Fast track land titling for public schools, orders Paje
Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje instructed the Land Management Bureau (LMB) to fast track the titling of lands occupied by public schools across the country.
The order came after the DENR has issued the guidelines through Administrative Order No. 2015-01 signed by Paje on March 5 which is designed to speed up the processing and issuance of special patents. Initially, special patents for around 2,200 school sites will be issued within the year.
‚ÄúProviding our public schools with a solid legal basis for land ownership is central to government‚Äôs effort to improve our public education system,‚ÄĚ Paje said.
