Senior High School Voucher Program (SHS VP)

Program Description

Senior High School Voucher Program (SHS VP) is a program of financial assistance wherein subsidies in the form of vouchers are provided to qualified SHS learners in VP-participating SHSs.

Role of PEAC

The Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) shall coordinate with DepEd and other stakeholders to ensure that applications are processed, and results are promptly released. PEAC is represented nationally by its National Secretariat (PEAC NS).

Specifically, the PEAC NS has the following responsibilities:

  • Provide the infrastructure, systems, coordination and controls required for the implementation of the SHS VP;
  • Provide in-service training of teachers in VP-participating SHSs;
  • Conduct orientation conferences on SHS VP policies, guidelines, procedures, and other related matters for Regional Program Committees, the DepEd SDOs concerns, VP-participating SHSs, and other concerned entities and individuals;
  • Process billing statements and monitoring of VP ­participating SHSs; and
  • Report violations of program policies and guidelines, as well as other concerns affecting the program’s implementation in accordance with the procedures under relevant issuances of DepEd or, in the absence thereof, to endorse a recommended action to DepEd for final decision

Moreover, its field counterpart, the PEAC Regional Secretariats (RS) conducts the field audits, training, and mentoring sessions as may be needed by their regions.

The Regional Program Committees (RPComs) as established through DO 18, s. 2016, shall oversee the compliance of VP­participating SHSs in their regions with the policies and guidelines of the GASTPE programs, including the SHS VP. It is responsible in the resolution of the problems that may occur and/or recommend measures to improve program implementation. It is composed of the representatives from DepEd and PEAC RS with the Regional Director as the Chairperson and the PEAC Regional Director as Co­chairperson.

Schools shall provide learners and parents with information, guidance, and assistance on the SHS VP and the application process. They shall process documents requested by the learners, conduct orientations on SHS VP, and provide resources to facilitate voucher applications, and may provide career guidance programs. VP­participating SHS shall uphold student choice in the SHS VP and shall not impose their preferences on learners or otherwise engage in practices that undermine student choice. They must promptly encode complete and accurate information required in the BEIS, LIS, and VMS. Prepare billing statement packages and must comply with these program guidelines.
