Alternative Learning System
The Alternative Learning System (ALS) is a ladderized, modular non-formal education program in the Philippines for dropouts in elementary and secondary schools, out-of-school youths, non-readers, working Filipinos and even senior citizens. It is part of the education system of the Philippines but an alternative to the reqular classroom studies where Filipino students are required to attend daily. The alternative system only requires students to choose schedules according to their choice and availability.
The program has two different schematics for conducting instruction; school-based and communitybased (Non-formal). On the school-based program, instructions are conducted in school campuses while in the community-based program, formal instruction are conducted in community halls or on private places. The ALS program follows uniform lesson modules for all academic subjects covering the sciences, mathematics, English, Filipino, social studies, current events among others. Delivery of instructions is provided by government-paid instructors or by private non-government organization.
The three primary programs are carried out under the ALS community-based/Non-formal Education, namely: Basic Literacy Program (BLP), Accreditation and Equivalency (A & E) Program and Informal Education (InFEd).
To date, Santa Rosa City has one Mobile Teacher and three District ALS Coordinators working in the Alternative Leaning System.

Table 5-82: Madrasah Education Program Enrollment, By Sex, Santa Rosa City, SY 2014-2015
Issues and Concerns Raised
- Based on the Class Schedule given by ALIVE Teachers, some of their pupils are too tired to attend classes because almost all of them attend regular classes.
- Every time monitoring is done, rarely do we have perfect attendance.
- According to the teachers, since the implementation of Madrasah Education, they were given rooms being used by other grades. Thus, they cannot convert or structure this room with Muslim Instructional Materials because they are sharing it with others.
- According to them it would be much better if they be provided a room of their own so that they can decorate it with Muslim materials, in short, they are requesting for a Madrasah Room.
- They would like new materials such as textbooks for Arabic Language and Islamic Values in all levels.
- They are also requesting for the salaries from the Central Office to be given to the Division on time.
