To all Teaching, Teaching-related, and Non-teaching personnel of DepEd Southern Leyte Division
Please read this message from USec Alain del Pascua:
Given the success of the pilot phase, Workplace may now be adopted as official communication platform of the Department. As such, all permanent employees shall be given a Workplace account while consultants and personnel under Contract of Service (CoS) may be assigned their respective accounts upon the request of their immediate heads of unit and subject to the discretion and approval of the system administrators. A Workplace account will also be created for each Regional Office, Schools Division Office, and School to ensure that there is a permanent account where communications can be sent even if the heads of these offices are transferred.
Workplace has a facility which allows any registered user to create Workplace Groups where members can collaborate, post announcements, and share documents. To maximize the benefits of this feature, Groups shall be created for the Central, Regional and Division Offices. A Group shall also be created for each School which will be used to post pictures of events such as graduation ceremonies, delivery of equipment, disasters, and others. This will allow the Department to have a historical documentation of events that have occurred in each school that can be referred to anytime that it is needed. Organizers of Training Programs are also encouraged to create their own Workplace Group where training materials can be uploaded and easily accessed by participants for future reference.
Regional Directors, Schools Division Superintendents, Division Chiefs and School Heads are enjoined to start using Workplace as the official communication platform, and avoid the use of Facebook Messenger, Viber, WhatsApp, and other platforms.
The DepEd Workplace account is a government service obtained for the interest of public service. As such, the acceptable use of these accounts shall follow the Guidelines on the Use of the DepEd Email Service issued in DepEd Memorandum No. 227, s. 2012. The Office of the Undersecretary for Administration (OUA) assures the privacy of any and all information provided by the users and will not be used in any other purpose outside the scope of the Department of Education (DepEd).
