DepEd adopts new uniform designs

THE Department of Education (DepEd) announced the adoption of the four new sets of DepEd national uniform designs for teaching and two new national uniform designs for non-teaching personnel starting the transition period of the School Year (SY) 2021-2022.

According to DepEd, SY 2021-2022 shall be considered a “transition period” to allow ample time for employees to prepare and purchase new set of prescribed uniforms.

To facilitate the transition period, employees can still wear their old uniforms this coming SY 2021-2022.

But starting SY 2022-2023, all teaching and non-teaching personnel shall wear the prescribed new set of uniforms.

The annual clothing and uniform allowance shall be released to all eligible personnel not earlier than the first working day of April of the current year.

This is subject to existing accounting and auditing rules and regulations, and upon the release of the Notice of Cash Allowance from DBM.
