DBM: Over 75,000 teaching positions approved

Department of Education (DepEd) has requested funding for more teachers, and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has approved the creation of 75,242 teaching positions.

DBM announced that the new teaching positions will be for kindergarten/elementary, junior high school (JHS), and senior high school (SHS) for school year 2018-2019.

DepEd needs to hire more teachers in order to address the inadequate number of personnel in public schools nationwide.

The funding requirements to cover salaries and other forms of compensation for the new positions shall be charged against the FY 2018 Built-in Appropriations (New School Personnel Positions). Notably, only filled positions will be covered by the DBM’s issuance of a Special Allotment Release Order (SARO).

The 75, 242 new teaching positions are summarized as follows:
