DepEd issues guidelines on six-hour 
teaching work for teachers 
Teachers can now claim overtime pay 

The Department of Education has released guidelines on the reduced 
classroom hours of teachers giving flesh to the Civil Service Commission ruling 
that allow teachers 6 hours of actual classroom teaching instead of the usual 8 

The SCS ruled that while teachers are not exempt from the eight-hour workday 
provided for in R.A. 1880, they are given at most 6 hours a day of actual 
teaching. The remaining two hours may be spent within or outside the school 
premises in teaching-related activities. 
Over and above the 6-hour classroom work, and the 8-hour workday, a teacher 
can now charge overtime.    
The guidelines were finalized by DepEd in consultation with principals and 
According to Education Secretary Jesli Lapus the proposed guidelines are in 
sync with Section 13 of Republic Act 4670 otherwise known as the Magna Carta 
for Public School Teachers.  

“After 42 years, DepEd will now implement the 6-hour actual teaching load a day 
for our teachers as provided for in the Magna Carta. The move of the DepEd 
and CSC will allow our public school teachers to have more time to innovate and 
enhance classroom teaching,” Lapus said.  
Based on DepEd Memorandum 291 s. 2008, public school teachers shall render 
at most six hours of actual classroom teaching a day except when undertaking 
academic activities that require presence outside the school premises such as 
educational trips. 
School heads, the memo said, shall assign teaching  loads to public school 
teachers to fully utilize the 6-hour actual classroom teaching, i.e., six teaching 
loads at one hour per teaching load with due regard for possible teaching 
intervals. The memo further stated that all advisorship and/or special 
assignments for the entire school year combined shall be considered as one 
teaching load.  

A teacher with less than 6 hours of actual classroom teaching shall render 
additional hours of teacher-related activities and  duties to complete the six 

The two hours of teaching-related work within or outside the school premises to 
comply with the 8-hour workday include preparation  of lesson plans, action 
plans, instructional materials, evaluation/assessment of rubrics, preparation and 
checking of exercises, recording of academic performance and classroom 
accomplishments, conduct of research, attendance to seminars, workshops and 
similar programs, counseling, mentoring, coaching of students including home 

Also considered as teaching related activities are  consultation with parents, 
performance of coordination activities and recognized community social 
services; and participation in the improvement and  maintenance of school 

In the exigency of the service, a public school teacher may be required to render 
more than 6 hours of teaching and more than 8 hours of workday provided they 
are given additional compensation computed at the same hourly rate of the 
regular compensation, plus a premium of 25% of the  hourly rate for actual 
classroom teaching in excess of 6 hours and for work performed in excess of 8 

Overtime pay can only be claimed for actual teaching and /or work performed 
within the school premises. In the event of non-availability of funds, service 
credits shall be granted and a one-hour overtime work shall be counted as 1.25 
hours for purposes of determining the service credits.      
Lapus earlier appealed to the Civil Service Commission to release an 
appropriate interpretation of Section 13 of RA 4670. In reply, the CSC says that 
“there is nothing in the law which limits the hours of work of teachers to only six 
hours. What is limited to six hours is the actual classroom teaching of the 
 Lapus added that “having settled the issue on workload that favors the teachers 
is a landmark victory for our more than 480,000 - strong teaching force
