The Department of Education (DepED) is set to give action to “Loaded” teachers. DepED Spokesman Michael Poa said, they are aware of the problem regarding the overloaded teachers and that they will give a solution to it.
According to him, they are also aware that there are some schools with excess teachers, so the solution is to transfer them to other schools with overloaded teachers.
“Diyan naman po sa teachers, we understand the situation, actually it was the topic in the mancom this week, mayroon po talaga mga teachers na medyo loaded, meron din schools na mayroong excess,” said Poa.
The DepED Official explained that this is the fastest way to solve the problem.
“Doon po sa schools na may excess na teaching staff ay subject to rules on transfer, kung papayag po sila, we transfer these teachers doon sa may kakulangan,” Poa added.

Teacher’s Consent for Transfer – As per DO 22, S. 2013
While efforts shall be exhausted to secure the consent of a teacher to be transferred, there are certain conditions which can validly be considered as “in the exigency of the service” and transfers may be made even without the consent of the teacher. These include the following:
- When the pupil/student-teacher ratio of the school is below 35:1 for elementary and 27:1 for secondary level, except when the school is implementing multigrade classes;
- When there is a considerable decrease in enrolment in certain schools arising from evacuation due to armed conflict, national disasters, resettlement of families, closure of large private firms in the area, and other similar circumstances; or
- When the teacher is declared excess by the principal/school head (SH) and his/her expertise/area of specialization is needed in another school/district/division.
As such, in the event that teachers are transferred in the exigency of the service, the following may serve as a guide in the decision on whom to transfer:
- Teachers who were last to be hired (Last in, First out);
- Non-residents of the barangay or municipality where the school is located;
- Residents of the barangay or municipality of the proposed recipient school; or
- Secondary school teachers teaching subjects other than their areas of specialization.
Should teachers identified in Paragraph Nos. 3 and 4 desire not to transfer, they shall be given additional assignments such as remedial and summer classes, work related to Alternative Delivery Modes (ADMs), tasks concerning Alternative Learning Systems (ALS), and other assignments that their respective SHs may deem proper.
