Steps on Preparing the RPMS-PPST Portfolio for Highly Proficient Teachers
This is the time of the year in which teachers should already be busy preparing the Year-end Review and Evaluation Phase of RPMS (Result-Based Performance Management System). However, due to the issue of Covid19, the submission of the IPCRF has been postponed.
For those who are just starting to work in public schools, the acronym IPCRF which was mentioned above stands for Individual Performance Commitment Review Form. It is an assessment tool to rate the performance of government employees in the Philippines. The sole basis of IPCRF is the Means of Verification (MOVs) submitted based on the RPMS tools.
The RPMS tool is used to assess the teacher’s performance, one for Teacher I-III (Proficient Teachers) and another for Master Teacher I-IV (Highly Proficient Teachers). For Teacher 1-III who are identified as Proficient Teachers, they are required to meet the thirteen (13) objectives in which necessary means of verifications must be submitted. The classroom observation tools are the main documents for the MOVs on the RPMS. These classroom observation tools (COT) are the MOVs to achieve the following objectives in the RPMS : objective 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10.
Objective number 6, can only be seen on the third (3rd) and fourth (4th) classroom observation.
On the other hand, objective number nine (9) can only be seen once and is executed on the second (2nd) classroom observation. Meanwhile, objective number 10 (10) can also be seen once and is executed on the fourth (4th) classroom observation.
Objective numbers 8, 11, 12, and 13 are non-classroom observable.
For objective number eleven (11), the MOV’s must be distributed among all the four (4) quarters.
For objective number twelve (12), the MOV’s must also be distributed among all the four (4) quarters within the school year.
For objective number thirteen (13), the teacher should submit four (4) different suggested MOVs.
In order to avoid stress, it is recommended that from the start of the school year, teachers should have their RPMS PPST portfolio ready so that they can attach all the necessary MOVs when required.
