vacation, as authorized by proper authority, or services done beyond the regular functions or beyond regular work hours/days where payment of honorarium is not possible in the course of the regular school year.
Aside from vacation service credits, unique to the teachers is the Proportional Vacation Pay (PVP). The total PVP that shall be earned by teachers will be based on the computation to be provided by DepEd every school year.
Other leave benefits of teachers, such as Study Leave and Indefinite Sick Leave are covered by Sections 24 and 25 of Republic Act 4670, or the Magna Carta for Public School Teachers. -o0oThis Corner hopes that with these clarifications, teachers and school heads shall be able to tell other DepEd personnel who have not read this column.
