the GASTPE program guidelines for 2015-2016. Ms. Norma A. Aguilos, Consultant to the PEAC Certification Program, gave the orientation on the certification process.
The PEAC NS Certification Unit also had a planning meeting last June 19, 2015 to discuss issues and concerns towards a more effective implementation of the program. Selected PEAC Regional Program Coordinators (RPCs), representatives from private educational associations and schools, and DepEd officials participated in the session. Plans include the release of a Certifiers’ Manual and a review of the assessment instrument that can be adopted for other modes of school delivery, among others. The schedule of school visits will be posted on this website in July.

The Department of Education (DepEd) has released the partial lists of senior high school (SHS) providers in school year 2016-2017. The parents and students will get to choose where to enroll for Grade 11 from among 3,839 DepEd schools and 1,824 non-DepEd schools, which include private high schools as well as private and public HEIs.
DepEd projects that there will be an estimated 1.6 million Grade 11 students from the public junior high schools. DepEd is preparing to accommodate 1.1 million students in DepEd SHS. There are 500,000 public junior high school graduates who are expected to enroll in non-DepEd schools. They will be among the beneficiaries of the SHS Voucher Program, along with junior high school graduates who are Educational Service Contracting (ESC) grantees. Private junior high school graduates who are non-ESC grantees may also apply to DepEd for a voucher.
DepEd has introduced the SHS Voucher Program to enable Grade 10 graduates from public and private junior high schools to enroll in SHS offered by private high schools, and private and public HEIs. Through the program, the students will be able to exercise greater choice in deciding the SHS program that they need.
