During the discussion, different issues and concerns emerged on the implementation of Senior High School (SHS) Voucher System in their respective schools. One frequently raised issue was on the use of online school applications and services in relation to voucher application. In addition, other technical issues such as incomplete data base, off-line systems and multiple registration of voucher applicants were also highlighted. The participants also painted a clear picture of how their respective local government agencies provide additional resources and support in the implementation of DepEd’s SHS program.                                                                                                                                                     Read more about this.
