DepEd to enhance teacher positions with higher salary grades

MalacaƱang 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 sai


“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 I

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.” 


When a Teacher I’s salary grade is raised to Salary Grade 14 under the third tranche of the Salary Standardization Law V, the pay would be equivalent to P32,321. This would require approximately P92.1 billion on top of the annual compensation cost of Teachers I, II, and III.


Under the fourth tranche of the Salary Standardization Law which will be effective next year, Step 1 of Salary Grade 13 would be equivalent to P31,320 while Step 1 of Salary Grade 14 will amount to P33,843.
