a. CASE NARRATIVE

Teacher Jose (not his real name) has been in the teaching profession for 3

years. He’s handling Kindergarten in a multi-grade school in seaside district here in the

3rd Congressional district in Quezon. Since their head teacher handles two schools at

the same time, she (the head teacher) mostly stays in her first designated school, which

was the other school. Since July this year, the DepEd Division of Quezon already

implemented the biometric system called Quezon Personnel Attendance Management

System which aims to monitor the daily attendance of all the personnel in the

department. Apparently, the school where Teacher Jose is designate, follows the said

Division Memorandum, they implemented the Biometric System instead of the former

system of submitting Daily Time Record or DTR. In addition to that, the District

Supervisor issued a District Memorandum wherein no personnel shall take his/her

absence during Mondays or Fridays, if they do so, they should submit Form 6 or the

official application for leave and wait for it to be approve by immediate supervisor. Aside

from being a teacher, we all plays special role in our family, in times of family matters,

we can’t neglect and turn away from it. There is this one circumstance when Teacher

Jose has to attend a family matter during class hours and leave his pupils. Since its

urgent matter, he just informed her head teacher through text message about his

situation and his head teacher also confirmed her approval on the matter.

b. ISSUE/ PROBLEM

Teacher Jose takes his absence for two consecutive days and thought that

since he informed his head teacher about his family situation will be considerate about it

and won’t formally take it as absence. Since they’ve been implementing the biometric

system, there has been no log time for the date he was absent. During their staff

meeting, he opened up the topic about his absence and his head teacher assured him

that she will justify it and not note it as absent. But when their payslip came, he

confirmed that he was deducted of two days salary because of his absence. When he

asked his head teacher again, she said that it is considered as absence because there
is no log time in the biometric system. When they first talk about it, his head teacher

assured him of her consideration about that matter but when the payslip came, it proved

otherwise.

c. POLICIES, STANDARDS AND GUIDELINES VIOLATED OR HAVING CONFLICT


d. ALTERNATIVE COURSE OF ACTION

During those urgent situations on family matters, we may take into

consideration that since there have been a biometric system in the school, accomplish a

Form 6 or application of leave in advance so that when situation calls, it can be easily

use for uncalled absences but make sure that you have service credits that you can

use.

e. RECOMMENDATION

As professionals, we have sets of standards and rules that we follow which

helps us do our job accordingly. We have to take actions with accordance to what rules

and regulations we have. We should also take into consideration that we have different

functions, may it be as a head teacher or a classroom teacher. We can’t avoid attending

to urgent situations especially if it concerns our family but we must consider our role as

teachers first. It is easier to judge and talk about someone when we don’t like what

they’ve done, more so if it the one who is supervising us. It is good to have good

relationship with our supervisors or head teachers, so that we can foster better

communication and understanding with everyone in our school. But we shouldn’t head

much of our expectations that our supervisors will be considerate all of the time. There

are areas or duties and function wherein we should be strictly in abidance and we must

understand that. We just have to hold our expectation of our supervisor to a level of

professionalism as they expect us also to function professionally, abiding by the rules

and standards set by the department we belong.
