The Department of Education of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DepEd-ARMM) has hired 765 new public school teachers for Maguindanao province.

DepEd Regional Secretary Atty. RasolMitmug Jr., said successful teaching applicants, numbering 435 newly hired teachers for the first district of Maguindanao, signed their appointment and deployment orders last Monday July 2, during an acceptance and mass oath-taking ceremony held in Maguindanao.

A similar  activity was also held  for the  330 teachers for Maguindanao’s second district who also  signed their appointment and deployment orders on the same date during an acceptance and mass oath-taking ceremony held  in Maguindanao.

The mass signing was attended by ARMM  officials  including DepEd-ARMM officials.

Sec. Mitmugsaid  the hiring of new teachers is part of DepEd-ARMM’s mission to provide quality education for Bangsamoro children.

According to Mitmugthe  teachers were hired after they passed a strict hiring process that includes Assessment and Competency Examination for Teachers in ARMM, an interview and a teaching demonstration.

Sec. Mitmug previously announced that DepEd-ARMM is currently preparing the deployment orders of 2,458 teachers for the entire region, which ARMM officials hope would be accomplished as soon as possible. (Ely Dumaboc)
