The Department of Education has nearly completed the delivery of procured sim cards with connectivity load to field DepEd offices as part of the government’s assistance for teachers and education frontliners under the Bayanihan 2 Act.
“We are already 96 percent in terms of delivering additional communication allowance for our teachers and personnel. This is a welcome development as we continue our preparations in ensuring learning continuity for the upcoming school year,” Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said.
Based on the issued memorandum, beginning on July 1, permanent, contractual, and local government unit-paid personnel working under DepEd schools and offices are eligible to receive sim cards.
According to report 222 out of 230 regional offices (RO) and division offices (DO) have received sim cards for their personnel. Supplies for Dinagat Island (Caraga), Manila (NCR), Batanes (Region II), Lanao del Norte (Region X), and DepEd Region XII Office are all in transit.
Teaching and non-teaching personnel must fill out the Online Registration Form at https://depedconnect.com.ph before picking up the sim card. This will also ensure that the sim card will be allocated with another load for the second month.
