Hi Joe,

The advisory enables the field people to choose which among the non-DepEd seminars could address the training needs of their staff this year. For funding purposes, they could cite DepEd Order 74 when they prepare the local Memo for those staff who have identified MLE as the priority need. This is to complement the DepEd CO training on MTB MLE. The management will soon issue a DepEd Order that seminars, trainings, etc., offered should be accredited by HEIs in their masteral or doctoral courses as announced by the secretary when he met with associations, institutions that offer seminars, trainings, last year. God bless.


Thank you, Usec. Quijano, for your prompt response to our May 25th email to mle philippines<>; <>; <>; Talaytayan<>, to wit:

I’ve posted DepEd Advisory No. 241 issued May 25, 2011 announcing a series of national seminars on Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education on various dates and venues. Please read the first comment I posted and let me know if you agree with me on the issue of each prospective participant having to pay the registration fee of PhP2,000.00 even as paragraph 5c of DepEd Order No. 74 s. 2009 provides:
“The utilization of Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE), school board funds, and other education improvement funds is hereby authorized for the planning and implementation of MLE programs in the following sequence of priority: (1) advocacy work and community mobilization; (2) development of a working orthography of the local language; (3) MLE orientation and teachers training; (4) developing, printing and distributing teachers’/facilitators’ guides; (5) reading materials and other instructional materials; (6) development of assessment tools; and (7) evaluation and monitoring of learning outcomes.”
