Moreover, the SDOs shall disburse 100% of the transportation allowance and 50% of teaching aid and stipend for the first release, while the remaining 50% shall be based on the enrolment of learning facilitators through the Learner Information System (LIS). Computation of teaching aid shall be based on DO 59, s. 2016.
