DepEd allows field trips again issues new Guidelines


DepEd allows field trips again issues new Guidelines

The Department of Education (DepEd) has repealed its moratorium on school field trips and other off-campus activities for both public and private schools, following the Tanay road crash that killed 15 people.

DepEd Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones signed DepEd Order Number 66, series of 2017, which lists down 3 guidelines that schools should follow in holding co-curricular and extracurricular off-campus activities.

The following are the guidelines which all co-curricular and extra-curricular activities must adhere to:

  1. Ensure relevance and alignment with the educational competencies of the K to 12 Curriculum and leadership development of learners;
  2. Uphold child protection principles and that no learner shall be disadvantaged in any form; and
  3. Observe the safety and security protocols for all participants before, during and after the activity.

DepEd had prohibited school field trips starting February 2017 after a bus carrying 50 students from Bestlink College of the Philippines crashed into an electric post at Sitio Bayucan in Barangay Sampaloc, Tanay.

The Department Order effectively repealed DepEd Memorandum No. 47 series of 2017, which took effect following a bus crash in Rizal on February that killed 15 — 13 students and one teacher who were on a field trip, along with the driver.

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) had also earlier issued stricter guidelines for educational field trips, which included mandatory insurance for students, scrutinizing the vehicles to be used, and making the activities voluntary.

CHED lifted the moratorium in August 2017.
