Updating LIS seemed like a meteor striking Christmas rectitude in the southeast, Published online on Dec 18, 2012 @ 6 P.M.
The Learner Information System (LIS) is a system for maintaining the registry of learners aimed at meeting the following objectives: To provide a standardized registration system for learners; to track learner progress/performance; to provide learner information for better program planning and supervision of schools and learning centers and to enhance management of learner’s records.
This can be done using the Learner Reference Number (LRN). It is a unique and permanent 12-digit number assigned to a person who enters the Philippines basic education program. LRN is intended to reference a ‘Registry of Learners which serves as a centralized and authoritative database of learners’ basic information. It offers access to learner's profiles in the registry and even performance data as he or she completes the program, whether it be in the formal or non-formal mode of learning. It is issued to a learner when he or she registers in the basic education program either at the start of the program (i.e., Kindergarten level) or when the learner transfers from school….
Legal bases of this program are DepEd Order No. 67, s. 2011: A Submission of Masterlist of Learners enrolled in public elementary and secondary schools as well as ALS programs for CY/SY 2011-2012 and DepEd Order No. 22, s. 2012: An Adoption of the Unique Learners Reference Number which is referring to Centralized Generation of LRNs, Dissemination of Masterlist of Learners with corresponding LRNs to schools and CLCs, Incorporation of LRNs in all records which refer to the learner (e.g. Permanent Record, Report Card, ALS Certificate, diploma, NAT Results, etc.)
Who are to be issued with LRN? These are the public school learners: new entrants, previous SY enrollees with no LRN, Balik-Aral/Balik-Paaralan and transferees from private schools.
What a very nice program of the government it is? Legally all schools must have to implement LIS Program of the Department of Education.
There was an orientation on the Learners Information System (LIS) at DepEd Cebu Province-Session Hall last December 12, 2012 which was participated by Elementary and Secondary School Heads and ICT Municipal Coordinators. And it was mentioned that the deadline for the submission of online-edited and updated LIS in every school in Cebu province is on December 21, 2012. It’s a burden on the part of ICT Coordinators as well as class advisers of the school. The deadline seemed like a meteor striking Christmas rectitude in schools, southeast of Cebu Province.
Considering that there was a Two-day Division Workshop on the Use of NCBTS-TSNA Database System last December 13-14, 2012 held at the Dalaguete NHS, Dalaguete, Cebu which was participated by ICT Coordinators of the schools and school heads.
Setting information to all advisers and MAPEH teachers through a school memo; the principal called a meeting to all teachers discussing LIS, LRN, NCBTS-TSNA, Nutritional Status, School IDs, and Christmas activities last December 17 which was Monday.
And sad to say that in a very hectic chance of ICT Coordinators to accesshttp://lis.deped.gov.ph/ to edit and update online with the Learners Information System (LIS), the said website couldn’t be fully accessed on December 18, 2012. How could an ICT Coordinator accomplish and meet such deadline? Could you make it?
The school Christmas activities: on December 19, Teachers’ Party; December 20, Homeroom Party; and December 21, Christmas-Religious and Educational Tour in Cebu City. If the school has 1,378 learners with database forms or templates such Search Learner, Enroll Previous SY Learners, 4 Ps/CCT Recipients, Edit/Remove Enrollees, Class Adviser, Body Mass and Check Data to be edited and updated in two days, could an ICT Coordinator successfully accomplish the Learners Information System on December 21? For me, it’s hard to accomplish LIS on its deadline. I think this article could precisely explain if DepEd Legal Office might ask our school to render a Letter of Explanation due to failure of LIS submission to the Central Office.
