Learners’ Information System

The Learner Reference Number (LRN) is a unique and permanent 12-digit number assigned to a person who enters the Philippines basic education program. It is intended to reference a “Registry of Learners” which serves as a centralized and authoritative database of learners’ basic information.

It offers access to learner profiles in the registry and even performance data as he or she completes the program, whether it be in the formal or non-formal mode of learning. It is issued to a learner when he or she registers in the basic education program either at the start of the program (i.e., kindergarten level) or when the learner transfers from a school and has not yet been issued an LRN.It is a system for maintaining the registry of learners aimed at meeting the following objectives

a. Provide a standardized registration system for learners
b. Track learner progress/performance
c. Provide learner information for better program planning and supervision of schools and learning centers
