2. As prescribed in DO 007, s. 2019, 203 days shall be the total mumber of school days that shall be reflected in School Form 9 (SF9), Learner's Progress Report card.

3. "To determine the Number of Days Present, the actual number of days the learber was present shall be reflected. However, on days that classes were suspended, there is a need to qualify by indicating the number of days were suspended and alternative delivery mode (ADM) was undertaken, e.g. 15 days suspendeD with ADM option."

4. "The number of days the learner was absent within the month prior to the class suspensions/ Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) period shall be reflected."

5. "For purposes of compliance with the required 80 percent attendance of a learner, the total actual absences prior to class suspensions will be the basic consideration. This means that a learner whose Percentage of Attendance (No. of Days Absent/203 x 100 = Percentage of Absence) is lower than 20 percent shall be deemed to have met the attendance requirement for the school year."
