Dear Mark Anthony Valbuena,


Thank you for your request dated Aug 10, 2022 12:25:20 AM under Executive Order No. 2 (s. 2016) on Freedom of Information in the Executive Branch.

Your Request

You asked for Form 137 from 1996-1997.

Response to Request

Please be informed that the Department of Education-Central Office (DepEd-CO) 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 need to bring the certification or school records to the Regional Office for authentication (DepEd Order No. 48, s. 2017 dated August 25, 2017).

For further assistance, you may directly coordinate with the Schools Division Office (SDO) of Parañaque City through the following:

Do I need to go in my previous school and I can request my form 137? And they can give me a copy without any request coming from other school or deped?
