The WTDIB, in the amount of PHP1,000, shall be given to each entitled public school teacher not earlier than October 5.

c. Those who are found guilty of any offense in connection with their work from September 30, 2018 to September 30, 2019; and
d. Those who will be hired after September 30, 2019.

The grant of the WTDIB is part of DepEd’s commitment to continuously seek, develop, and implement ways to improve the welfare of its personnel, especially teachers, for their invaluable work and dedication to the profession.

This effort is pursuant to DepEd Order 26, series 2019, or the “Guidelines on the Grant of World Teachers’ Day Incentive Benefit”. PNA-
