The Department of Education (DepEd) issues the enclosed Supplemental
Guidelines on the Grant of Cash Allowance to Teachers in compliance with the
approved increase from Three Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (P3,500) to Five
Thousand Pesos (PS,000) per classroom teacher for every school year (SY) pursuant to
Special Provision (SP) No. 11 of the General Appropriations Act (GAA) for Fiscal Year
(FY) 2021, and as defined in I. Purpose, Section 2 of DepEd Order (DO) No. 010, s.
2020 titled Guidelines on the Grant of Cash Allowance to Teachers.

Pursuant to SP 11 of the GAA for FY 2021, the appropriated Cash Allowance
to Teachers this year shall cover the following:
a. annual medical and physical examination expense;
b. internet and other communication expenses; and

for the implementation or conduct of various modes of learning
delivery.

For teachers who are assigned with at least one teaching load within the
current SY and whose assumption or resumption to duty is beyond 30 days after the
official first day of school, the criteria for the pro-rated payment of the Cash Allowance
will be as follows:
Date of Assumption to Duty from the Date Percentage of Cash Allowance
of Opening of Classes {Calendar Days) to Teachers
a. Within the first 30 days                                     100%
b. After the first 30 days but not more than            80%
90 days
c. After 90 days but not more than 150 days          50%
d. After 150 days until the end of the SY               20%

The variables of the pro-rated amount will depend on the issuance of a DO on
school opening.
