Also in connection with the forthcoming elections, the Department of Education (DepEd) will establish a task force to assist public school teachers who will render election services as members of the Board of Election Inspectors (BEIs).

Education Secretary Armin Luistro, said in a memorandum that "the 2016 DepEd Election Task Force (ETF) will ensure that teachers will be provided with adequate information, technical, and legal assistance in the course of the performance of their duties as members of the BEIs."

According to Comelec Resolution No. 10031, the chairperson and members of the BEIs shall receive total allowances of P 4,500, which covers three days of work.
