Deped Siargao

Siargao Division Profile

Deped SiargaoThe DepEd Division of Siargao is committed to produce healthy, literate, self-determined citizens who are God-loving, culturally sensitive, environment conscious, equip with quality and competitive basic education, capable of contributing to the sustainable development of the islands.

The Division lays the foundation for life-long learning, delivers service for the common good, promotes desirable values and attitudes sensitive to the culture and history of the islands, reserves its environment being a protected area and encourages linkages between and among parents, local government units and the community as effective partners in the implementation of DepEd’s Programs and Projects.

It has been in existence for the past forty-four years (44). It was created under Republic Act No. 4696, sponsored by then Congressman Constantino C. Navarro, Sr. approved on June 18, 1966. It started to operate on August 25, 1967. Presently, twelve (12) districts composed the Division namely: Burgos, Dapa East, Dapa West, Gen. Luna, Numancia East, Numancia West, Pilar, San Benito, San Isidro, Sapao, Socorro East and Socorro West. There are twenty three (23) Public Secondary Schools, one CHED Supervised and one Private Secondary School.

The organization started when Superintendent Alfonso Cureg of Surigao del Norte issued a division memorandum for the creation of the Division of Siargao on August 18, 1967.  The memorandum mentioned the coverage of the new division and the composition of the skeletal force (5 clerks, 1 administrative officer, 1 supply officer, 2 janitors) where Mr. Jesus M. Catre, General Education Supervisor 1, was designated  as the Division Superintendent by the Director of the Public Schools.

Congressman Constantino C. Navarro Sr. sponsored the Republic Act No. 4696 creating Siargao Division as separate division from Surigao del Norte and was approved by the Congress on June 18, 1966.  The Division of Siargao began to function independently on August 25, 1967. DepED Siargao has been in existence for the past forty seven (47) years.  Presently, there are twelve (12) districts that composed the division namely: Burgos, Dapa East, Dapa West, General Luna, Numancia East, Numancia West, Pilar, San Benito, San Isidro, Sapao, Socorro East and Socorro West. There are twenty five (25) Public Secondary, one (1) Supervised CHED and two (2) Private

Siargao Division is composed of  two major islands, Siargao Island and Bucas Grande where the Municipality of Socorro is located. Siargao is located in the “ring of fire”, the Pacific Ocean reachable either by Roll-on, Roll-off (RORO), a cargo boat and a passenger boat or either a smaller pump boats like the Britphil and Dapa Express. At the most it takes more or less four hours to reach the island landing at the pier of the Municipality of Dapa.
