Teachers to receive allowance for internet connectivity this June

Undersecretary Annalyn M. Sevilla, during the Viber Group Press Conference on May 28, when asked where will teachers get internet or mobile data fund for the remote enrollment, said teachers will be receiving their cash allowance this June amounting to P3, 500.

The allowance will be used by classroom teachers to purchase teaching supplies and materials for the upcoming school year, according to a department memorandum dated May 4 and signed by Undersecretary for Finance Annalyn Sevilla.

Sevilla said that teachers can use the allowance for internet connectivity or mobile data for them to contact their students during the remote enrollment in preparations to shift to the Learning Continuity Plan (LCP).
