Special Assignments include ancillary coordinatorship, special program coordinatorship, special program advisorship; and curriculum-related advisorship.

"In the exigencies of service and in the case of schools with small teacher population, a teacher may hold more than 1 special assignment, provided that: all (100%) of teachers have already given with a special assignment, the teacher fully accepts the additional assignment without any reservation; and and the teacher’s welfare is not, in any way, compromised." said memorandum.

Actually po, this provision is useless sa small schools. "not unless all teachers have already been given with special assignment" - panu kung six (6) teachers lang kayo sa school nyo then Special Assignments ay more or less 50 assignments, including academic and non-academic assignments/ designations like per subject area/ ancilliary service coordinator po.. Konteng math, di kaya ang provision na ito...
