DepEd to improve teacher positions with higher salary grades
Malacañang is considering to issue an executive order that will enhance teacher positions with higher salary grades, DepEd said.
Education Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan said some teachers are stuck at Teacher III because Master Teacher I demands high educational requirements.
“Ito ay isang pending EO natin now with the Office of the Executive Secretary that will add several more teaching levels,” Malaluan said.
“Magdadagdag tayo ng Teacher IV, V, VI and VII that will have their corresponding higher salary grade of Salary Grade of 14, 15, 16, and 17,” he added.
Malaluan revealed that some teachers retire at Teacher II.
He said the department is expanding the promotional opportunities of teachers.
“The proposal already received concurrence from the Civil Service Commission,” he said.
“The DepEd is waiting for the concurrence of the Professional Regulation Commission and comments from the Department of Budget and Management.”
