- Inclosed is a copy of Memorandum Circular No. 2, s. 1987, of the Civil Service Commission regarding the guidelines and procedures for original appointment in the career service, which is self-explanatory.
- Teachers or those occupying positions embraced in the term “teacher” under the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers (R.A. 4670), are not covered by the said memorandum circular. They fall under Section 4 of R.A. 4670 which provides, as follows:
“Sec. 4 Probationary Period – When recruitment takes place after adequate training and professional preparation in any school recognized by the Government, no probationary period preceding regular appointment shall be imposed if the teacher possesses the appropriate civil service eligibility. Provided, however, That where, due to the exigencies of the service, it is necessary to employ a teacher a person who possesses the minimum educational qualifications herein above set forth but lacks the appropriate civil service eligibility, such person shall be appointed on a provisional status and shall undergo a period of probation for not less than one year from and after the date of his provisional appointment.
- This Order should be brought to the attention of all concerned for their information, guidance and observance.
- Strict compliance is desired.
