In the official statement released last June 15, 2020, the Department of Education launched drop box enrollment for parents who do not have access to online or remote enrollment. 

The system works by making the schools coordinate with the barangay in putting up designated drop box kiosks and submission points. The school should create a box that contains printed Learner Enrollment Survey Form (LESF) copies. After the parent or guardian fill out the said form, he or she must drop the form in another box. Aside from this, the school must also place boxes in its vicinity. 

DepEd set instructions on how to conduct the new system: 

  • Drop box kiosks will only cater to those parents who do not have access to remote means (text, call, online and social media) to communicate with their schools but wish to enroll their child.
  • Only one adult from a household with quarantine pass will be allowed to go to these kiosks.
  • Parents and guardians needing assistance are advised to ask their respective barangay leadership in this transaction.
  • Parents and guardians must be familiar with the advisory of the school or barangay on designated pick up and submission points before going out.

For the past three weeks, schools have been enrolling learners via online and remote enrollment. Class advisers are calling and texting the parents as face to face process is not yet allowed. The department stated that remote enrollment is still implemented. 

Based on the official statement, there are more than ten million learners enrolled across the country. Opening of classes is set on August 24th.
