DepEd sees opening of classes on August 23

 Without any unexpected changes and fresh developments, the forthcoming school year of public elementary and high schools will begin on Aug. 23, according to an official of the Department of Education (DepEd).

“Since there is still no DepEd order, I cannot say that it is final,” DepEd Undersecretary for curriculum and instruction Diosdado San Antonio said in Filipino. “But as of today (April 27), that is what was approved.”

With the current school year set to end on July 10, students will get a six-week break before the start of the next school year.

“It will be shorter by two weeks from the previous two months… Hopefully it will not be difficult for many,” San Antonio said in a separate interview with ABS-CBN News.

Marked by a shift to distance learning due to the pandemic, the current school year started on Oct. 5 in public elementary and high schools.
