MANILA, Philippines – In order to help relieve teachers from the burden of performing administrative tasks due to the lack or absence of non-teaching personnel in schools, Budget and Management Secretary Amenah  F. Pangandaman has approved the request of the Department of Education (DepEd) for the creation of 5,000 non-teaching positions for fiscal year (FY) 2024.

To concretize this commitment, DepEd Order No. 002, s. 2024 was issued, mandating the removal of administrative tasks from the workload of teachers, enabling them to focus and maximize their time on the teaching and learning process.


Pangandaman expressed her support to the said endeavor, saying that the creation of thousands of non-teaching positions reflects President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s commitment to uphold the overall welfare of both teachers and learners.


“Our educators already have their plates full. By approving the creation of 5,000 non-teaching positions, we aim to relieve teachers of administrative tasks and allow them to focus on quality instruction. This move will significantly benefit our educators and enhance the country’s education system,” Pangandaman said.

“Patunay po ito na tinutupad ni Pangulong BBM ang mga pangako niya. This is his campaign promise, and now, his administration is making it happen. Sa Bagong Pilipinas, patuloy po nating bibigyang prayoridad ang kapakanan ng ating mga guro at mag-aaral. After all, they are at the heart of our national development goals,” she added.

The 5,000 non-teaching positions within DepEd are Administrative Officer (AO) II positions with Salary Grade (SG) 11 for FY 2024 will be deployed in various School Division Offices and schools in the Cordillera Administrative Region, National Capital Region (NCR), Regions I, II, III, IV-A, IV-B, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII, and CARAGA.

Moreover, the appropriate funding requirements for the filled positions out of said created positions shall be charged against the Miscellaneous Personnel Benefits Fund in the FY (Fiscal Year) 2024 General Appropriations Act, while the Retirement and Life Insurance Premium is chargeable against Automatic Appropriations.
