Updated DepEd Guidelines on Swapping of Station

Field Officials are hereby informed of the following DepEd guidelines on swapping of station or personnel-initiated transfer to another station/school assignment, to wit:

DepEd Guidelines on Swapping of Station, or Personnel-Initiated Transfer to Another Station

  • The personnel concerned should have rendered at least three (3) years of service in the present station (DepEd Order No. 7, s. 2015), except for meritorious and humanitarian reasons.
  • Personnel should be armed with a Letter of Intent, or Swapping Agreement, whichever is appropriate, noted and endorsed by the principal/school head of his/her present station, and duly approved by the Schools Division Superintendent.
  • Teacher transferee should seek clearance from all accountabilities from the school of origin before transfer may be affected. Principals and school heads are reminded that they may not refuse to sign the teacher transferee’s clearance for reasons other than the failure of the latter to clear himself from all accountabilities arising from his/her duty. Liabilities to individuals or juridical entities resulting from the personal transaction may be not a ground for withholding clearance.
  • Principal or school head of the receiving school shall require the teacher transferee to present his/her Assignment Order, along with the documents as mentioned above.

    Dito po,sa Magnaga, Elementary, School, Pantukan Davao de Oro ..ang Principal ayaw po mag pa re shuffle kahit tapos na ang 5 years term DepEd policy..Kahit hindi na gusto ang mga teachers sa kanya…Gustong mag pa extend ng 4 years lumapit sa mga Politiko…Hindi gusto ma punta sa maliit na school..
