According to DepEd secretary Leonor Briones Briones, it was agreed upon during the consultations made that the school year will begin on Aug. 24 and will end on April 30, 2021. “Yes.

Briones also ordered teachers to render service to DepEd, whether physically or virtually, from June 1 to June 30, for them to undergo capacity building for new lessons, including the DepEd Commons.
