1 DM no. 291 s. 2008 on Mon Jul 04, 2011 5:28 pm


Arresto Menor
Good day!

Please help me in interpreting the DM no. 291 s. 2008 which is regarding the teaching load of the public school teacher. As stated, the teacher will only have 6 hours actual classroom teaching and the remaining 2 hours will be spent for teaching related activities.

It also states that all advisorship and/or special assignments for the entire school year must be counted one teaching load.

But some of the school heads have different interpretation to this. Because according to them, the 6 hours teaching load is the actual teaching load and does not include the special assignments or advisorship. This really makes me confuse, because as a public school teacher I want to claim for a fee with regards to overload payment.

At this moment this is my daily teaching load:

Monday 360 minutes
Tuesday 300 minutes
Wednesday 360 minutes
Thursday 300 minutes
Friday 240 minutes

Total 1,560 minutes


In the computation, my special assignment which is the IT Coordinator is not included. In which, I handle the computer laboratory and the adviser of a fourth year class.

With that, correct me if i'm wrong but I added 60 minutes a day... 300 minutes a week, as stated in the memorandum that special assignment is considered as 1 teaching load.

In that case, since I have two special assignments, I will have an additional of 600 minutes teaching load for it.

So to compute,

1,560 minutes actual classroom teaching
600 minutes load for special assignments


I would like to ask for your legal advice on this matter.

Thank you and God bless.
