2019 DepEd Equivalents Record Form (ERF) Requirements




To facilitate the processing of requests for upgrading of positions of teacher and other teaching related positions thru the Equivalents Record Form (ERF), the following are the required documents.

AUTOMATIC UPGRADING OF POSITIONS FOR ELIGIBLE PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS THROUGH EQUIVALENTS RECORD FORM (ERF) SCHEME

It has been observed that many teachers retire as Teacher I despite having served for 20 years or more. An application of the ERF Scheme should have upgraded the positions of these teachers. It is possible that many teachers are unaware of the opportunities offered by such scheme or do not bother to apply because of the documentary requirements.

As a manifestation of the DepEd concern for the welfare of these teachers and to provide adequate recognition for dedicating the best years of their life to teaching, regional/division offices are hereby directed to upgrade the positions of teachers entitled to “automatic position upgrading”. – DECS Order No. 52, s. 1999




Automatic Position Upgrading

Automatic Position Upgrading is hereby defined as adjustment of salary given to Teachers I who have rendered 20 or more years satisfactory teaching service without the need for filing an application to ERF upgrading.

The computation of the length of service shall include only the years of teaching experience which were not credited in the computation of step increment due to length of service as provided under Joint CSC-DBM Circular No. 1, s. 1990.




The salary increase corresponding to the upgrading of the position shall be effected through the issuance of Notice of Salary Adjustment by the Schools Division Superintendent or Head of the School for secondary schools. The teacher shall be given the salary rate of the new salary grade corresponding to his designated salary step.

Division offices are directed to identify the teachers who meet the length of service requirement provided herein. Priority shall be given to teachers who meet the length of service requirement at earlier dates. However, retirable teachers shall be given priority.

Certification as to qualified teachers shall be submitted to the regional director by the division superintendent concerned as bases for payment in addition to the Notice of Salary Adjustment and Service Records.

REMINDERS:
