OVER one thousand student transferees from Marawi City were enrolled in several public schools in Region 12 (South Cotabato, Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos) and the number is expected to increase in the coming weeks. Department of Education (DepEd) Region 12 director, Arturo Bayocot, said transferees were enrolled in various public elementary and high schools in General Santos City, Cotabato City, Sultan Kudarat and Koronadal City. “Our schools will accept displaced students until June 30,” Bayocot said in a radio interview. The parents and guardians have been advised to process their children’s enrollment not later than the end of this. Education Secretary Leonora Briones has said that about 22,000 students in Marawi are affected by the siege. Region 12 recorded about 1.096 million enrollees in public elementary and high schools, including transferees during the first week of classes.
