Those learners who have shown exemplary performance in specific areas will be given recognition with the Policy Guidelines on Awards and Recognition for the K to 12 Basic Program (DepEd Order No. 8 s.2015). Equal opportunity for every learner is the main goal of this policy.
The standard set also aims to excel and focus more on their own performance rather than competing with one another. The individual differences and uniqueness of every child will be more identified, strengthened, and publicly acknowledged.
In each class or section Classroom Awards will be given per quarter, semester, or at the end of the school year.
If the child met the given criteria that was deliberated by the Awards Committee, then the qualified learner for every grade level will be given award/s.
Those learners who won or brought honor to the school in any competition at the district, division, regional, national, or international levels will be given special recognition.
Please see the attached DepEd Order No 36. S.2016 POLICY GUIDELINES ON AWARDS AND RECOGNITION FOR THE K TO 12 BASIC EDUCATION PROGRAM for more details.
