This comes after Education Secretary Leonor Briones announced Friday that the opening for the next school year has been moved to October 5 from August 24,

Private and non-DepEd schools that are scheduled to begin classes on August 24 or any date earlier than October 5 may also continue doing so provided that they follow the same requirements.

These schools must submit the relevant documents to the Regional Director as required by DepEd Order 7 (School Calendar and Activities for Schol Year 2020-2021), as well as DepEd Order 13 and 17 on readiness assessment.
