By The Star Staff
So far, 175,552 students have completed the online enrollment process for the 2022-2023 school year, Education Secretary Eliezer Ramos Parés announced Wednesday.
The deadline to complete the procedure is next Tuesday, March 15.
“Completing the application on time gives us the opportunity to learn about the need for resources for proper planning ahead of the start of the new school year,” Ramos Parés said in a written statement. “Our goal is to have human resources, according to the needs of each school community. That is why it is important that anyone who needs help to complete the process communicates with the school or the regional office in their region.”
The Education secretary added that those interested in enrolling in an occupational, specialized or Montessori school, in addition to applying online, should contact the desired campus, since each program has specific requirements.
Also, more than one occupational program can be selected as an option for the student, if they wish, Ramos Parés said. Parents or guardians must access the online registration portal during the period of April 7-8 to receive confirmation of registration.
Parents or guardians who need face-to-face assistance may visit the school campuses, or the educational regions at the regional offices of Arecibo, Bayamón, Caguas, Humacao, Mayagüez, Ponce or San Juan.
