The division was officially created by Commonwealth Act No. 51 (also known as “The Charter of the City of Davao”), which created the City of Davao. Article V Section 38 of Commonwealth Act No. 51 specifies the creation of the city’s Bureau of Education, the designation and duties of the Bureau’s officials and the local school board, and the Schools Division Superintendent’s and the local school board’s reportorial duties to the City Mayor. Assemblyman Romualdo Quimpo sought the passage of the Act, which was eventually signed into law by President Manuel L. Quezon on 16 March 1937.
