PASIG CITY – The Department of Education (DepEd) today reminded the public that the deadline for the online application of the Senior High School Voucher Program (SHS VP) for incoming students of the school year 2017-2018 will only be until tomorrow, February 10.
Pursuant to DepEd Order No. 66, series of 2016, Education Secretary Leonor Briones mandated that the last day of online submissions for the SHS voucher program would be the second Friday of February.
The SHS voucher program is the financial assistance provided by the government to give discount in school fees for Grade 10 pupils who will pursue their education in private schools or technical-vocational institutions that are accredited to offer the SHS program.
As part of the initiatives to widen access to the benefits of the SHS voucher program, all submitted applications will be processed by the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) and will be forwarded to the DepEd for validation and approval.
Applications are free of charge and all Grade 10 completers are eligible for the program. Results will be released and posted on the DepEd website on March 31. ###
