Undersecretary Annalyn M. Sevilla posted an update on her Facebook page regarding the release of clothing allowance and the new sets of uniform designs. Read the full text below:
DepEd Uniform Committee (DUC) has met today (with 11 DepEd teaching and non-teaching Organization representatives, as regular members) to discuss the release and use of the FY 2021 clothing allowance of P6,000 per eligible employee. It was chaired by Usec Revsee Escobedo, with myself (as Vice-Chair of DUC) and Usec Jess Mateo.
Here are the agreements made in the DUC meeting, which shall be presented for final approval by Sec LMB and execom members:
1. Release of clothing allowance shall be done not earlier than the first working day of every year. This shall be April 5, 2021, for this SY 21-22.
More from Teach Pinas:
● Class Observation Temporary Suspension for All Teachers
● Gatchalian: DepEd needs more personnel to reduce teachers’ workload
● GSIS updates on loan payments
2. New sets of uniform for SY 21-22 shall be issued before the release of the 2021 clothing allowance with due consideration to the ff factors (general availability of the textile materials in the market; comfort and durability of the textile materials; and presentable, modest and with integrity over-all outlook of the uniform design).
3. In consideration with the current crisis/pandemic and the continuing implementation of the blended learning delivery and alternative working arrangements, SY 21-22 shall be considered a “transition period” to allow ample time for employees to prepare for the new set of prescribed uniforms and will be lenient to personnel who will still opt to use the old uniform design. But starting SY 22-23, all employees should wear the new set of uniforms.
Let us wait for the final and official issuance on the design and details of the new set of uniforms for teaching and non-teaching personnel for SY21-22, which will come out before April 2021.
Thank you for the relevant and constructive inputs of the teaching and non-teaching organizations present during today’s meeting.
