Educational Service Contracting (ESC)

Educational Service Contracting (ESC) is a partnership program by the Department of Education (DepEd) to decongest overcrowded public junior high schools. In ESC, the excess capacities of certified private junior high schools are “contracted” through slot allocations for students who would otherwise have gone to public schools. The slots come with subsidies called ESC grants, and program beneficiaries are called ESC grantees or, for the purposes of these guidelines, simply grantees.

The grant is subject to termination if a grantee does any of the following conditions:
