Results-Based Performance Management System-Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (RPMS-PPST) for School Year 2021-2022
Faithful to the commitment of the Department of Education (DepEd) to quality teaching, it being recognized as vital to the attainment of desired learning outcomes, the Department remains steadfast in the efforts to anchor its human resource systems and actions on well-defined professional standards for teacher quality. Consistent with DepEd Order (DO) No. 2, s. 2015 prescribing the Guidelines on the Establishment and Implementation of the Results-Based Performance Management System (RPMS) in the Department of Education and pursuant to Section 5 of DO 42, s. 2017 on the National Adoption and Implementation of the Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST), which mandates that all performance appraisals for teachers shall be based on this set of standards, this Department has been integrating and embedding the PPST into the RPMS of teachers since School Year (SY) 2018-2019.
For SY 2021-2022, the Department aims to complete the full cycle of embedding the 37 PPST indicators into teachers’ performance. This DepEd Memorandum titled Implementation of the Results-Based Performance Management System-Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (RPMS-PPST) for School Year 2021-2022 provides for the guidelines on the performance management and appraisal of teachers using the remaining 18 indicators in their RPMS. With the implementation of the Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan (BE-LCP), the sudden shift from face to face to remote learning, and now the gradual implementation of the limited face to face classes, the tools, forms, and protocols stipulated herein are developed and modified to ensure that the measures of performance this school year are appropriate, adaptive, and relevant to capture teachers’ actual performance in the context of the pandemic.
This DM shall cover all Teachers and Master Teachers in all public elementary and secondary schools and community learning centers (CLCs), including those Teachers and Master Teachers who are reassigned as full-time Teacher-Broadcasters in DepEd Central Office (CO). It shall guide the ratees, raters, approving authorities, and other stakeholders in the implementation of PPST-aligned RPMS through the prescribed performance indicators that shall be reflected in the Individual Performance Commitment and Review Forms (IPCRFs) of teachers for SY 2021-2022.
For purposes of implementation of RPMS-PPST for SY 2021-2022, these guidelines are prescribed.
a. With the continued delivery of basic education services through
various distance learning delivery modalities (DLDMs), the changes in the expectations of teachers necessitates a COVID-19 responsive RPMS while upholding quality teaching using the professional standards. The modifications in RPMS, its tools, processes, and protocols, for SY 2021-2022 captures the DepEd current system that governs teachers’ functions.
b. Consistent with the School Calendar and Activities for SY 2021-2022 to include all the preparatory and end-of-school year activities stipulated in Enclosure No. 2 of DO 029, s. 2021, the performance cycle for all teaching personnel for SY 2021-2022 shall cover the performance from August 1, 2021 to July 31, 2022. The timeline of activities for each phase of the RPMS cycle is illustrated below, particulars of which is detailed in Annex A.

c. The performance period prescribed herein shall be used as basis for the determination of length of service for purposes of computation of the Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) for teachers and other school-based personnel pursuant to applicable guidelines.
d. The PPST-aligned RPMS tools that shall be used for SY 2021-2022 are attached as follows:
i. Appendix 1A: RPMS Tool for Proficient Teachers for SY 2021-2022;
ii. Appendix IB: RPMS Tool for Highly Proficient Teachers for SY 2021-2022;

iv. Appendix 2B: RPMS Tool for Highly Proficient Teacher-Broadcasters for SY 2021-2022.
e. To help teachers in understanding the performance objectives and indicators to be used in SY 2021-2022, and in determining the acceptable means of verification (MOV) for each indicator, a supplemental guide on the RPMS-PPST performance objectives, indicators, and MOV is attached as Annex B.
A glossary is provided in each tool as well as in Annex B to set the operational definition of concepts from the indicators and of certain MOV.
f. The following further guidelines are likewise provided to clarify specific operational concerns in the assessment of performance of teacher broadcasters:
i. Pursuant to DM-PHROD-2020-00294, it is understood that the nature of work of the Teacher-Broadcasters shall [be] commensurate as regular teaching load; hence, in the assessment of their performance, teacher-broadcasters shall use the RPMS-PPST tools for teacher-broadcasters as prescribed in Appendices 3 and 4. In view thereof, all duties and responsibilities of a teacher-broadcaster that do not fall under the purview of the expectations set for teachers shall only be considered as Plus Factor, subject to applicable rules and regulations on the rating plus factors.
ii. Implementors of TV-Video/Radio-based Instructions (TV-Video/RBI) learning delivery modality in the CO, RO, and SDO are urged to ensure that the detailed duties and responsibilities of the concerned teacher-broadcasters, as may be indicated in their respective Terms of Reference or Job Description, shall be reflective of the functions and expectations of teachers in the context of remote learning.
iii. Only teachers who are officially reassigned to the CO, Regional Offices (RO), and/or Schools Division Offices (SDO) through the issuance of the appropriate reassignment papers (Special Order), as approved by the concerned Schools Division Superintendent (SDS), shall use the RPMS-PPST tools for teacher-broadcasters (Appendices 2A and 2B).
iv. Teachers who perform functions of a regular teacher and are assigned additional load/s as teacher-broadcaster shall use the RPMS tool for regular teachers, as may be appropriate. Their performance as a teacher-broadcaster shall be considered as Plus Factor.
