The Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion (DepEd) has time and again un­der­scored the im­por­tance of the Re­sults-Based Per­for­mance Man­age­ment Sys­tem (RPMS) that is aligned with the Philip­pine Pro­fes­sional Stan­dards for Teach­ers (PPST) in en­sur­ing the de­liv­ery of qual­ity, ac­ces­si­ble, rel­e­vant, and lib­er­at­ing ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion in the coun­try.

Let’s re­fresh our mem­o­ries on what RPMS is. As stip­u­lated in DepEd Or­der No. 2, s. 2015 (Guide­lines on the Es­tab­lish­ment and Im­ple­men­ta­tion of RPMS in DepEd), RPMS is a sys­temic mech­a­nism to man­age, mon­i­tor and mea­sure per­for­mance, and iden­tify hu­man re­source and or­ga­ni­za­tional de­vel­op­ment needs to en­able con­tin­u­ous work im­prove­ment and in­di­vid­ual growth.

It is be­ing im­ple­mented in con­so­nance with the Civil Ser­vice Com­mis­sion’s (CSC) Strate­gic Per­for­mance Man­age­ment Sys­tem (SPMS), fol­low­ing the SPMS four-phase cy­cle pre­scribed in CSC Mem­o­ran­dum Cir­cu­lar No. 6, s. 2012 and aims to en­sure that both teach­ing and non-teach­ing per­son­nel fo­cus work ef­forts to­ward achiev­ing the Depart­ment’s vi­sion, mis­sion, val­ues, and strate­gic pri­or­i­ties.

Fur­ther­more, the changes in­tro­duced by var­i­ous na­tional and global frame­works such as the K to 12 law, ASEAN in­te­gra­tion, glob­al­iza­tion, and other chang­ing char­ac­ter of the 21st cen­tury learn­ers ne­ces­si­tate the im­prove­ments and call for the re­think­ing of the Na­tional Com­pe­tency-Based Teacher Stan­dards (NCBTS) which re­sulted in the de­vel­op­ment of the PPST. This is en­closed in the DepEd Or­der No. 42, s. 2017, oth­er­wise known as Na­tional Adop­tion and Im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Philip­pine Pro­fes­sional Stan­dards for Teach er s.

Over 10,000 pre- and in-ser­vice teach­ers, prin­ci­pals, su­per­vi­sors, re­gional direc­tors and ed­u­ca­tors, and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from gov­ern­ment agen­cies and non-gov­ern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions were con­sulted and in­volved in the de­vel­op­ment and val­i­da­tion of the PPST.

The PPST out­lines the re­quired skills and com­pe­ten­cies of qual­ity teach­ers, en­abling them to cope with the emerg­ing global frame­works. If the re­quired skills and com­pe­ten­cies are not met, var­i­ous pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment in­ter­ven­tions will be given to them. PPST helps as­sure par­ents and guardians that their chil­dren re­ceive qual­ity ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion from qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als whose com­pe­ten­cies are abreast with changes and ad­vance­ments in the in­for­ma­tion age.
