Enclosure of DepEd Order 02 s 2024
The Department of Education (DepEd) fervently believes that the core of quality basic education is a vibrant and quality teaching workforce. With this commitment, it is imperative to build a work environment for teachers that upholds and protects their welfare. This shall include measures to protect the workload and working hours of teachers.
Reports and studies have indicated that teachers are being assigned additional tasks that shift their focus from teaching. The 2018 Teacher Workload Balance Study identified approximately fifty (50) common ancillary services assigned to teachers in addition to their regular teaching load. These extra duties are often the result of understaffed schools being unable to provide sufficient support services. The absence of standardized guidelines and a mechanism to review these tasks further compounds the issue. Research from various institutions suggests that the increase in administrative assignments significantly impacts teacher workload, ultimately affecting teaching quality and teacher well-being.
Through this Order, the Department aims to remove the administrative tasks of teachers to enable them to maximize their time in actual classroom teaching. With this endeavor, they shall be able to focus on the teaching and learning process and become effective facilitators of learning. Furthermore, this initiative by the Department shall help protect and uplift the welfare and well-being of public school teachers to support them to teach better which in turn shall realize quality learning among the Filipino learners.DO_s2024_002-3-8
