DO 17, s. 2006 – Revised Hiring Guidelines for Teacher I Positions in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools Amended by
Schools Division Superintendents
Public Elementary and Secondary School Heads
- The hiring guidelines for Teacher I positions in public schools were promulgated under DepED Order No. 16, s. 2005 (Guidelines on the Recruitment, Evaluation, Selection and Appointment of Teachers in Public Schools) in pursuit of the Department’s Schools First Initiative (SFI).
- As a result of the incessant monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of the guidelines for the hiring of new teachers for school year 2005-2006, it was determined that significant revisions are necessary to further strengthen the selection process for Teacher I positions.
- It is reiterated that Regional Directors continue ensuring the compliance of Division Offices in their areas of jurisdiction. Schools Division Superintendents are likewise enjoined to maintain discussions with local government officials and furnish them with copies of the Registry of Qualified Applicants (RQAs), which they may opt to use in determining who are to be appointed to available locally-funded items.
- Anyone found violating the provisions of the revised hiring guidelines embodied in this Order shall be dealt with accordingly. Wide dissemination hereof is required.
