DepEd predicts no learning gap despite school year adjustments.



DepEd ensures students’ learning competencies will not be compromised in new school year

The Department of Education (DepEd) confirmed on Wednesday that President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s decision to adjust the closing dates of classes for the school year 2024-2025 will not impact students’ learning competencies.

DepEd Undersecretary Michael Poa stated that there are no expected learning deficiencies due to the change in school days. He emphasized the importance of coordinating with teachers to ensure that students continue to learn effectively each day they are in school.

President Marcos Jr. recently announced that the school year 2024-2025 will run from July 29 to April 15, a shift from the original March 31 proposal from DepEd. The adjustment was made in response to requests from the public to move the start of the school calendar back to June, citing concerns about the hot weather affecting students in schools across the country.
