Public school teachers, staff to receive DepEd anniversary bonus

MANILA, Philippines – Public school teachers and even staff can now look forward to a bonus this coming December.

In celebration of the Department of Education’s 155th anniversary on December 20, a bonus of P3,000 will be given to teachers and staff.

A statement released by Annalyn Sevilla, education undersecretary for finance-budget and performance monitoring on Saturday, October 27 confirmed the department's readiness to release the bonus on time. She said, “Before December, we'll make sure that it is already downloaded and available on or before DepEd's anniversary.”

Last month, in celebration of World Teachers’ Day, education secretary Leonor Briones shared several good news for all public school teachers.

Aside from confirming the anniversary bonus of P3,000, Briones said that they are also increasing the hardship post allowance. DepEd is also on its way to approving the increase of chalk allowance from P3,500 to P5,000.

On the issue of “overworked teachers,” DepEd already asked the Department of Budget and Management and the Civil Service Commission to create non-teaching positions to help teachers with clerical and ancillary tasks.
