Dear Edlin Jorah Yamazaki,


Thank you for your request dated Jun 10, 2021 08:39:04 PM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your Request

You asked for Form 137 and School's Medium of Instructions.

Response to Request

This is to inform you that the Department of Education (DepEd) Central Office does not keep learners’ school records. The original school records are issued once only, hence, you are advised to get certification from the school where you graduated and bring it to the Division Office for a certified copy. If you need this for your job application abroad, you will bring the certification or school records to the Regional Office for authentication (DepEd Order No. 48, s. 2017 dated August 25, 2017).

Should you have further clarifications, you may directly seek the assistance of the Schools Division Office (SDO) Bulacan through the following:

Address: DepEd Building, Capitol Compound, Brgy. Guinhawa, City of Malolos, Bulacan
