Good day. I was appointed SHS Teacher II dated June 1, 2016 under the TVL ICT Strand. During the hiring process i was able to submit requirements according to the position but was disapproved July 2019 due to lack of TMC I. On that note, I was unable to submit TMC I Certificate since I am on the process of TMC I Assessment in TESDA. Before the submission of my documents by our HRD to CSC Iba, Zambales I was able to submit the TMC I Certificate to our SDO but unfortunately it was not included upon the submission of my requirements to CSC. Because of that I was notified by SDO for termination of service effective immediately dated July 30, 2017. I did write a complain and request for a re-evaluation of my documents to our Superintendent and also inquire to CSC Iba, Zambales for reconsideration. After 2 weeks of processing, I was able to return to service dated August 23, 2017. On this matter, I was unable to be included in step increment due to disapproved appointment. I am an Outstanding Teacher for 3 consecutive years. Am I allowed to apply for a Step Increment due to meritorious performance? or Length of Service?

Thank you for your response.
