Teachers are required to submit reports, not to report to station starting April 6

Teachers are required to submit reports, not to require them to report to station to render unpaid work beyond April 5, the last day of School Year 2018–2019.

As stated in the Deped School Calendar for 20 18-2109, the last day of classes is April 5, 2019. It is understood that the start of school break starts on April 6, 2019. 

All public school teachers are required to comply all the necessary reports concerning school matters, hence teachers should not be required to report during summer vacation unless directed by the School Division Superintendent in the exigency of the service and subject to existing rules on grant of service credits.
SOURCE: Regional Memorandum No. 157 dated April 9, 2019 

But this directive does not exempt the teachers from the obligations of accomplishing and submitting all required forms especially on the end of school year reports.

School Heads are given broad discretion to issue an office memorandum containing the list of all valid reports and documents that are to be accomplished by the concerned teachers.

In the event of non-compliance with the submission of the required reports and documents an appropriate disciplinary action or a reminder shall be issued to the concerned teacher.

According to source, “It is not true that teachers will be marked absent during summer vacation. The salary we are receiving on these days is our proportional vacation pay (PVP). We already earned this payment and it is not true that we are being paid to report during these vacation period.

DepEd also made it clear that there is really no enrollment this year (referring to school year break), as the students are automatically enrolled that is why teachers are encouraged to post the list of the names of students during the ‘Brigada Eskwela’ period.

Regarding the scheduling of enrollment period, teachers also are not required because there’s no enrollment period included in our calendar. “Wala naman talagang schedule of enrollment ngayong summer. Tingnan niyo ang School Calendar natin.

However, in the exigency of public service, teachers may be required to report and render services which shall be compensated with the equivalent vacation service credits, as per DO No. 53, s 2003.
