  3. Good Day sir!
    May we know if there is new guidelines on the QS for Teachers applying for the reclassification of regular teacher item to Special Education Teacher item. I am asking this because the salary garde now of SPET 1 is SG 14. In the CSC website, SPET 1 is still SG 13.
    This will be our basis for Updating the DepEd Order Issued in 1998
    Thank you for a reply

  4. Good day Sir thank you for this information because i am so much qualified if our division followed this guidelines of qualification standards from Teacher 1 to SpEd Teacher 1 but sad to say our Division HR informed us that there is a new CSC Office memorandum No. 65 s. 2018 which contain a new QS to be followed the ” 1995 Department of Education Qualification Standards Manual for Unique Positions Approved on June 28, 1995 by the CSC-NCR.” SpEd Teacher should be a baccalaureate in SPED kahit10 years na akong nagtuturo sa special children at kahit meron akong 18 units sa MEDSpEd at SpEd training for 2 months.
