How to Request for Service Credits Earned
The Department of Education confirmed that teachers shall be entitled to Proportional Vacation Leave (PVL) relative to their service during vacation time. Read DO 53, s2003
Teachers who are requested to attend the staff development program/meetings/seminars before the first day of service may be entitled to service credits subject to the provisions of
DepEd Order 53, s. 2003 - Deped Guidelines on Grant of Vacation Service Credits to Teachers
The head of office or school should be the one to recommend approval of a request to render vacation service and the Schools Division Superintendent should be the one to approve or disapprove it.
Although you are qualified enough to be granted with service credits if your Principal or Head of Office do not do something to request for it, then you will not be benefited.
Teachers should follow procedures in the grant of service credits. To request for service credit/s earned, teachers must submit the following:
- SPECIAL ORDER FOR SERVICE CREDIT - DOWNLOAD HERE
- ATTENDANCE SHEET
- CS 48 or DTR - DOWNLOAD HERE
- ACCOMPLISHMENT REPORT/NARRATIVE REPORT - DOWNLOAD SAMPLE (available later)
To facilitate the grant of your service credit/s, accomplish the requirements enumerated above and submit it to your Schools Division Office PERSONALLY. Approach your receiving officer and seek advise regarding your request.
For attendance or participation in DepEd –wide programs and projects, the Central office shall make necessary issuances on the grant of vacation service credits. Teachers are also required to submit an accomplished report and a duly signed DTR or CS 48 after completion of the vacation service.
“Principals of teachers who are attending staff development programs are required to submit seminar or workshop or training design and outputs duly approved by the Schools Division Superintendent concerned.
