Posted last July 29, 2020, the Department of Education released an official statement on their official website regarding the Learner Enrollment and Survey Tagging Facility (LESF).
[See the official statement from DepEd: https://www.deped.gov.ph/2020/07/30/official-statement-on-lesf/ ]
LESF was described as the main enrollment tool used for the remote and dropbox enrollment for SY 2020-2021. The tool is an expanded version of the regular enrolment form which captures not only the basic profile of learners but also relevant survey questions for parents designed to profile the household in terms of their readiness for distance education.
Such information was embedded on the form:
i) employment status of parents or guardians
ii) manner of going to school of learner
iii) number of learners in every household
iv) presence of household members that can provide
instructional support in distance learning
v) availability of gadgets and devices
vi) access to internet
vii) preferred learning modality
viii) challenges that may affect learning in distance mode
ix) number of private school learners who enrolled in public schools.
The data which will be gathered privately will be made productive in designing respective learning continuity plan with regards to the budget requirements for the needed learning modalities and resources to be implemented on every region and school division.
