The DepEd uniforms to be worn on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in the central, regional and division levels, and schools are also stipulated in DepEd Memorandum No. 497, s. 2010.

The clothing and uniform allowance shall be released in cash in the amount of Four Thousand Pesos (Php 4,000.00) to each of the DepEd teachers and non-teaching employees. DepEd offices are expressly prohibited from withholding any amount as payment for uniforms and/ or fabrics and other uniform materials and fee for services of a tailor/dressmaker. The responsible finance personnel shall coordinate with the payroll processing units to credit the full amount of the clothing and uniform allowance to the payroll accounts of DepEd teachers and non-teaching employees.

With this, the DepEd teaching and non-teaching employees from the regional, division and district offices, and public elementary and secondary schools may procure and obtain the uniform textile materials from any available source, provided that these comply with the prescribed DepEd uniform materials and design. Any DepEd official fund violating this rule will be subjected to appropriate sanctions and disciplinary action. Please send to this Office a written report of any DepEd official who compel or coerce teachers and non-teaching employees to procure the uniform materials from said official or from a specific source.

Teachers' cooperatives and associations are encouraged to offer the prescribed DepEd uniform materials to the teachers and and non-teaching personnel at the best price possible.

The following personnel are exempted from wearing the prescribed uniform:
  • School officials who occupy third level positions embraced by the Career Executive Service (CES);
  • Medical and dental staff who shall wear the appropriate medical/dental attire;
  • Janitors, utility, and maintenance personnel who shall be assigned appropriate uniforms;
  • Legal officers, specifically lawyers, whose nature of work requires a different dress code;
  • Teachers and employees with physical disabilities and other legitimate health reasons;
  • Pregnant female employees are allowed to wear maternity dresses during the period of their pregnancy; and
  • Teaching and non-teaching staff who are in mourning are allowed to wear appropriate mourning clothes.
Teaching and non-teaching personnel are allowed to make adjustments in the prescribed DeEd uniform to conform to the requirements of their religious affiliation or creed or any legitimate practice related thereto.

The effectivity of wearing the prescribed uniforms shall be on the first day of School Year 2011-2012.

DepEd also wishes to inform all concerned that it has not endorsed, accredited nor authorized any particular supplier to approach the regional and division offices and declare himself/herself as the exclusive distributor of the textile materials for the DepEd uniforms. Please report to DepEd any uniform who visits DepEd Offices and uses the name of the undersigned or of any official in the Central Office or of the NUC in trying to get a deal for the supply of the DepEd uniform.

Non-compliance to and deliberate defiance of this Order shall be dealt with administratively pursuant to Section 22.C (Violation of Reasonable Office Rules and Regulations), Rule XIV, Revised Ombudsman Rules Implementing Book V of the Administrative Code of 1987 (Executive Order No. 292).

i just want to ask if okay to post the other design of teachers uniform. tanx

Lady Teacher   (05 June 2012 8:11 PM)
totoo.. yung yellow uniform namin ay mainit na parang goma o cellophane na bumabalot sa katawan namin.. kawawa naman kami nandito sa classroom na di naka aircon,, 60 students packed in a small square... at saka, sana iba style, color ang uniform sa high school tchrs. kawawa na man yung mga bata na sawa na mga kulay namin mula elem hanggang high school..

sa dami ba namin baka pwde magpa made to order na tela na maganda.

May I suggest that the cloth for the teachers' uniform will be suitable for the work place. The cloth is very hot plus it is not very suitable to be worn on such a hot classroom of 60 pupils. The material for the uniform is not gentle to the touch..It has to be something that is relaxing in color and cool to the touch of our body... please take our uniforms seriously..

pwede po ba gandahan naman ung design at tela ng mga uniform ginagawa na kaming basahan sa itsura ung mukhang kagalang galang naman at kumportable sa katawan.

giordano salazar   (14 May 2012 2:14 PM)
hindi nman gyang gya ung nsa mannequin, my mail p rin

new teacher   (11 May 2012 6:57 AM)
I hope the new designs for the female uniforms will be a bit trendy but conservative. We want to be comfortable when teaching and as we all know, it is usually hot in our classrooms so quite thin fabric should be used. I hope deped will give the teachers chances to give or suggest new designs for the next school year's uniforms. The colors should be pastel or lighter so we would feel cooler. Thank you for considering my suggestions.

Mga kaguro, maitanong ko lang kung magkano bili ninyo sa tela ng uniform ninyo? Dito kasi sa amin sa Nueva Ecija ay 550-600 pesos tela lang. Division Office ang nagsusupply sa amin.
