A simplified set of school forms was introduced and adopted through DepEd Order No. (DO) 4, s. 2014 entitled Adoption of the Modified School Forms (SFs)for Public Elementary and Secondary Schools Effective End of School Year 2013-2014. Currently, SFs 1, 2, 4, 5and6 are used to record data on learners in Kinder (except SF5), and Grades 1 to 10, while SF3 captures information related to textbook distribution and SF 7 collects information about each school personnel’s current official duty or teaching assignments. This set of modified school forms provides significant information that are valuable in making evidence-based assessment, planning, resource allocation, performance monitoring, and evaluation.
The inclusive implementation of the K to 12 Basic Education Program, particularly of Senior High School (SHS), and the intensified delivery of the Alternative Learning System (ALS), necessitated the development of updated school and ALS forms respectively. There is also the need to update the data elements being collected from the Kindergarten program and to standardize the learners’ health and nutrition report and permanent academic achievement record. These new, standardized forms shall complement DO 4, s. 2014. This set of school and ALS forms are the result of a series of consultations and discussions with the School Forms Review Team (SFRT) composed of teachers, principals, and key personnel from the schools division, regional, and central offices.
II. SCOPE OF THE POLICY
This policy covers the adoption of new forms for Kindergarten, SHS, and ALS, and the standardization of the learners’ health and nutrition, and permanent records.
The use of these forms in all public schools is mandatory. No other forms will be used as official documents in public schools nationwide unless approved by the Office of the Undersecretary for Planning and Field Operations. Private schools, State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) and Local Universities and Colleges (LUCs), and other Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) offering the basic education curriculum are enjoined to adopt the new forms.
III. POLICY STATEMENT
While this policy shall lessen the time and effort of teachers and school heads consumed for administrative matters to allow them to focus on their core business, which is the delivery of the curriculum, the paramount consideration of this policy is to ensure that our school and ALS personnel gather no more than those data that are important and relevant to our school and ALS statistics. The simplicity in data gathering and reporting with this new set of forms does not compromise the accuracy of the information being collected.
IV. NEW SCHOOL FORMS GUIDELINES AND PROCEDURES
Beginning SY 2017-2018, the school forms in Enclosure No. 2 shall be used nationwide. The ALS forms, also in Enclosure No. 2, shall be used by mobile teachers and district ALS Coordinators beginning this Calendar Year (CY) 2017. These new school and ALS forms in spreadsheet format are available for download from the Deped Official Website (www.deped.gov.ph) under the Resources Tab, and from the Learner Information System (lis.deped.gov.ph) Support Page. Below is the summary of new school and ALS forms:

The Permanent Record commonly known as Form 137 was renamed to Learner’s Permanent Academic Record or SF10. To simplify the format and content, SF10 will only bear the DepEd official logo and seal.
