The TXs and TMs are to be financed from the General Appropriations Act (GAA) lumpsum amount for textbooks and intructional materials. Likewise, it is the policy of DepEd to procure TXs and TMs on a centralized basis to avail of economies of scale. The provision of TXs and TMs will allow DepEd to achieve the 1:1 Textbook to Pupil Ratio (TXPr) and shall ensure that the TXPr in all public schools shall remain at desirable levels (1:1) for core subjects and (1:2) for non-core subjects, throughout the five (5) years life span of the TXs and TMs.
The indicative regional allocations of TXs and TMs to be provided to public schools is contained in the enclosure.
All matters pertaining to textbook planning, content review and evaluation, technical standard setting, procurement and allocation, and implementation of the National Textbook Delivery Program (Textbook Count), Textbook Walk Program, Textbook Audit, among others, shall be coordinated with the Instructional Materials Council Secretariat (IMCS).
The condemnation and disposal of the TXs and TMs should be coordinated with the division offices (DOs) through the Disposal Committee. The replacement of damaged or lost TXs should be coordinated with the IMCS if the buffer stocks from the division offices have been depleted.
