DepEd reminds teachers to refrain buying ready-made lesson plans and modules online, use references provided by DepEd instead.

Department of Education received several reports about online selling of Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELCs) and some teachers are patronizing it. DepEd reminds everyone that such MELCs are not for sale and they strongly condemn this kind of act which takes advantage of the current crisis we are in.

Schools are advised not to create a new list of learning competencies in every learning area since everything will be provided and will be available through the MELCs. However, schools are encouraged to enhance and contextualize MELCs.

Starting June 1, teachers are tasked to prepare weekly Learning Activity Sheets, participate in capacity building activities, assist in orienting parents, and prepare learners for the formal start of classes.

To avoid confusion and misinformation, DepEd advised everyone to wait for official announcements and statements on their end.

DepEd reiterates and condemns the selling scheme of MELCs online.
