SHARING OF DEPED EMAIL AND PASSWORD
We have received several reports that DepEd Emails and passwords are in possession of private lending institutions. We have encountered several instances where staff of such companies have posted in the DepEd Workplace about their agencies’ loan services and other marketing ads.
In accordance with the DepEd Order No. 85, s. 2012 – “Policy on the Establishment of DepEd Email Service“, the Department of Education (DepEd) established the DepEd Email Service as one of the official means of communication; for use by its permanent employees and authorized consultants, personnel, and staff, as such it is hereby reiterated that DepEd Emails are properties of the government. DepEd Emails and passwords must be kept confidential and must not be shared especially to groups and agencies that are not under the Department of Education.
For strict compliance.
Alain Del B. Pascua
