The Department of Education (DepEd) is aiming to roll out the updated Kinder to Grade 10 (K-10) curriculum by school year (SY) 2024-2025, DepEd spokesperson Michael Poa said in a report by Philippine News Agency.

In an interview, Poa said the target rollout date is consistent with DepEd’s commitment to get and consider all public comments in order to fine-tune the K-10 curriculum before its implementation.

“Of course, ang gusto nating makuha talaga, ay lahat ng comments ng public, ma-consider natin para ma-tweak pa natin further ‘yung K-10 curriculum (what we really like to happen is to get are all the comments so we can consider and further tweak the K-10 curriculum),” he said, noting that the posted curriculum guide is just a draft.


He also noted that in reference to the guide, the mother tongue shall still be used as a “medium of instruction.”

“It’s still a working draft, that’s why we want to get the comments. According to our curriculum guide, and we would like to clarify this, we did not remove the mother tongue as a medium of instruction. What we removed was mother tongue as a subject,” Poa said.

Currently, the DepEd’s curriculum strand is still in the process of collating these comments to help finalize the revised curriculum.

The DepEd also assured that once finished, the draft of the updated curriculum guide for Grades 11 and 12 or Senior High School (SHS) shall also be released for transparency.


“Consultation muna po tayo again, and then after that, magkakaroon muna tayo ng review proper and then saka na ‘yung revision (Again, we are still in the consultation [process], and then after that, we will first have the review proper, then the revision),” Poa said.

Last November, the DepEd started the curriculum review for SHS to adhere to the administration’s goal to ensure employable graduates.

The DepEd, earlier, vowed to push for initiatives that will help improve the skills and competence of basic education graduates amid job mismatch challenges.
