Following its commitment to resuming 5 days of in-person classes, the Department of Education (DepEd) has released guidelines on the School Calendar and Activities for School Year 2022-2023.

DepEd Order No. 034, series of 2022, signed by Vice President and Secretary Sara Z. Duterte on Monday, establishes the start of classes on August 22 and ends on July 7, 2023. There will be 203 school days, or as determined by subsequent issuances, if the school calendar is changed due to unforeseen circumstances.

DepEd also provides direction and guidance in reopening classes and the gradual introduction of 5 days of in-person learning modality classes in the issuance.

According to DO 034, s. 2022, no inspections, tools, or other additional requirements will be required to reopen schools and implement five (5) days of in-person classes, except for compliance with the usual pre-pandemic regulatory permits and licenses required by law or ordinance.

Until October 31, 2022, DepEd only prescribed five days of in-person classes, blended learning, and full-distance learning.

All public and private schools must transition to 5 days of in-person classes by November 2, 2022. Except for those implementing Alternative Delivery Modes as provided in DO 21, s. 2019 (Policy Guidelines on the K to 12 Basic Education Program) and DO 01, s. 2022, no school shall implement purely distance learning or blended learning (Revised Policy Guidelines on Homeschooling Program).

Meanwhile, the Alternative Learning System (ALS) learning intervention will officially begin on the stated opening date, with the program duration determined by the learner's educational background or existing knowledge level before enrolment in the ALS program.

Regarding school opening, the School Calendar and Activities Implementation Guidelines for SY 2022-2023 will apply to public and private elementary and secondary schools and Community Learning Centers (CLCs) across the country. The calendar may be used in private schools, state/local universities, and colleges. They may also begin classes as early as the first Monday in June and as late as the last day of August.

Enrollment will take place from July 25 to August 22, with Brigada Eskwela and Oplan Balik Eskwela beginning on August 1 and ending on August 15, respectively.

Furthermore, the Basic Education Development Plan (BEDP) 2030, Learning Recovery and Continuity Plan (LRCP), and Classroom-based System Assessments will help schools deliver the K–12 Basic Education Program effectively in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
