As the School Year 2020-2021 has been pushed back further into a later date, students (and parents) are encouraged by the Department of Education (DepEd) to access DepEd Commons.

In partnership with Globe and Smart Telecommunications, DepEd announced in April the free access of the online educational platform to Filipino students nationwide.

“Education must continue even in times of crisis, whether it may be a calamity, disaster, emergency, quarantine, or even war,” Education Secretary Leonor Briones said.
