TeacherPH reiterates the Revised Guidelines on the Transfer of Teachers from one station to another based on the DepEd Order No. 22, s. 2013.
TRANSFER OF TEACHERS FROM ONE STATION TO ANOTHER
Transfer of teachers from one station to another can be considered when;
a. The recipient school/station is in need of additional teacher.
b. The teacher is declared excess by the principal//school head and is needed in another school/district/division. The teacher is subject for transfer.
Note: transfer maybe made even without the consent of the teacher
c. Teachers to be transferred “in the exigency of the service”
In the event that teachers are transferred in the exigency of the service, the following may serve as a guide for transfer:
- Teachers who were last to be hired (Last in, First out)
- Non-resident where the school is located
- Resident of the barangay or municipality of the proposed recipient school
When teachers identified in b and c desire not to transfer, they shall be given additional assignment, such as:
- Remedial and summer classes
- Work related to Alternative Delivery Modes (ADMs)
- Task concerning Alternative Learning Systems (ALS)
- Assignment that their School heads may deem proper
