BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE

Last 27 March 2015, the Department of Education (DepEd) issued DepEd Order (DO) No. 7, s. 2015 on the Hiring Guidelines for Teacher I Positions Effective School Year (SY) 2015-2016. As there are schools divisions that do not have an adequate number of qualified applicants to fill their teaching positions after having implemented the evaluation and selection process set forth in the aforementioned Order, there is a need for the issuance of additional guidelines on the hiring of teachers to ensure that our public elementary and secondary schools have sufficient, quality teachers.

To augment the need for qualified applicants in schools divisions with great teacher requirements, these hiring guidelines are hereby promulgated for the remaining Teacher I positions left unfilled after having implemented DO 7, s. 2015 effective SY 2015-2016.

COVERAGE

These Guidelines shall be used only in the event that the Schools Division Office (SDO) still has available Teacher I positions left after having implemented DO 7, s. 2015. Thus, all applicants who have passed the evaluation process set forth in DO 7, s. 2015 (i.e. those who have achieved 70 points and above) shall have been appointed and assigned to their respective stations before these Guidelines are used.

Applicants who have previously undergone the SY 2015-2016 evaluation process (per DO 7, s. 2015) but were not included in the initial Registry of Qualified Applicants (RQA) shall be covered by these guidelines. These applicants shall no longer undergo the entire evaluation process again; only a recalibration or updating of points in accordance with the modified points system set in these Guidelines shall be done.

The remaining positions shall also be open to new applicants. These applicants shall undergo the evaluation and selection process set forth in this Order.

DEFINITION OF TERMS

  • Applicant refers to a person who holds a valid certificate of registration/professional license as a teacher from the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) seeking to be appointed to a Teacher I Position.
  • Bona fide resident refers to an applicant who has been residing for at least six (6) months at the barangay, municipality, city or province in which the school being applied to for a teaching position is located, as evidenced by the Personal Data Sheet (CSC Form 212, Revised 2005) and a Voter’s Identification Card or any proof of residency deemed acceptable by the School Screening Committee. An applicant who has taught as an LGU-funded teacher, Kindergarten Volunteer Teacher (KVT) or substitute teacher for at least one (1) school year in the barangay, municipality, city or province where the school being applied to for a teaching position is located shall also be considered as a bona fide resident, to be validated by a certificate of employment.
  • Locality refers to the barangay, municipality, city or province where the school being applied for is located.
    Qualified applicant refers to an applicant who has been screened and who, therefore, meets the evaluation and selection criteria used by the Schools Division as provided for in the enclosed guidelines.

BASIC RULES ON HIRING AND DEPLOYMENT OF TEACHER POSITIONS

Public school teachers requesting for transfer to another station are not considered new applicants and are therefore not subject to these hiring guidelines. DepEd Order No. 22, s. 2013, otherwise known as the “Revised Guidelines on the Transfer of Teachers from One Station to Another,” shall be strictly observed.

Upon a teacher’s appointment, assignment to a station, and acceptance of the position, he or she shall not be transferred to another school until after rendering at least three (3) years of service in that school.

Residents of the locality, LGU-funded teachers, substitute teachers, volunteer teachers, and Philippine Business for Education (PBEd) graduates under the 1000 Teachers Program (1000 TP) shall be subject to these hiring guidelines.

Applicant’s response contained many, if not all, of the target behaviors. His/her responses indicate well-developed skills and aptitude for that competency, which would most likely lead to job success. The person’s responses are of superior quality for this job.Applicant’s response covered some of the target behaviors, but not quite at the level that would be ideal for that competency. Still, the quality of the person’s answers leads you to believe that he/she would be successful with some additional exposure and/or training.Applicant’s response contained very few of the target behaviors. Either the behaviors he/she discussed were not at, or even close to, the level indicated in the target behaviors, or the person did not give you enough information for you to have confidence that he/she has that competency at the level needed for success.

Instructional Objectives
Teacher’s objectives reflect high level learning related to curriculum frameworks and standards; they are adapted, where necessary, to the needs of individual students, and permit practical/ workable methods of assessment.Teacher’s objectives represent valuable learning and are suitable for most students in the class; they reflect opportunities for integration and permit practical/ workable methods of assessment.Teacher’s objectives are of moderate value or suitability for students in the class, consisting of a combination of objectives and activities, some of which permit practical/ workable methods of assessment.Teacher’s objectives represent trivial learning, are unsuitable for students, or are stated only as instructional activities, and they do not permit practical/ workable methods of assessment.
2.Mapping Coherent InstructionAll of the elements of the instructional design support the stated instructional objectives, engage students in meaningful learning, and show evidence of student input. Teacher’s lesson or unit is highly coherent and has a clear structure.Most of the elements of the instructional design support the stated instructional objectives and engage students in meaningful learning and the lesson or unit has a clearly defined structure.Some of the elements of the instructional design support the stated instructional objectives and engage students in meaningful learning, while others do not. Teacher’s lesson or unit has a recognizable structure.The various elements of the instructional design do not support the stated instructional objectives or engage students in meaningful learning and the lesson or unit has no defined structure.

Classroom Procedures
Classroom routines and procedures are seamless in their operation, and students assume considerable responsibility for their smooth functioning.Classroom routines and procedures have been established and function smoothly for the most part, with little loss of instruction time.Classroom routines and procedures have been established, but function unevenly or inconsistently, with some loss of instruction time.Classroom routines and procedures are partly inefficient, resulting in the loss of much instructional time.
2. Organizing Physical SpaceTeacher’s classroom is safe and students contribute to ensuring that the physical environment supports the learning of all students.Teacher’s classroom is safe and learning is accessible to all students; the teacher uses physical resources well and ensures that the physical arrangement supports the learning activities.Teacher’s classroom is safe and essential learning accessible to all students but the future arrangement only partially supports the learning activities.Teacher makes poor use of the physical environment resulting in unsafe or inaccessible conditions for some students. There is poor alignment between the physical arrangement and the lesson activities.

1. Knowledge of
Content and Pedagogy
Teacher’s knowledge of content and pedagogy is extensive, showing evidence of a continuing search for improved practice. Teacher actively builds on knowledge of prerequisites and misconceptions when describing instruction or seeking causes for student misunderstanding.Teacher demonstrates solid understanding of the content and its prerequisite relationships and connections with other disciplines. Teacher’s instructional practices reflect current pedagogical knowledge.Teacher’s content and pedagogical knowledge represents basic understanding but does not extend to connections with other disciplines or to possible student misconceptions.Teacher displays little understanding of the subject or structure of the discipline, or of content-related pedagogy.
2.Questioning and Discussion SkillsTeacher formulates many of the high-level questions and assumes responsibility for the participation of all students in the discussion.Teacher’s use of questioning and discussion techniques reflects high-level questions, true discussion, and full participation by all students.Teacher’s use of questioning and discussion techniques is uneven, with some high-level questions, attempts at true discussion, and moderate student participation.Teacher makes poor use of questioning and discussion techniques, with low-level questions, limited student participation, and little true discussion.
3. Students’ LearningStudents are intellectually engaged in challenging content, through well-designed learning tasks, and suitable scaffolding by the teacher, and fully aligned with the instructional outcomes. There is evidence of some student initiation of inquiry, and student contributions to the exploration of important content. The pacing of the lesson provides students the time needed to intellectually engage with and reflect upon their learning and to consolidate their understanding.The learning tasks and activities are aligned with the instructional outcomes and are designed to challenge student thinking, resulting in active intellectual engagement by most students with important and challenging content, and with teacher scaffolding to support that engagement. The pacing of the lesson is appropriate, providing most students the time needed to be intellectually engaged.The learning tasks or prompts are partially aligned with the instructional outcomes but require only minimal thinking by students, allowing most students to be passive or merely compliant. The pacing of the lesson may not provide students the time needed to be intellectually engaged.The learning tasks and activities, materials, resources, instructional groups and/or technology are poorly aligned with the instructional outcomes, or require only rote responses. The pace of the lesson is too slow or rushed. Few students are intellectually engaged or interested.
4.Students’ Response to ActivitiesAll students are cognitively engaged in the activities and in their exploration of content. Students initiate or adapt activities and projects to enhance understanding.Most activities are appropriate to students. Almost all students are cognitively engaged in them.Some activities are appropriate to students and engage them cognitively but others do not.Activities are inappropriate for students in terms of their age or backgrounds. Students are not engaged mentally.
5. Learning ActivitiesLearning activities are highly relevant to students and instructional objectives and key concepts. They progress coherently, producing a unified whole and reflecting recent professional research.Most of the learning activities are suitable to students and instructional objectives and key concepts. Progression of activities in the unit is fairly even, and most activities reflect recent professional research.Only some of the learning activities are suitable to students or instructional objectives and key concepts.
Progression of activities in the unit is uneven, and only some activities reflect recent professional research.
Learning activities are not suitable to students or instructional objectives and key concepts. They do not follow an organized progression and do not reflect recent professional research.

The number of points attained for each of the fifteen (15) listed components shall be added and then divided by sixty (60). The quotient shall then be multiplied by 0.15 or 15%. The product shall then be multiplied by 100.

Example:
Sum of points attained for the 15 components = 45
[(45 / 60 ) x 0.15] x 100 = 11.25
Score for Demonstration Teaching = 11.25 / 15

Applicants for K to 3 who will perform Demonstration Teaching using the mother tongue of the locality where the school being applied for is located shall be given an additional +5 points on top of the score they have obtained.

For applicants who may be assigned in a school located in an IP community and/or serving IP learners, the Division Selection Committee shall give due recognition to an applicant’s knowledge and skill in integrating indigenous knowledge, culture, and skills into the teaching-learning process (as demonstrated in the above aspects).

Applicants shall undergo Demonstration Teaching designed specifically for the teaching positions they are applying for.

An English Proficiency Test (EPT) shall be administered to applicants by the National Education Testing and Research Center (NETRC). The respective Division Testing Coordinators shall coordinate with NETRC regarding the conduct and schedule of the exam in their division.
The total percentage score obtained by an applicant shall be multiplied by the weight of fifteen (15) points, as follows:

Percentage Score = 98% or 0.98
Weighted Points = 15
Rating = .98 x 15 = 14.7 points

CONSTITUTING AND UTILIZING THE REGISTRY OF QUALIFIED APPLICANTS (RQA)

The RQA is the list of qualified applicants for appointment, which shall include their names, permanent addresses, and final evaluation ratings.

It shall be used in filling-up the remaining teacher vacancies only after having implemented DO 7, s. 2015 and there are still vacant Teacher I positions left.

The cut-off score for inclusion in the RQA is seventy (70) points.

The RQA should 1) publish applicants’ names in alphabetical order, 2) show both the results of each criterion and the final overall rating, 3) only include those who obtained total scores of seventy (70) and above, 4) indicate the date of posting, and 5) be signed by the SDS.

Separate RQAs for Kindergarten, Elementary, and Secondary shall be prepared by the Division Selection Committees. The RQA for Kindergarten shall be prepared by the Division Selection Committee for Elementary Schools.

Subject area specialization of the qualified applicants shall be the primary consideration in the secondary school level. Thus, the applicant to be appointed should have the subject-area specialization needed by the school.

The RQAs for Secondary Schools shall be prepared by subject area specialization, as follows: English, Filipino, Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Statistics, General Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Araling Panlipunan, Edukasyon sa Pagpapakatao, Music & Arts, Physical Education & Health, and SPED. Depending on the schools’ TLE offerings, separate RQAs for Agri-Fishery Arts, Home Economics, Information and Communications Technology (ICT), and Industrial Arts shall be prepared as well.

In schools with SPED teacher requirements, SPED specialization of qualified applicants shall be the primary consideration. As such, the applicant to be appointed should have the qualifications stated in Section 7.1.1.3.

Following DepEd Memorandum No. 141, s. 2013 on the Hiring of Graduates of 1000 Teachers Program of the Philippine Business for Education, qualified applicants under PBEd’s 1000 TP program shall be given priority in hiring.

The RQAs should be ready by the last week of June 2015 so that qualified applicants may be appointed by 01 July 2015.

As a general rule, only applicants listed in the RQA are eligible for hiring and appointment, with priority given to bona fide residents of the barangay, municipality, city, or province (in the order as aforestated) where the school is located.

In cases where the number of qualified applicants from the barangay is greater than the number of available Teacher I items, priority in hiring shall be given to applicants from the barangay according to their overall rating (number score) in the RQA, from highest to lowest. The same rule shall apply in the appointment of applicants from the municipality, city, and province.

In cases where all those in the RQA have been appointed and assigned to their respective stations and there are still available positions, the concerned Schools Division Office shall coordinate with a neighboring SDO whose RQA has not yet been exhausted and facilitate their applicants’ deployment to the Division, subject to the applicants’ written concurrence. If an applicant refuses to be deployed to the other division, no deployment shall be effected. The evaluation process shall not be repeated; the scores given by the neighboring SDO shall be respected.

In connection with Item 8.12 above, the order of utilizing RQAs shall be as follows:

  1. RQA in accordance with DO 7, s. 2015
  2. RQA in accordance with this Order
  3. RQA(s) of neighboring SDO(s)

In the event that there are still available positions after having implemented the guidelines in this Order, a new call for the submission of applications shall be initiated by the SDO, for evaluation and selection subject to the criteria and guidelines set in this Order.

  2. Darklight says

      1. Mark Llego says

        Hi Ms. Angel, ang makaka sagot lang po sa tanong niyo ay yung mismong Division office na pinag applyan niyo. Pag may website ang DO i-check mo lang palagi yung mga issuances na nilalabas nila. 🙂

  11. Venice Cervantes says

    Hi – I would like to confirm if the applicant has already passed a board exam (not LET/PBET), should he still needed to take the LET/PBET after getting 18 units of Education course?

    1. Key says

      Yes, you need to take the LET. Required in HS. Also, you need it for regularization.

  12. glenda brillantes says

  19. Nur Jannah (JM) says

    Good day po, thank you sa website na to na sa umpisa pa lang ito yung nakatulung sa mga tanung ko….

    may tanung lang po ako regarding sa ranking especially po nito:

    Teaching experience of kindergarten volunteer teachers (KVT) and LGU-funded teachers shall merit additional points on top of the score they obtain from the above points system, as follows:

    Less than 1 year experience = +1 point
    1 to less than 3 years experience = +2 points
    3 or more years experience = +3 points

    di ba pag sinabing LGU are teachers na nagturo thru municipal payroll? tama po ba ako mam? kasi bakit po sa amin hindi po sinama ang tchng exp. ko sa LGU dhil di na daw po kasama tlaga ang LGU….pls i need help po sa may alam…

    thank you po…

    1. marcos m banih says

      meron po b kayo certificate that you teach as sponsored by LGU, tapos na credit ba ito sa DEPED kung oo dapat isinali nila. yon po ang pagka alam ko ty

      1. Nur Jannah (JM) says

        a blessed night po…thank you from your reply sir Marcos…yes I have a certificate po… but during the ranking po sinabi na may moratorium daw po sa aming div na ihinto muna ang LGU funded..by start ng june d pa nman cnbi na ganun…during the ranking na mismo…

      2. AJ Lyka says

        Good day po. ask ko din po yung situation ko.. nag apply po ako as volunteer sa highschool malapit sa amin. pero hindi po ako LGU funded.. as in absolute volunteer po talaga without any compensation.. my additional point po ba yun?? thanks po.. GBU

    2. Sakura Dg Desu Ne says

      basta meron po kayong MOA between sa school na nagrender kau ng service nyo at assignment order ng SDS nyo po kasama po yan sa pts. sa teaching experience nyo po…

  20. Nur Jannah (JM) says

    May tanung lang po ako regarding dito :

    Teaching experience of kindergarten volunteer teachers (KVT) and LGU-funded teachers shall merit additional points on top of the score they obtain from the above points system, as follows:

    Less than 1 year experience = +1 point
    1 to less than 3 years experience = +2 points
    3 or more years experience = +3 points

    ibig po sbhin ba nito if u were municipal contractual or labor payroll teacher then it includes u sa guidelines na madagdagan ang points? kasi po dito sa amin bakit di sinama ang tchng exp ng LGU funded?

    alhamdulillah… insha Allah magrerank pa ulit sa amin at maksali… tumaas ang equivalent ng TOR…

  21. maricel says

    I am happy with this new memo at least many will be given a chance (I hope it includes me) na magkaroon ng appointment..

  22. Kimberly Christine Racasa says

  23. jacezy says

    1. marcos m banih says

      cguro mam dito pumapasok yong cnasabi nila na discretion of the appointing authority

    2. earl says

      dipende rin po kasi sa need ng school kung bakit di ka na tawag. ganun rin kasi sa akin, rank 1 pero hindi tinawag kasi di ako pasok sa currently needed(combination of skills and education kasi) hehehehe. patience is a virtue.
