WHAT IS K TO 12 PROGRAM?

The K to 12 Program covers Kindergarten and 12 years of basic


education (six years of primary education, four years of Junior High

School, and two years of Senior High School [SHS]) to provide


sufficient time for mastery of concepts and skills, develop lifelong learners,
and prepare graduates for tertiary education, middle-level skills
development, employment, and entrepreneurship.

SALIENT FEATURES

Strengthening Early Childhood Education (Universal Kindergarten)

Making the Curriculum Relevant to Learners (Contextualization and


Enhancement)

Ensuring Integrated and Seamless Learning (Spiral Progression)

Building Proficiency through Language (Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual


Education)

Gearing Up for the Future (Senior High School)

Nurturing the Holistically Developed Filipino (College and Livelihood


Readiness, let Century Skills)

STRENGTHENING EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION


(UNIVERSAL KINDERGARTEN)
Every Filipino child now has access to early childhood education through
Universal Kindergarten. At 5 years old, children start schooling and are given
the means to slowly adjust to formal education.

Research shows that children who underwent Kindergarten have better


completion rates than those who did not. Children who complete a
standards-based Kindergarten program are better prepared, for primary
education.
Education for children in the early years lays the foundation for lifelong
learning and for the total development of a child. The early years of a human
being, from 0 to 6 years, are the most critical period when the brain grows to
at least 60-70 percent of adult size..[Ref: K to 12 Toolkit]
In Kindergarten, students learn the alphabet, numbers, shapes, and colors
through games, songs, and dances, in their Mother Tongue.

MAKING THE CURRICULUM RELEVANT TO LEARNERS


(CONTEXTUALIZATION AND ENHANCEMENT)
Examples, activities, songs, poems, stories, and illustrations are based on
local culture, history, and reality. This makes the lessons relevant to the
learners and easy to understand.
Students acquire in-depth knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes through
continuity and consistency across all levels and subjects.
Discussions on issues such as Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), Climate Change
Adaptation, and Information & Communication Technology (ICT) are included
in the enhanced curriculum.

BUILDING PROFICIENCY THROUGH LANGUAGE (MOTHER


TONGUE-BASED MULTILINGUAL EDUCATION)
Students are able to learn best through their first language, their Mother
Tongue (MT). Twelve (12) MT languages have been introduced for SY 20122013: Bahasa Sug, Bikol, Cebuano, Chabacano, Hiligaynon, Iloko,
Kapampangan, Maguindanaoan, Meranao, Pangasinense, Tagalog, and
Waray. Other local languages will be added in succeeding school years.
Aside from the Mother Tongue, English and Filipino are taught as subjects
starting Grade 1, with a focus on oral fluency. From Grades 4 to 6, English
and Filipino are gradually introduced as languages of instruction. Both will
become primary languages of instruction in Junior High School (JHS) and
Senior High School (SHS).
After Grade 1, every student can read in his or her Mother Tongue. Learning
in Mother Tongue also serves as the foundation for students to learn Filipino
and English easily.

ENSURING INTEGRATED AND SEAMLESS LEARNING


(SPIRAL PROGRESSION)
Subjects are taught from the simplest concepts to more complicated
concepts through grade levels in spiral progression. As early as elementary,
students gain knowledge in areas such as Biology, Geometry, Earth Science,
Chemistry, and Algebra. This ensures a mastery of knowledge and skills after
each level.
For example, currently in High School, Biology is taught in 2nd Year,
Chemistry in 3rd Year, and Physics in 4th Year. In K to 12, these subjects are
connected and integrated from Grades 7 to 10. This same method is used in
other Learning Areas like Math.

GEARING UP FOR THE FUTURE (SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL)


Senior High School is two years of specialized upper secondary education;
students may choose a specialization based on aptitude, interests, and
school capacity. The choice of career track will define the content of the
subjects a student will take in Grades 11 and 12. SHS subjects fall under
either the Core Curriculum or specific Tracks.
CORE CURRICULUM
There are seven Learning Areas under the Core Curriculum. These are
Languages, Literature, Communication, Mathematics, Philosophy, Natural
Sciences, and Social Sciences. Current content from some General Education
subjects are embedded in the SHS curriculum.
TRACKS
Each student in Senior High School can choose among three tracks:
Academic; Technical-Vocational-Livelihood; and Sports and Arts. The
Academic track includes three strands: Business, Accountancy, Management
(BAM); Humanities, Education, Social Sciences (HESS); and Science,
Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM).
Students undergo immersion, which may include earn-while-you-learn
opportunities, to provide them relevant exposure and actual experience in
their chosen track.

TVET (TECHNICAL VOCATIONAL EDUCATION & TRAINING) NATIONAL


CERTIFICATE
After finishing Grade 10, a student can obtain Certificates of Competency
(COC) or a National Certificate Level I (NC I). After finishing a TechnicalVocational-Livelihood track in Grade 12, a student may obtain a National
Certificate Level II (NC II), provided he/she passes the competency-based
assessment of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority
(TESDA).
NC I and NC II improves employability of graduates in fields like Agriculture,
Electronics, and Trade.
MODELING BEST PRACTICES FOR SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL
In SY 2012-2013, there are 33 public high schools, public technical-vocational
high schools, and higher education institutions (HEIs) that have implemented
Grade 11. This is a Research and Design (R&D) program to simulate different
aspects of Senior High School in preparation for full nationwide
implementation in SY 2016-2017. Modeling programs offered by these
schools are based on students interests, community needs, and their
respective capacities.
NURTURING THE HOLISTICALLY DEVELOPED FILIPINO (COLLEGE AND
LIVELIHOOD READINESS, 21ST CENTURY SKILLS)
After going through Kindergarten, the enhanced Elementary and Junior High
curriculum, and a specialized Senior High program, every K to 12 graduate
will be ready to go into different paths may it be further education,
employment, or entrepreneurship.
Every graduate will be equipped with:
1.
2.
3.
4.

Information, media and technology skills,


Learning and innovation skills,
Effective communication skills, and
Life and career skills.

FREQUENTLY ASKED
QUESTIONS
What is the K to 12 Program?

The K to 12 Program covers 13 years of basic education with the following


key stages:
Kindergarten to Grade 3
Grades 4 to 6
Grades 7 to 10 (Junior High School)
Grades 11 and 12 (Senior High School)
Why are we now implementing 13 years of basic education?

The Philippines is the last country in Asia and one of only three
countries worldwide with a 10-year pre-university cycle (Angola and
Djibouti are the other two).
A 13-year program is found to be the best period for learning under
basic education. It is also the recognized standard for students and
professionals globally.

What has been done to get ready for K to 12? Are we really ready
for K to 12?

SY 2011-2012: Universal Kindergarten implementation begins


SY 2012-2013: Enhanced curriculum for Grades 1-7 implemented
2013: K to 12 enacted into Law
2014: Curriculum for Grades 11-12 finished

This 2015, we are getting ready for the implementation of Senior High School
(SHS) in SY 2016-2017
We are on the fifth year of the implementation of the K to 12 Program. Our
last mile is the Senior High School. All 221 divisions of the Department of
Education (DepEd) have finished planning and have figures on enrolment a
year in advance. These plans were reviewed by a separate team and
finalized upon consultation with other stakeholders.

Classrooms: DepEd has built 66,813 classrooms from 2010 to 2013.


There are 33,608 classrooms completed and undergoing construction
in 2014. As of DepEd is planning to establish 5,899 Senior High Schools
nationwide. As of June 22, 2015, DepEd has issued provisional permits
to 2,847 private schools set to offer Senior High School in 2016.
Teachers: From 2010-2014, DepEd has filled 128,105 new teacher
items. DepEd is targeting two kinds of teachers: those who will teach
the core subjects, and those who will teach the specialized subjects per
track. DepEd will hire 37,000 teachers for Senior High School for 2016
alone.
Textbooks: Learning materials are being produced for elementary to
junior high while textbooks for Senior High School (which has
specialized subjects) are being bid out.
Curriculum: The K to 12 curriculum is standards- and competencebased. It is inclusive and built around the needs of the learners and the
community. The curriculum is done and is available on the DepEd
website. It is the first time in history that the entire curriculum is
digitized and made accessible to the public.

Private SHS: There are 2,847 private schools cleared to offer Senior High
School as of June 22, 2015.
How will the current curriculum be affected by K to 12? What
subjects will be added and removed?

The current curriculum has been enhanced for K to 12 and now gives
more focus to allow mastery of learning.

For the new Senior High School grades (Grades 11 and 12), core
subjects such as Mathematics, Science and Language will be
strengthened. Specializations or tracks in students areas of interest
will also be offered.
Changes to specific subjects are detailed in the K to 12 Curriculum
Guides, viewable and downloadable at bit.ly/kto12curriculum.

How will schools implementing special curricular programs such as


science high schools, high schools for the arts, and technical
vocational schools be affected by K to 12?
Schools with special curricular programs will implement enriched curriculums
specific to their program (e.g. science, arts) following the K to 12 standards.
How will multi-grade teaching be affected by K to 12?
Multi-grade teaching will continue and will use the K to 12 Curriculum.
How will specific learning groups such as indigenous people, Muslim
learners, and people with special needs be affected by K to 12?
The K to 12 Curriculum was designed to address diverse learner needs, and
may be adapted to fit specific learner groups.
Under K to 12, will Kindergarten be a pre-requisite for entering
Grade 1?
Yes. Republic Act No. 10157, or the Kindergarten Education Act,
institutionalizes Kindergarten as part of the basic education system and is a
pre-requisite for admission to Grade 1.
With K to 12, will there be an overlap between the Day Care
program of Local Government Units (LGUs) and DepEd
Kindergarten?
No. Day Care Centers of LGUs take care of children aged 4 or below, while
the DepEd Kindergarten program is intended for children who are at least 5
years old by October 31st of the present school year.
With K to 12, should schools prepare permanent records for
Kindergarten students?
Yes. While the assessment on readiness skills of students in Kindergarten is
not academically driven, a good measure of the childs ability to cope with
formal schooling is needed for future learning interventions.

Who is in charge of Kindergarten teacher compensation?


DepEd is the main agency that employs and pays Kindergarten teachers in
public schools. However, there are LGUs that help in the Kindergarten
program and provide honoraria for additional Kindergarten teachers in public
schools.
Which Mother Tongue will be used as the language of instruction in
multi-cultural areas?
The principle of MTB-MLE is to use the language that learners are most
comfortable and familiar with; therefore, the common language in the area
or lingua franca shall be used as the language of instruction
Will Mother Tongue Based Multi-Lingual Education (MTB-MLE)
include other languages in the future?
Languages other than the 19 current mother tongues (Bahasa Sug, Bikol,
Cebuano, Chabacano, Hiligaynon, Iloko, Kapampangan, Maguindanaoan,
Meranao, Pangasinense, Tagalog, Waray, Ybanag, Ivatan, Sambal, Akianon,
Kinaray-a, Yakan, and Surigaonon.)
What is Senior High School?
Senior High School (SHS) covers the last two years of the K to 12 program
and includes Grades 11 and 12. In SHS, students will go through a core
curriculum and subjects under a track of their choice.
Will SHS mean two more years of High School?
Yes. These two additional years will equip learners with skills that will better
prepare them for the future, whether it be:
Employment
Entrepreneurship
Skills Development (Further Tech-Voc training)
Higher Education (College)
How will students choose their Senior High School specializations?
Students will undergo assessments to determine their strengths and
interests. These will include an aptitude test, a career assessment exam, and
an occupational interest inventory for high schools. Career advocacy
activities will also be conducted to help guide students in choosing their
specialization or track.

How will student specializations/tracks be distributed across Senior


High Schools?
Specializations or tracks to be offered will be distributed according to the
resources available in the area, the needs and interests of most students,
and the opportunities and demands of the community.
Will SHS ensure employment for me?
SHS creates the following opportunities:
Standard requirements will be applied to make sure graduates know
enough to be hirable.
You will now be able to apply for TESDA Certificates of Competency
(COCs) and National Certificates (NCs) to provide you with better work
opportunities.
Partnerships with different companies will be offered for technical and
vocational courses.
You can now get work experience while studying; and companies can
even hire you after you graduate.
Entrepreneurship courses will now be included. Instead of being employed,
you can choose to start your own business after graduating, or choose to
further your education by going to college.
How will SHS affect my college education?

SHS, as part of the K to 12 Basic Curriculum, was developed in line with


the curriculum of the Commission of Higher Education (CHED) the
governing body for college and university education in the Philippines.
This ensures that by the time you graduate from Senior High School,
you will have the standard knowledge, skills, and competencies
needed to go to college.

Is SHS really necessary? Must I go to SHS?


Yes, according to the law. Beginning SY 2016-2017, you must go through
Grades 11 and 12 to graduate from High School.
If I choose not to go to SHS, what happens to me?
You will be a grade 10 completer, but not a high school graduate. Elementary
graduates are those who finish grade 6; high school graduates must have
finished grade 12.

What will I learn in SHS that the current high school curriculum
doesnt include?
Senior High School covers eight learning areas as part of its core curriculum,
and adds specific tracks (similar to college courses) based on four
disciplines:
Academic (which includes Business, Science & Engineering, Humanities
& Social Science, and a General Academic strand)
Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (with highly specialized subjects with
TESDA qualifications)
Sports
Arts & Design
SHS Students may pick a track based on how he or she will want to proceed
after high school graduation. You can learn more about the tracks and
strands (as well as their curriculum) on deped.gov.ph.
Where will Senior High School be implemented? Will my school offer
SHS?

Existing public and private schools, including colleges, universities and


technical institutions may offer Senior High School.
There may also be stand-alone Senior High Schools established by
DepEd or private organizations.

Can a private school offer Senior High School before SY 2016-2017?


Private schools may offer Grade 11 as early as SY 2015-2016 to interested
students. However, Senior High School before SY 2016-2017 is voluntary for
both private schools and students, and there will be no funding assistance
from the government to private Senior High School before SY 2016-2017.
Will SHS modelling schools that implemented the SHS program in SY
2012-13 be allowed to implement the SHS Program?
SHS modelling schools listed in DepEd Order No. 71, s. 2013 may implement
the SHS program, but they must go through the process of applying a
provisional SHS permit, and must meet the standards and requirements for
the SHS Program.
Which private institutions are allowed to offer Senior High School?

All schools and organizations must first apply for a permit from DepEd.
Different institutions may also partner with each other and apply for
SHS as a group.

Temporary permits will be issued by DepEd for those who meet the
requirements for the Senior High School Program.
There are 334 private schools with SHS permits beginning in SY 2014
or 2015. Last March 31, 2015, provisional permits have been issued to
1,122 private schools that will offer Senior High School in 2016.
If you are interested in applying for a Senior High School permit, please
visit: https://bit.ly/AppGuidelinesforSHS.

What other information should applicants remember in applying for


a SHS permit?

All applications must only be submitted via email


to kto12@deped.gov.ph.
Applications must contain the requirements detailed in DepEd Memo
No. 4, series of 2014, viewable at https://bit.ly/AppGuidelinesforSHS.
Only applications with complete documentary requirements will be
processed by the SHS-NTF on a first come-first served basis.
Submission of letters of intent only will not be processed.
The proposed SHS Curriculum consistent with the final SHS Curriculum
issued by DepEd must be submitted upon application.

Who receives, evaluates and approves the applications for


provisional SHS permits? Who issues the permits?

The SHS-National Task Force (SHS-NTF) will receive applications from


interested parties, establish the process and criteria in evaluating
selected applicants, and evaluate the SHS applications of non-DepEd
schools.
Regional Offices will be deputized to conduct on-site validation for all
applicants. The on-site validation will focus on the provision of SHS
requirements for the proposed track/strand, and will certify that a
school exhibits the necessary SHS requirements to implement the
program.
The DepEd Secretary approves applications for the SHS Program and
issues provisional permits to applicants upon the recommendation of
the Undersecretary for Programs and Projects.
The Regional Office releases the provisional permit to the applicant.

Will the additional two years of High School mean additional


expenses?
Not necessarily.
Senior High School completes basic education by making sure that
the high school graduate is equipped for work, entrepreneurship, or

higher education. This is a step up from the 10-year cycle where high
school graduates still need further education (and expenses) to be
ready for the world.
SHS will be offered free in public schools and there will be a voucher
program in place for public junior high school completers as well as
ESC beneficiaries of private high schools should they choose to take
SHS in private institutions.
This means that the burden of expenses for the additional two years
need not be completely shouldered by parents.

Where can I find out more about SHS?


You can find out more at www.deped.gov.ph/k-to-12. You can also ask your
school administration (public or private) to contact the DepEd division office
to help organize an orientation seminar.
What is the Voucher Program?

This program enables Grade 10 completers from public and private


Junior High Schools (JHS) to enroll in a (1) private high school, (2)
private university or college, (3) state or local university or college, or
(4) technical-vocational school, which will offer the Senior High School
program starting School Year 2016-2017.
Through the Voucher Program, students and their families are able to
exercise greater choice in deciding the Senior High School program
that is most relevant to their needs and career goals. A certain amount
will be subsidized by DepEd to private SHS to offset the cost of tuition.

Who will benefit from the Voucher Program? Can I apply?

All JHS completers from public junior high schools are qualified to
receive the full voucher values.
Private junior high school completers who are on Education Service
Contracting (ESC) grants will receive 80% of the full voucher value.
JHS completers from private schools and non-DepEd schools can also
apply for vouchers worth 80% of the full voucher value.
Students will be notified of their eligibility prior to completing Grade
10. No monetary value is given to the student directly instead the
subsidy is remitted to the Senior High School where he/she will enroll.

How much is the value of the voucher?


The actual amount of the vouchers will depend on the location of the SHS
where the student will enroll.

JHS completers who will enroll in a SHS located in the National Capital
Region (NCR) will receive a full voucher value of PhP 22,500.
JHS completers who will enroll in a SHS located in Non-NCR Highly
Urbanized Cities (HUCs) will receive a full voucher value of PhP 20,000.
These cities include Angeles, Bacolod, Baguio, Butuan, Cagayan de
Oro, Cebu City, Davao City, General Santos, Iligan, Iloilo City, Lapulapu, Lucena, Mandaue, Olongapo, Puerto Princesa, Tacloban, and
Zamboanga City.
JHS completers who will enroll in a SHS located in other cities and
municipalities will have a full voucher value of PhP 17,500.

The voucher must be used in the school year immediately following the year
of JHS completion. A voucher recipient may only be able to avail of the
voucher subsidy for two (2) successive years.
Non-DepEd schools may charge tuitions that are higher than the voucher
subsidy amounts. Students and parents are expected to cover the difference
between the tuition fee charged by the school and the voucher subsidy from
government.
What are the advantages of the Voucher Program?

For Students
The voucher program can provide high-quality education for all types
of students. Even those who normally do not have the financial means
will be able to choose from different schools. They will not be limited to
the schools that are provided by the DepEd.
For Private Schools
Private schools with SHS will be able to tap into an expanded market
students from public junior high schools

But are we really sure that it will work in the Philippine education
system?
In SY 2012-2013, DepEd tested the SHS program to over 10,000 students in
a total of 56 schools around the Philippines. The results of this modelling
program, including best practices and learning experiences of students, have
influenced the creation of the current SHS curriculum.
How can I help improve basic education?

Private partners can donate through the Adopt-A-School program. A


150% tax incentive will be provided for every contribution.
Help spread awareness and information on the K to 12 Program.

How will SHS Affect me? Will I lose my Job?

No high school teachers will be displaced


The Department of Education (DepEd) is in constant coordination with
CHED and DOLE on the actual number of affected faculty from private
higher education institutions (HEIs). The worst-case scenario is that
39,000 HEI faculty will lose their jobs over 5 years. This will only
happen if none of the HEIs will put up their own Senior High Schools,
which is since we are currently processing over 1,000 SHS applications
from private institutions.
DepEd is also hiring more than 30,000 new teachers in 2016 alone. The
Department will prioritize affected faculty who will apply as teachers or
administrators in our SHS.

I am a graduate of a science/math/engineering/course. Can I apply


as an SHS teacher?

If you are willing to teach on a part-time basis, you will not be required
to take and pass the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).
If you want a permanent position, you will need to take and pass the
LET within five years after your date of hiring to remain employed fulltime.

I am a hired TVI course graduate/HEI faculty/practitioner. Can I apply


as an SHS teacher?

Graduates of technical-vocational courses must have the necessary


certification issued by TESDA and undergo training to be administered
by DepEd or HEIs.
Faculty of colleges and universities must be full-time professors and be
holders of a relevant Bachelors degree.
DepEd and private schools may also hire practitioners with expertise in
the specialized learning areas offered by the K to 12 Program as parttime teachers.

*Faculty of TVIs and HEIs will be given priority in hiring for the transition
period from September 2013 until SY 2021-2022.
I am a practitioner. Can I apply as an SHS teacher?

You may teach as part-time teacher in Senior High School under the
track subjects. We encourage you to consider this to share your
valuable knowledge and experience to our SHS learners.

How will K to 12 affect the college curriculum?

The College General Education curriculum will have fewer units.


Subjects that have been taken up in Basic Education will be removed
from the College General Education curriculum.
Details of the new GE Curriculum may be found in CHED Memorandum
Order No. 20, series of 2013.
