In doing so, this office reiterates the Revised Guidelines on the Transfer of Teachers from One Station to Another based on the provisions of DepEd Order No. 22, s. 2013, which must be observed by all schools in both elementary & secondary level.
2. Transfer of teachers from one station to another can be categorized into:
A. Teachers who are seeking transfer to another station which is in need of additional teachers;
B. Teachers to be transferred “in the exigency of service”
3. For teachers who are seeking for transfer to another station which is in need of additional teachers, the following situations should be given priority:

b. The teacher has served for more than five years outside his/her home barangay/municipality;
c. The teacher is a bonafide resident of the barangay, municipality, city, or province where the school is located (RA 8190, Localization Law), as evidenced by the teacher’s Voter’s ID;

5. With the cited priority situations in paragraph 3, the office came up with corresponding points with slight modification on the output of the Seminar Workshop on the Ranking of Teachers (SWRTea) conducted last School Year 2016-2017, This is to objectively identify who among the candidates seeking for transfer to another station is most qualified, which has still to be implemented for SY 2018-2019 with the details below:

4.5-5.0 = 30 pts.
3.5-4.4 = 20 pts.

7. All applications with the supporting documents must be submitted by the applicant to the school they are applying for from May 1-10, 2018.
