Teachers, especially who are beginners in the public school system must be oriented not only on how to conduct a good classroom management as they go on daily teaching. They should also be oriented regarding the primary concept in compensation, which includes the basic pay received by an employee pursuant to his employment, including all other fringe benefits accruing to his position. Aside from this is the hiring rate which is the first step in salary grade of a given class. As part of it, they must be informed well such as the Proportional Vacation Pay (PVP) so that they don’t expect too much for the continued payment of their salary once they are included within the payroll system. They may not receive the salary in April and May, or they might be deactivated in payroll from June to July due to earned PVP.
The following are the most-frequently asked questions about Proportional Vacation Pay (PVP):
1. What is Proportional Vacation Pay?
• Proportional Vacation Pay (PVP) refers to compensation of teaching personnel during Christmas and summer vacation computed in proportion to the number of days they have served during the school year.
2. Who are entitled to Proportional Vacation Pay?
• All teachers who rendered one (1) year or more in the service are entitled to full payment of PVP, provided that they have not incurred more than three (3) days of absences without pay from the beginning up to the end of the school year.

The reference for computation of PVP is under the DepED Memorandum No. 86, s. 2013, entitled Computation of Public School Teachers’ Proportional Vacation Pay (PVP) for SY 2012-2013.
• Newly hired teachers who have rendered at least more than one (1) month in service are entitled to Proportional Vacation Pay (PVP) salary. Even they were hired in the middle of the school year. Their salary was computed based on the affectivity of their appointment, the basis of the reckoning date of summer vacation days they have earned in a school year.
• Retired teachers are also entitled to payment of PVP. The same computation is applied. The total days rendered is until the day before the effective date of retirement.

Hence, if you are entitled only, for example, 64 days PVP, eight (8) days shall be deducted as PVP-Overpayment.
• NOTE: Your deductions on PVP-Overpayment are based on the PVP Reports submitted to the Regional Payroll Services Unit (RPSU) which originally came from respective districts. It is usually reflected in payroll during the months of June or July.
4. Why I am still deducted of PVP-Overpayment since I am already deducted of my absences?

The effectivity date of your regular appointment as Teacher-I is the basis for computing your PVP. Your services earned as a teacher in a local school board shall not be counted in the computation of PVP.
7. Can teachers use services rendered during Christmas and summer vacation to offset the over-payment in PVP?
