Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones has authorized all regional directors to commence the progressive expansion phase of face-to-face classes for both public and private schools.

The following main parameters for expansion are expected to be addressed:

1. Expansion schools have been validated as compliant with the standards of School Safety Assessment Tool (SSAT)
2. Schools must be located in areas under alert levels 1 and 2 based on the periodic risk assessment by Department of Health
3. Schools may already include other grade levels based on the capacity of schools
4. Schools or Division must have secured the concurrence of the Local Chief Executive in the City or Municipality where the expansion school is located, and the schools must also have taken the proper coordination with their respective barangay officials.
5. Students participating in the face-to-face classes must have the written consent of their parents.
6. Schools are given flexibility in contact time for teaching and learning, provided that meals are not taken in school except during managed recess.
7. Only vaccinated teachers may participate in the face-to-face classes, and vaccinated learners shall be preferred.
