Tuesday, August 5, 2014
THE Department of Education (DepEd) today announced the schedule of holidays--regular, special non-working, and special--for all schools in 2015.
The list, which DepEd posted on its website www.deped.gov.ph, was released after Malacañang issued earlier Presidential Proclamation No. 831, which listed the dates of holidays in the country for next year.
Education Secretary Armin Luistro said the list must be disseminated immediately to guide all DepEd offices and schools, both public and private, in planning their academic calendars.
“Information crucial to planning should be distributed with urgency; it steers decision-making functions and policies to their most efficient positions. It is a way to ensure that we are proactive in delivering the education agenda," Luistro said.
