Graduation Fee in Public Schools: NOT A REQUIREMENT

Share this post

Graduation Fee(s) in public schools is Not a Requirement. Parents and guardians should be keen in understanding that there is a school budget for that.

And wtih the release of DepEd Order 02 s. 2019 version 2, parents clamoured that the announcement was too late. Declaring JHS (Grade 10) Completion merely as a moving-up ceremony and not a graduation rites. Further, DepEd Memo 25 s. 2019 clarified that only grades 6 and 10 should hold graduation rites.

It was discovered that many parents and stakeholders were required to pay graduation fee(s) that included Grade 10 even in public schools.

In fact, under the Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE) of public schools, an allocated budget is due for graduation ceremonies. Every graduating student is allocated with Php 250.00.

Hence, there is no need to require parents and guardians to pay for any graduation fee. All public schools must provide a Transparency Board on MOOE in accordance with RA9485 (Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007). In other words, the allocated Php 250.00 per student is for graduation rites expenses only.

For more information on the MOOE Allocated for each public school, please click here.

We would also like everyone to report any violation of this to the Schools Division Offices. Reports can also be submitted through the 8888-Hotline. Please provide necessary evidences such as receipts before filing a report.
