Quality teaching, DepEd said, is recognized as “vital to the attainment of desired learning outcomes.”

Given this, DepEd issued Memorandum No. 004, s. 2022 or the Implementation of the Results-Based Performance Management System (RPMS)-Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers for School Year 2021-2022 dated Feb. 9, 2022.

DepEd said that the new issuance will provide guidelines on the performance management and appraisal of teachers using the remaining 18 indicators in their RPMS.

With the implementation of the Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan (BE-LCP), DepEd said that the “sudden shift from face to face classes to remote learning and now the gradual implementation of the limited face to face classes, the tools, forms and protocols stipulated herein are developed and modified to ensure that the measures of performance this school year are appropriate, adaptive, and relevant to capture teachers’ actual performance in the context of the pandemic.”

The guidelines, DepEd said, will cover all Teachers and Master Teachers in all public elementary and secondary schools and community learning centers (CLCs), including those Teachers and Master Teachers who are reassigned as full-time Teacher-Broadcasters in DepEd Central Office (CO).
