DAVAO CITY, Feb. 10 – The Local Civil Registrar (LCR) here will add 10 more schools as venues for free registration of civil documents to achieve its 100-percent registration rate in Davao City.

Lawyer Leo Anthony Braceros, chief of the Local Civil Registrar (LCR) here, said they have already informed the Department of Education (DepEd) in the Davao Region of their plan to amend their memorandum of agreement (MOA) on the additional off-site registration venues.

He said the city's project dubbed "Sa Paaralan Ko, Pwede Ng Magparehistro" is part of the celebration of the Civil Registration Month this February.

Earlier, Braceros said two MOAs were entered into between the City Government and DepEd-Davao, where 20 schools have been identified as civil registration venues for birth, marriage and death.

He said majority of these schools are in the second and third districts of the city where most of the city's remote barangays are located.

The off-site civil registration project of the city started last year and will continue until the city can achieve the 100 percent registration rate. However, the list of additional schools is yet to be finalized by the LCR, he said. (PNA) LAP/Anthony S. Allada/ldp
