Gamutin added that on their record, there are 15 schools with recognition for elementary and 12 for junior high school.
In the renewal process, the superintendent said that among the requirements is the school’s compliance to K to 12 curriculum implementation policies and guidelines.
Meanwhile, Jenelito Atillo, information officer of Deped Region XI, bared during the One Davao on COVID-19 virtual presser that around 800 private schools in the region are on permit basis, meaning they are renewing their permits yearly.

The enrollment period for the said school year will be on June 1-30, 2020, Atillo said. (PIA XI, Michael Uy)
