A total of 61 employees of the Division of Southern Leyte took their Oath of Office as newly promoted Principal 4/3/2, MT3/2/1.
The swearing-in ceremony was administered by Schools Division Superintendent, Dr. Pedro T. Escobarte, Jr., CESO V.
In his message, Dr. Escobarte congratulated the promotees and encouraged them to pay it forward. “You are promoted because you went through the proper screening, you met the qualification standards. Promotion is not a right. It is a privilege. As the appointing officer, I intend to promote only those who really deserve it. That is why background check about the person for promotion is sought. We may ask your peers, your superiors, your subordinates, the community about you and your performance in the school. The appointing authority has the wide latitude of discretion that he can use to ensure that only those who are performing well and are dedicated to the job shall be promoted”, said the Dr. Escobarte.
The Superintendent further reminded the promotees to help those behind them get promoted, to use their promotion for the school and learners, not to use their authority and power to hurt other people or cause trouble.
