[UPDATE] The Department of Education (DepEd) has just released DepEd Order No. 31 s.2012 or "Policy Guidelines on the Implementation of Grades 1 to 10 of the K to 12 Basic Education Curriculum (BEC) effective School Year 2012-2013" and the DepEd Order No. 32 s.2012 or "Implementing Rules and Regulations of Republic Act 10157 Otherwise Known as "The Kindergarten Education Act."

DO 31 states that "effective School Year 2012-2013, the K to 12 Basic Education Curriculum (BEC) shall be implemented starting with the roll-out of Grades 1 and 7 in all public elementary and secondary schools. Private schools are enjoined to do the same. They may further enhance the curriculum to suit the school vision/mission."

Enclosure 1 of the DO stipulates the general guidelines for the implementation of Grades 1 to 10 Curriculum:

a. Design of the Curriculum;
b. Desired Outcomes of Grades 1 to 10 Program;
c. Nomenclature/Learning Area and its Description;
d. Medium of Instruction;
e. Time Allotment;
f. Sample Class Program;
g. Learning Resources;
h. Assessment and Rating of Learning Outcomes; and
i. Culminating Activities/Performances.

Enclosure 2, on the other hand, gives a Sample Report Card for Grades 1 to 6 and Grades 7 to 10.

DepEd challenges the schools to implement the guidelines in creative and innovative ways, "for the curriculum can be localized without compromising the philosophy of total learner development."

DO 32, on the other hand, lays down the implementing rules and regulations of the Kindergarten Education Act, which was signed into law on 20 January 2012. Under RA 10157, kindergarten education is now mandatory and compulsory for entrance to Grade 1 starting School Year 2012-2013.
