Hi ma'am/Sir

I would like to request a copy of my form 137 in my elementary. I studied at Francisco Austria memorial Elementary School. I went there but they lost my record. May I request it at DEPEd?

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).
