Public school teachers may seek reimbursement for the costs incurred in reproducing modules of learning.
“We recognize why some teachers have been unable to wait for the funds to be transferred. We will fund their expenses if they have receipts, according to the office of the Undersecretary of Finance,” Education Undersecretary for Curriculum Diosdado San Antonio said on Tuesday in an interview with “The Chiefs” on One News / TV5.
Earlier sources said that teachers had to pay out money or obtain contributions to finance learning modules’ printing and replication.
Teachers are not expected to collect money for the printing of modules because there is a P9-billion budget for that reason, education officials said.
If achieved in the spirit of Brigada Eskwela, it should be by voluntary and never compulsory contribution. We have Brigada Eskwela and rules, instructions and processes are in place,’ said Undersecretary of Finance Annalyn Sevilla earlier.
As of Monday, DepEd said it had printed over 667 million learning modules from its regional offices. Nearly 80 percent was published.
