2016 Principals’ Test Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why do we need to secure first the Certificate of Eligibility from the Schools Division Office?
This is to ensure that the SDO can certify that you meet the eligibility requirements. It is also a way to track the applications. SDOs are highly encouraged to develop learning interventions to prepare the applicants.
What are the documents that we should email?
- Certificate of Eligibility from the SDO Personnel Section
- Performance Rating for the past 2 rating periods: PAST/PASAG in SY 2014-2015 and IPCRF in SY 2015-2016. (Pages with the rating & signature of rater only.)
- Signed Service Record;
- Designation Order as Teacher-In-Charge signed by the Superintendent (for TICs)
- Certification of managerial and administrative experience from DepEd-recognized private institution or CHED-recognized higher education institution (if you had 5 experience from non-DepEd institutions).
* Photographed files shall be accepted provided that the copies are clear.
For easy reference, indicate the following in the email:
- Subject heading: Surname, First Name;
- In line text: SDO, school name and cellphone number; and
- Date and time the online form was accomplished.
Can an Education Program Specialist / Senior Education Program Specialist II/ Planning Officer III/ Project Development Officer II apply for the examination?
If the applicant meets any of the eligibility requirements as of November 6, 2016, they may take the examination. That is, if he/she was previously a Teacher III for five (5) years or Head Teacher for one (1) year before transfer/promotion to that position.
Does NEAP have a review center or is giving reviewers?
NEAP and BHROD value the credibility and integrity of the examination; they are NOT, in any way, affiliated with individuals or institutions offering and providing review sessions or reviewers online.
Test applicants are warned against individuals or organizations that claim to have access to the content of the examination.
Applicants, individuals or organizations who will have direct or indirect request for test content and/or perform any act of bribery (monetary or gifts) to Central Office (CO), RO and SDO employees will be subject for investigation and/or filing of corresponding administrative cases. Such cases encountered may be reported to firstname.lastname@example.org.
