COVER DESIGN RATIONALE

The resounding clamor for basic quality education moved


Digos City Schools Division to come up with viable programs
and projects. The ardent declaration of support to the goals of
the Duterte Administration in the field of education fueled each
and everyone in the division to perform their duties and
responsibilities in accordance to what is designed by law.
The vibrant red colors that evidently encompasses the
entirety of the cover is the voice of strength, power and
determination of key players to continue despite of the
unavoidable gaps encountered. Moreover, the passion, desire
and love in providing the deliverables to learners is an epitome
of a resolute servant.
Highlighted within the domain of triangles are few of the
many priority programs that are closely monitored as way of
ensuring the quality of services rendered which is believed to
be contributory to the holistic development of every learner in
the Division of Digos City.
The two-concrete buildings symbolize authority where the
source of command for change come from. As mandated, the
stature of the people behind these structures is essential in the
delivery of services for it is from these people where vision and
mission of the Department of Education shall be officially
ordered to be administered.
Connotatively, triangles display the sense of creativity and
strength where its shape manifest balance on the four elements
such as earth, air, water and fire. The Division Basic Education
Development Plan of Digos City covers all these elements where
the found spirit of stability and intellect are products of people's
collaborative work.
The color wheel shows the 17 sustainable development
goals where Education is emplaced in goal 4 is lifted by the spirit
of fire, where courage, strength and passion are visibly seen in
the desired outcomes of the Division Basic Education
Development Plan of Digos City. Thus, this development is a
good gauge on learner's experience in school.
The launching of the Division Basic Education
Development Plan (2018-2022) is the turning point for an
orderly and well-guided implementation of programs, projects
and activities that ensure a well-balanced quality basic
education.

DBEDP Executive Summary

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Division Education Plan is a tool towards achieving goals articulated in the "Ambisyon 2040", the long-term
strategy in fighting poverty. To fulfill these goals, the different program heads of the City Schools Division of Digos City
convened to plan, formulate, and articulate the various projects, programs and other deliverables as a response to
improve the quality, access, and governance of basic education.
Specifically, a Division Strategic Directions (2018-2022) has been formulated as vision of this five-year DBEDP.
By 2022, DepEd Digos City will be a highly competent, committed, empowered and compassionate
organization responsive to the challenges and opportunities in producing value-laden, patriotic, dynamic and globally
competent, lifelong learners through inclusive learner-centered learning environment and responsive contextualized
curriculum.
The City Schools Division of Digos City is a medium-sized division created on June 24, 2002 with three districts
elementary, the Occidental District, Oriental District, and Mt. Apo District. It is composed of 62 kindergarten schools,
51 elementary schools, 15 junior high schools (Grade 7-10), senior high schools (Grades 11-12), 1 senior high school
stand alone, and 8 senior high school under TESDA.
Considering the demographic characteristics of the city, the City Schools Division faces challenges in the delivery
of quality basic education relative to school needs, learner's achievement, and human and financial resources. To address
the challenging issues on learners and management performance, Digos City Division crafted the Division Basic
Education Development Plan 2018-2022 which presents key performance indicators that would help in the attainment
of the Division's goals.
The size of the division and proximity of schools to the Division office is an advantage when it comes to
monitoring and delivery of services. On the other hand, the anticipated increase of the population and the accessibility
of the city to neighboring municipalities offer an opportunity for growth. At present, Digos City Division offers complete
line of programs catering to the diverse needs of learners that give them a competitive advantage.
The strategic directions to achieve the 2022 Team Vision is guided by the following goals: to strengthen the
implementation of the Provision on Access to Basic Education to intensify quality and relevance, and to streamline
education, management, and governance. These will be manned and monitored by the Executive Team composed of
School Governance and Operations Division (SGOD) the Curriculum Implementation Division (CID), and the Office of
the Schools Division Superintendent (OSDS) respectively.
The success of the implementation of these planned programs largely depends on the financial support
extended by the government and other stakeholders to the Division. Additionally, the Division will establish programs
that would expedite the disposition and liquidation of the MOOE thereby maximizing the utilization of said funds.
The strategic directions will help improve the team vision through strict implementation and monitoring of the
various approaches of every goal. Each strand of strategic objective is a concrete measure designed to hit the aspiration
of the division. Hence, these strategic directions are carefully planned that it ensures all the directions are aligned to the
achieve team vision.
The end of plan targets is the materialization of the team vision, thus, a dedicated implementation of all the
identified measures are all set to be implemented. Regular and comprehensive evaluations of the programs in different
goal will be closely monitored to ensure that all the activities are properly conducted. This will help check the balance
between the implementation of the projects and the materialization of its desired objectives.
The measure of the achievement of this comprehensive Division Basic Education Development Plan is the
realizations of the team vision. This will be manifested in the organizational efficiency and in the standardization of the
service delivery that conforms to the global standards thereby producing competent learners with desirable life-long
learning skills.

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 3
DBEDP Rationale & Background

RATIONALE & BACKGROUND

Digos City is the capital of Davao del Sur province. It gained cityhood status on September 8, 2000. As the
provincial capital and the only city in Davao del Sur, it exudes the boom of urban development as it becomes the business
and commercial hub of the province.
Two years after Digos City was created as a component city of Davao del Sur, the Division of City Schools was
created on June 24, 2002 with only three districts namely: Digos Occidental district, Digos Oriental district, Mt. Apo
district and three secondary schools with Mr. Alfonso G. Gomez Jr., CESO V as the first Schools Division Superintendent.
It is a medium-sized schools division with only a small number of public (DepEd) elementary and secondary schools
under its supervision. The number of private elementary and secondary schools is even smaller.
Its populace consists of several ethnic groups with the majority being Cebuano comprising 86.52% of the total
population. The majority of the Indigenous Peoples (IP) on the other hand belong to the Bagobo Tribe comprising 2.09%
of city's total population (Digos City Comprehensive Land Use Plan, 2013).
The geography, topography, and the diverse cultural group had resulted to multiplicity of learners and to its
fast-economic growth which has become a challenge to the local government and most especially to DepEd Digos City
Division.
To address this challenge, a Division Basic Education Development Plan (DBEDP) was crafted in 2010-2015 to
set its target in identifying strategies that helped implementers of the different programs in setting their goals. It
embodied the collective effort of all stakeholders in addressing the gaps of both formal and non-formal education
system in the city. The performance outcomes of the previous curriculum served as basis for the implementation of the
K to 12 Program and the institutionalization of the kindergarten into the basic education system.
In 2016 to 2017, an Educational Development Plan was drafted and a series of consultation among stakeholders
was conducted to improve the delivery of intervention.
The current Division Basic Education Development Plan (DBEDP) 2017-2022 is the continued effort of the
Division to address the prevalent educational gaps and needs to fully implement the K to 12 Program anchored on a
framework dovetailed to the Central Office. It is focused on providing learners with better access to quality and relevant
basic education and improving the delivery of basic education services. This serves as the cornerstone upon which the
Division shall contribute to the fulfillment of Ambisyon Natin 2040- the long-term vision and aspirations of the Filipino
people for themselves and for the country in the next 25 years.

Performance Gaps
To address the challenging issues of students and management performance, Digos City Division had identified
specific indicators to check if targets are met for calendar year 2011-2017.
Net Enrolment Ratio (NER). The historic Net Enrolment Ratio (NER) for the junior and senior high school levels
from SY 2011-2012 to SY 2015-2016 is at 71.57%. This is 28.43% below the planning standard of 100%.
Cohort Survival. The cohort survival rate for the junior and senior high school levels from SY 2011-2012 to
SY 2016-2017 on an average is at 75.25%, 7.75% deficient from the target of 83%.
Dropout Rate. Dropout rate for the junior and senior high school levels from SY 2011-2012 to SY 2016-2017
is on downtrend with an average of 1.02%. Considering the population of the grades 7-12 learners in the Division, this
figure is relatively high compared to the planning standard of 0%.
Graduation Rate. The past six school years, from SY 2011-2012 to SY 2016-2017, showed a marked decrease
of graduation rate for grade 10. In SY 2014-2015 to SY 2015-2016, the graduation rate is at an average of 98.01%,
however, in SY 2016-2017, a significant drop of the indicator was observed were graduation rate is only at 92.85%
which is a decrease of 5.16% compared to the past two years and 7.15% deficient from the planning standard of
100%.
Promotion Rate & Repetition Rate. Similar to the Graduation Rate, the Promotion Rate of grades 7-12 has
experienced a sudden drop in SY 2016-2017 at only 88.12%, 6.46% difference from the previous school year. The
marked decrease of the Promotion Rate is complemented with the marked increase in the Repetition Rate for the same
grade levels which increased by 4.5% from 1.42% in SY 2015-2016 to 5.92% in SY 2016-2017.
Transition Rate. The transition rate at the elementary level from SY 2011-2012 to SY 2016-2017 is on the
average at 97.23% indicating that approximately 2.77% of learners from grade 4 progress to grade 5.
Quality and Relevance. The FLEMMS 2013 report shows that on the average, Davao Region’s performance
in all measured indicators is at the bottom 25%. The Division’s performance in the National Achievement Test (NAT) for
the secondary level is also low at 49.55% for SY 2014-2015 which is only half of the target of 84.99%. In terms of
nutritional status of learners, a survey in 2017 showed that 16% or approximately one in every five leaners do not have
normal weight.
Governance and Management. The utilization rate for the funds allocated to the schools and the SDO from
CY 2015 to CY 2017 is at an average of 91%. Contributory to this figure is the very low MOOE utilization of the
secondary public schools which was at 79% in CY 2016 and 76% in CY 2017.
This education development plan is intended to provide a comprehensive reference to the proposed
interventions in the Schools Division of Digos City as part of its effort to fill the education gaps and provide for the need
of quality education to its learners.

STRATEGIC DIRECTIONS

Strategic Goals
It has long been recognized by many educators and parents that education in addition to its immediate benefits,
is a form of investment in building peoples' capacity to be more productive and be able to enjoy a higher quality of life.
While human capital ideas focus on links among education, productivity, and economic growth, other disciplines have
emphasized additional reasons why providing basic access to education is important. These disciplines emphasize the
contribution of education in building social cohesion where it transmits values, beliefs and traditions, and shapes
attitudes, aspirations, and skills that include crucial inter- and intra-personal capabilities. It empowers people, freeing
them to learn and to think for themselves. In the rapidly changing world, life becomes complex, and these complexities
have pushed learners to come up with a realization of the importance of the real-life skills gained from quality education.
Thus, strategic plan plays an important role in improving students’ outcomes for this can be the foundation of the
division in achieving and ensuring that goals are attained. Likewise, the strategic plan serves as the guiding point on
how resources can be mobilized.

Figure 2. Division strategic directions for 2018-2022

Goal 1: Strengthen Implementation of the Provision on Access to Basic Education


“Every child has the right to access quality education.” This goal aims to bring all learners to schools as well as
bringing schools closer to the communities. This long-term commitment of DepEd Digos City Division stretches out in
ensuring that public learning institutions will be provided with educational facilities and resources. This will only be
realized through partnerships and linkages. Special Programs like the Indigenous Peoples Education Program (IPEd) for
the Indigenous Peoples communities, the Arabic Language and Islamic Values Education (ALIVE) for the Muslim learners,
Special Education (SPED) for children with special needs, Alternative Delivery Mode (ADM) for students at risk of
dropping-out, Multigrade Program for far-flung, isolated, and poor communities, and the Alternative Learning System
(ALS) for the out-of-school youth shall be intensified through monitoring and evaluation to help improve performance

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 7
DBEDP Strategic Directions

and to achieve results. To improve current and future management of outputs, outcomes and impact, Digos City Division
shall set its goal in assessing the performance of these programs and other local initiatives that were set-up and
implemented by the schools and by the division. The act of setting is for the division to ensure that quality education
shall be delivered to the marginalized and disadvantaged groups.

Objective 1.1. Intensify the implementation of Inclusion Programs and other Learner Support
Programs
1.1.1. BEADS (Bringing Education At Their Door Step). This is a program that supports Digos City Division's
strong conviction that learners come first and that they should all be in school. It is in line with the Philippine Education
for All (EFA) 2015, which is a vision and holistic program of reforms that aim to improve access to quality of basic
education for every Filipino by 2015. Providing education to all Filipinos opened an alternative learning system to
complement formal schooling to reach and better serve those in difficult circumstances. This entails not only the effort
of the Department of Education but also the involvement of the entire society, including the national and local
government agencies and socio-civic organizations as providers of basic learning needs. To do this, it is necessary to
ensure that schools, both in the elementary and secondary are sufficient places available to offer real choices, good
access, and the best environment in which to learn. This is in keeping with the division’s statutory duty and strategic
priorities to develop additional school places in Digos City. This means ensuring that it has the best available schools
that offer the deliverables to all learners. As part of its strategic vision, junior high extension schools and annexes in
various years like the Digos City NHS - Balabag HS Annex, Soong HS Annex, Igpit HS Annex, Aplaya Extension, Dawis
NHS, and Goma NHS have been established. Similarly, in 2016, classes were opened at sitios Maguisi and Pangaguran,
barangay Soong and Tres de Mayo respectively for IP and non-IP learners who hardly have access to school in the
neighboring barangay schools. These are multigrade classes handled by IP teachers. Digos City considers putting up
makeshift classrooms for these two (2) sitio schools if and when establishment of these cannot be possible as of yet.
Additionally, the Division projects to accomplish the following:
1. Establishment of Aplaya Extension, Balabag HS Annex, Igpit HS Annex, and Soong HS Annex as
independent schools
2. Establishment of Matti Integrated School and Marawer Integrated School
3. Establishment of complete elementary schools for Maguisi and Pangaguran Primary Schools
4. Creation of one additional public schools district
5. Offering of Senior High School level in all existing Junior High Schools
For this effort, we will move for partnership, complemented by multi- stakeholders' linkages that will mobilize
and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the materialization of this goal in all
newly created schools. The division believes that the best way to meet this emerging demand is setting up of
independent schools, to keep up its efforts in accommodating all the learners and their diverse needs. It is expected that
in the next five years, it will have more details for impact to give to the locale where each of these schools is situated.
These schools will incorporate educational facilities to be made available to the school community following processes
and timelines. Hence, by establishing an effective elementary, independent Junior High School and Senior High School,
learners benefit from an education system suited for the 21st century, prepared for what they want to be after high
school, and are equipped with the relevant and meaningful knowledge and skills to pursue better lives for themselves,
their families, and communities.
1.1.2. Alternative Learning System (ALS). The Alternative Learning System (ALS) is a program that provides
access to basic education among out-of-school children, youth and adults. Being comparable to formal school
curriculum, ALS adheres to the program of study that reflects the set of knowledge skills and competencies that students
have to meet in order to complete basic education. The learning facilitators conduct classes in the Community Learning
Center according to the availability of the students. This is done in face-to-face, radio-based, eSkwela/computer-based
or through independent learning.
To effectively implement the ALS program, the division offers the following initiatives: Accreditation &
Equivalency Program (A&E), Basic Literacy Program (BLP), Informal Education (InfED), BalikPaaralan Para sa Out-of School
Adults (BP-OSA) Program, Barangay Operation and Livelihood Program (BOLD), and e-skwela Program.
1.1.3. TRIBU IPEd (Timely, Responsive, Integrative, Broad and Unified Indigenous Peoples' Education). The
Indigenous Peoples Program is DepEd's response to the right of IP communities to have an education that truly responds
to their context, respects their identities and promotes the value of their indigenous knowledge, skills, and other aspects
of their cultural heritage. Specifically, the IPEd Program aims to improve the appropriateness and responsiveness of the
curriculum: build the capacity of teachers, managers and concerned personnel; support the development of culturally-
appropriate learning resources and learning environment and strengthen the policy environment supportive of IPEd. It
is likewise intended to address the learning needs of IP learners who lack access to basic education services.

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 8
DBEDP Strategic Directions

The program shall support the realization of the K to 12 Curriculum, which subscribes to the following standards
and principles such as inclusive, culture-sensitive, and flexible enough to enable and allow schools to localize, indigenize,
and enhance the community's educational and social context.
It is within this premise that DepEd Digos City Division conceives the program aptly named TRIBU which stands
for Timely, Responsive, Integrative, Broad and Unified Indigenous Peoples Education that is considered an effective
program in attracting indigenous youth back to schools. This allows members of indigenous communities, particularly
the IP learners to be in school and receive a program of contextualized instruction that is consistent with the Indigenous
Knowledge Systems and Practices of their group.
1.1.4. Madrasah Education Program (MEP). The Madrasah Education Program (MEP) specifically, in the area of
Arabic Language and Islamic Values Education (ALIVE) Program aims to intensify the implementation of teaching
desirable Islamic values and the skills of speaking, reading and writing in Arabic language in school with Muslin learners.
This also provides learners with equal access to educational opportunities while recognizing their cultural context and
unique purposes for participating in the program offerings.
ALIVE classes for Grades 1 to 6 consist of two component subjects, namely: Arabic Language and Islamic Values
Education which is in addition to the regular subject in the K to 12 Curriculum. Arabic Language is taught thrice a week
for 40 minutes per session; while Islamic Values Education is taught twice a week for 40 minutes per session. The
component of Arabic Language aims to develop the learners' functional literacy in Arabic that will enable them to read
and understand the Holy Qur'an. The Islamic Values component, on the other hand, aims to help learners acquire the
desired Islamic values, thereby making them agents in advocating and promoting brotherhood, peace, unity, justice and
equality. Learners are given grades, which will be reflected in their report cards, based on the assessment of their
progress and achievement.
1.1.5. Special Education (SPED). The Special Education (SPED) program aims to provide essential educational
intervention to learners with exceptionalities by ensuring that they have access to quality education by providing their
individual and unique learning needs.
This initiative caters to learners with visual impairment, hearing impairment, intellectual disability, learning
disability, autism spectrum disorder, communication disorder, physical disability, emotional and behavioral disorder,
multiple disability with visual impairment, those who are orthopedically handicapped, or chronically ill, and those who
are gifted and talented.
1.1.6. Alternative Delivery Mode (ADM). The present formal education system is still challenged with various
socio-economic, geographic and demographic issues that prevent it from getting and keeping all school-aged children
in school. With this, the development and implementation of alternative modalities of basic education existed. This is
experienced by the sluggish increase in the participation rate in the past years. Apparent changes in the pattern of basic
learning needs that primarily challenged the conventional way of delivering education were also noted.
The ADM Program is a special program of the Department of education with the objective to help the
marginalized students/pupils and those at-risk- of dropping out. It has different modalities: Enhance Instructional
Management by Parents and Teachers (EMPACT), Modified In-School Off-School Approach (MIMOSA), Open High
School Program (OHSP) (e.g. Project EASE/Home Study Program/Blended Learning), Multigrade Instruction, and other
local initiatives/Home Study Program or Blended Learning.
DepEd Digos City offers Open High School Program (OHSP) for high school IP students in Barangay Binaton and
in Digos City NHS.
1.1.7. Multigrade Program. To adhere to the mandate of improving access to quality basic education, DepEd
Digos City implements Multigrade Program in Ranao ES, Maguisi Primary School and Pangaguran Primary School. These
schools are located at the far-flung areas of Digos City with isolated and poor communities. With the program's
implementation, 86 schoolchildren are given access to education. DepEd Digos City is working for the establishment of
complete elementary for Maguisi and Pangaguran Primary Schools.
1.1.8. Modified Work and Study Program (MWSP). The Modified Work and Study Program is formerly known
as the Sunday High School program initiated by DepEd Region XI. The purpose of which is to help the working students
to have easy access to quality, relevant, and liberating education. Similarly, it provides students the opportunities to
continue high school given their situation.
Similar to regular classes, the MWSP adopts the K to 12 curriculum specific to secondary education. Having
classes on Sunday, the program utilizes modules intended to deliver learning. The main goal of the program is to
promote all the enrolled students to their next grade levels.
1.1.9. Project HIMSOG (Health Initiatives using Multiple Strategies for Optimum Growth). The School Health
Unit covers all the coordinated causes of actions that are undertaken in schools to promote School Health and Nutrition
Program to promote optimum physical, mental, and social health of the school population. This is an integral part of
the school curriculum with several components such as Health and Nutrition Education; Health and Nutrition Services;

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 9
DBEDP Strategic Directions

Healthful School Living and School-Community Coordination for Health and Nutrition. All these shall be achieved
through the umbrella project aptly named "Project HIMSOG" that stands for Health Initiatives using Multiple Strategies
for Optimum Growth.
Digos City Division shall produce physically and mentally healthy learners through the provision of healthcare
programs that will promote resiliency amid sickness and healthy lifestyle, thereby improving their participation,
involvement, learning capabilities, and attendance in school.
Gulayan sa Paaralan (GPP). Gulayan sa Paaralan is a program of the Department of Education that supports
School Feeding Program for severely wasted school children. This is part of the government's hunger mitigation and
poverty alleviation program. Although a budget allocation is given to schools, it is important to consider that more food
could be served on the table with GPP products like fresh vegetables, fruits, and root crops. To sustain the program,
Digos City Division conducts an annual search for best garden implementers to 47 schools.
1.1.10. Child-Friendly School System (CFSS). The school is a significant personal and social environment in the
lives of its students. A child-friendly school ensures every child an environment that is physically safe, emotionally secure
and psychologically enabling. Teachers are the most important factor in creating an effective, inclusive classroom and
sound environment.
This division ensures the sustainability of its implementation through its quarterly monitoring and evaluation to
47 schools by ensuring a safe and enabling environment for effective learning to happen.
1.1.11. Eco-friendly Schools. This program supports and complies with RA No. 9512 also known as National
Environment Awareness and Education Act of 2008. This is to encourage schools and other academic institutions to
become more actively involved in environmental issues at practical and local level. This also helps develop skills and
understanding among students, faculty and school administrators in initiating active responses, increasing community
awareness and participation in addressing environmental issues and concerns like global warming and climate change.
To sustain the program and align itself with national mandates, the division of Digos City has been initiating
annual search for Most Sustainable Eco-friendly schools. Likewise, the division will revive the School Inside the Garden
(SIGa) Program.
Youth for Environment in Schools Organization (YES-O). The Youth for Environment in Schools Organization is
the only recognized co-curricular environmental club or organization in the schools and consolidates all other
environmental and ecological clubs or organizations in school with main and primary programs or projects for the
environment or ecology. With this, schools are encouraged to organize, support and cooperate in the establishment
and strengthening of the Youth for Environment in Schools (YES) Organization by preparing their YES-O Calendar of
Annual Proposed Activities (CAPA) for the school year at the start of classes and likewise submit their Accomplishment
Report and YES-O Monitoring and Evaluation Form at the end of the school year.

Objective 1.2. Expand and Strengthen Partnership Building and Linkages


1.2.1. PAIR (Partnership Acceleration for Increased Resources). The goals of expanding access to quality basic
education, partnership and linkages is an indispensable component. This is to ensure the delivery of a relevant, holistic
and contextualized education, there is a need to establish various partnerships and linkages in generating resources and
facilitating effective implementation of DepEd programs, projects, and activities. This program will be implemented
employing strategies from the Adopt a School Act of 1998 and includes the effective implementation of Brigada
Eskwela. The attainment of this objective will not materialize through the Department of Education's efforts alone but
with the help of stakeholders, education partners, and advocates.

Objective 1.3. Provide Educational Facilities to identified schools


Based on the National School Building Inventory (NSBI), there are identified schools within the Division that
need facilities in order to enhance teaching and learning. Among the needs are classrooms that require repair and
rehabilitation. These needs are transmitted to the Education Facilities Division of DepEd Central Office which are then
funded and implemented through the Department’s budget under the General Appropriations Act.
On the other hand, other needs which are also essential are comfort rooms, furniture, upgrading of
electrification, school site titling and repair and rehabilitation which are not covered by the GAA appropriations for the
next five years will be implemented thru strategic partnerships and linkages.
The Physical Facilities Unit shall employ the following strategies in order to fulfill its mandate: establish and
maintain close coordination with the implementing agency (DPWH) in the construction of school buildings; conduct
intensive monitoring of project implementation and delivery of school furniture; submit timely school buildings and
school furniture status reports; and conduct school mapping to optimize utilization of education facilities.

DBEDP Strategic Directions

Goal 2: Intensify Quality and Relevance


Schools Division of Digos City is committed towards realizing the mandate of quality education by making the
curriculum relevant and responsive to learners’ needs that capture general accountability to fully operationalize the
implementation of the K to 12 Basic Education Program. To realize this goal, the division needs to meet the demands
such as:
• increasing learners’ performance to ensure that the innate abilities of all learners are well cultivated to
raise their quality of life and empower them for lifelong learning;
• achieving teachers’ proficiency to provide meaningful classroom situations;
• enhancing school heads’ efficiency on school leadership and management to ensure quality service.

Objective 2.1. Fully operationalize the implementation of K to 12 Curriculum through "Project


Hulma“
Hulma is a Visayan term which means to mold. It is an initiative of Digos City Division to influence the quality
of teachers, school heads and learners in meeting the demands of the educational milieu across the world. It is a
mechanism that will train, develop and unfold the metacognition and other abilities of the teachers, school heads and
learners. More so, Project Hulma provides a systematic and efficient support system that allows teachers and school
heads to develop delivery and instruction, critical literacy, collaboration, communication, creativity, compassion, and
commitment. In like manner, this project produces learners who will manifest desirable values that are generally
acceptable to the standards set by society, who will embrace the essence of inclusive education where gender sensitivity,
tolerance and acceptance of different cultures for identity and nation-building are valued.
This project is accomplished through the following programs:
2.1.1. Special Programs. Special Programs are designed to make the curriculum relevant and meaningful for
the learners. As such, Digos City Division ensures the efficient implementation of the following programs:
Special Science Program (SSP) aims to develop scientific literacy among learners that will prepare them to be
informed and participative citizens who are able to make judgments and decisions regarding applications of scientific
knowledge that may have social, health, or environmental impacts.
Special Program in Sports (SPS) aims to address the needs of talented students in the different sports disciplines.
Special Program in the Arts (SPA) aims to address the needs of talented students in different Art disciplines and
to give talented students a chance to enhance their talents in different art fields.
Special Program for Foreign Language (SPFL) aims to enhance the ability of learners to engage in meaningful
interaction in a linguistically and culturally diverse global workplace. More importantly, the SPFL aims to further develop
learners' understanding and appreciation of other people's culture.
2.1.2. LAC Sessions. DepEd institutionalizes Learning Action Cell (LAC) per DepEd Order No. 35., s 2016.
Learning Action Cell is a group of teachers who engage in collaborative learning sessions to solve shared
challenges encountered in the school facilitated by the school head or a designated LAC Leader. LACs will become the
school-based communities of practice that are positive, caring, and safe spaces. It is an avenue for the teachers to revisit
their own practices, gather feedback on which area of concern that needs to be reinforced, and identify necessary
intervention needed to increase performance. It aims to develop and support successful teachers by improving and
nurturing their knowledge, attitudes and competencies, in terms of curriculum, instruction and assessment in their work
stations.
Although professional development programs (top-down) are existing in the department there are instances
that bottom up scheme is employed due to its effectiveness in developing the school staff because activities are based
on the needs that they have identified.
With this, Digos City Division heightens the implementation of LAC in every school or cluster schools. It is done
on a monthly basis for two hours per session or as the case may be. Individual and group action planning is integral in
LAC, therefore, overseeing the conduct of LAC is a must for Public Schools District Supervisors, Education Program
Supervisors and School Heads. Each EPS and PSDS are given schools for LAC coaching and monitoring.
2.1.3. Campus Journalism. The Division Campus Journalism Program essentially aims to uphold campus press
freedom while it promotes the advancement of journalism skills of the campus journalists. Likewise, it is an avenue to
strengthen ethical values while encouraging critical and creative thinking and developing moral character among the
students. It also provides the Campus Journalists opportunities to practice truth and fairness through writing advocacy-
based and balanced stories without sacrificing quality.

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 11
DBEDP Strategic Directions

To achieve its goal, the program provides Basic and Advanced Journalism Skills Training, Journalism Academy,
Essay Writing Contests, among other activities which all aim to instill the value of campus journalism and increase
number of winnings in the national level contest.
2.1.4. Project IMPACT - LR (Institutionalize the Management, Production, Access, Contextualization of
Teaching-Learning Resources). Project IMPACT-LR (Institutionalize the Management, Production, Access and
Contextualization of Teaching-Learning Resources) is an initiative of the Learning Resources Management and
Development Center which provides the mechanisms to support coordinated, integrated and increased distribution of
and access to quality learning, teaching and professional-development resources. It primarily aims to strengthen Learning
Resource development and distribution; improve the instructional and learning materials; digitize available student
learning materials; and enhance provisions of quality instructional and learning materials. Considered as blood of the
Curriculum, Digos City Division ensures that LRs will be contextualized to suit the diverse background of learners
particularly their educational and social contexts, and utilize quality-assured learning resources with integration of
financial literacy, gender and development, DRRM, eco-friendly and child-friendly practices. Above all, Project IMPACT-
LR moves to capacitate teachers in terms of the technical knowledge on development, contextualization, integration,
quality-assurance processes, and the management of the School Libraries and/or the School Learning Resource Centers
in order to attain learning standards and provision of relevant learning resources.

Objective 2.2. Improve Learners' Performance through "Project Lambu"


Lambu is a Visayan term for progress. DepEd Digos City Division commits to live to the ideals of ensuring that
all learners advance holistically making them imbued with sound emotional and intellectual capacities. Being committed
to produce learners who are equipped with essential life-skill, this Division conceived Project Lambu with the primary
objective of producing the desired results of the K to 12 curriculum. Through the project, DepEd Digos City Division
ensures that the innate abilities of all learners are well-cultivated in order to raise their quality of life and empower them
for life-long learning ready for employment, entrepreneurship, middle-level skills, and higher education upon graduation
making them ready to navigate their world.
The project envisions to fully accomplish the goal through the following activities:
2.2.1. TREKKERS (The Reading Experts Kicking to Knock-off and Eliminate Reading Shackles). The Division
Reading Program, dubbed as TREKKERS (The Reading Experts Kicking to Knock-off and Eliminate Reading Shackles)is
established to amplify the implementation of Every Child a Reader Program (ECARP). Its main objective is to leave a trace
of zero non-readers across all grade levels and in all schools in the Division. Its salient features include Assessment,
Unified Implementation, Remediation, Enrichment, Teachers' Development, Material Development, Partnership, and
Monitoring and Evaluation.
2.2.2. Project EAGLE (Elimination of Academic Gaps for Learners in the Elementary). Project EAGLE is a regional
initiative that is conceptualized as an intervention to increase learning outcomes of the learners in all learning areas. In
DepEd Digos City, this project is piloted in Digos City Central Elementary School and Binaton Elementary School.
Considering that the essential skills embedded in the K to 12 Curriculum are to be explicitly taught in levels K
to 3 and Grades 4 to 6, the looping mechanism is ventured to increase mastery of learner's skills. Thus, this project
allows learners to meet high expectations, content and performance standards, and able to achieve the diverse
challenges of the 21st century skills. It also intends to achieve proximate current benchmarks and standards in the
national assessments in all key stages such as Early Language Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (ELLNA), National
Achievement Test (NAT) for Grades 6, 10 and 12. Additionally, Digos City Division envisions to expand Project EAGLE
initiative to other schools in the Division.
2.2.3. Unified Assessment. As an integral part of instruction, assessment result is essentially a manifestation of
how students demonstrate their understanding of the competencies which is critical to the learning process. Through
assessment, the educational goals, content standards, and performance standards of the lessons are determined.
With the aim to set standards of learning outcomes among the students, Digos City Division initiated Unified
Division Assessment. This mechanism allows teachers and the Office to design relevant trainings to improve pedagogical
competence of teachers and increase student outcomes.
Ultimately, the Unified Division Assessment guarantees that the students are assessed utilizing a well-designed
assessment tool that truly measures their progress, which is an essential basis in engaging them in meaningful learning.

Objective 2.3. Enhance teachers' knowledge, skills and attitude (KSA) through "Project Himamat"
Himamat is a Visayan term which means "visit" or "converge". Seeing its importance as a strategy in improving
the delivery of Basic Education Curriculum, Project Himamat comes to existence. It is an initiative of Digos City Division
to monitor and establish intimate connection with the school personnel in the implementation of the different thrusts

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 12
DBEDP Strategic Directions

and programs of the department. It is a way of learning from them their best practices. Furthermore, it is a way of
gathering feedback on different processes through direct observations to identify strengths and weaknesses, so that
appropriate input and interventions will be taken. This project is attained through the following programs:
2.3.1. Clinical Supervision is a process that enhances growth and increases skills in a given profession, while
building a trusting and professional relationship between a mentor and a mentee. It is designed to improve performance.
It has three phases such as: pre-observation conference, observation, feedback or post conference. It is focused on the
concept of self-analysis, openness to change, willingness to accept assistance, and self-direction. Digos City Division is
adapting clinical supervision in providing technical assistance to the schools. School Heads coach the teachers by
conducting process observation on the way they deliver lessons. Supervisors, on the other hand, coach the school heads
on the process of classroom observation. Supervisors have respective school assignments to oversee. Results of the
observation are used for possible career plans or future directions.
2.3.2. Magtanong sa Division is an initiative to reach out to the employees. It seeks to provide teachers and
employees accurate information and status of the different programs of the department. This is done through visiting
the schools or district offices by the division personnel headed by the Schools Division Superintendent. Queries and
concerns related to the operations of the school, GSIS, CSC and others, are addressed during the scheduled
district/school meeting.
2.3.3. Catch Instructor Doing Good (CIDG). Teachers have always been on the frontline in the delivery of
instruction. They make our schools not only a place of academic learning, but of social learning as well. As instructional
leaders, they face challenges every day. Along this line, Digos City Division seeks to catch exemplary performances to
serve as models or exemplars. These are carefully observed during the Himamat period. School heads, PSDS and EPS
take charge of gathering commendable practices.
Teachers who are found to be performing excellently in the classroom will be acknowledged. They will be
recognized during teachers' day, district fora or in division summits, and this could become a basis for awards and
recognition. It is the goal of this program to bring out the best among teachers and encourage them to do more.

Goal 3: Streamline Education Management and Governance


The education system is facing administrative challenges and processes that indicate broader set of limitations.
In the context of education innovations, schools and education systems are working to develop and pioneer new ways
to transform and improve efficiency in delivering quality education. Leverage in the use of all available technology like
the development of information management systems and capacity building of teaching and non-teaching personnel
shall enable the attainment of simplifying the education management and governance through research and continuous
improvement projects. All these lay the foundation of a streamlined education management and governance. This will
enable the Schools Division Office to consider how administrative services may be restructured. In the process of
restructuring, it will require centralized educational support for better management.
Decentralization has been the best option in responding to local needs. A cost-saving component is often a
natural effect of improving administrative processes as it leads to better fiscal administration and management at the
school level that can eventually improve teaching and learning environments.

Objective 3.1. Improve and simplify business processes


3.1.1. ESBEE-M (Empowering Schools, Building Excellent and Engaging Milieu Program). School-Based
Management (SBM) as defined, is the decentralization of decision-making authority from the central, regional, division,
and district to schools. It underscores the empowerment of stakeholders in school communities. Shared governance
gives life to SBM, and this can be attained when all stakeholders are made to actively participate towards the attainment
of higher student/pupil learning outcomes.
DepEd recognizes the truth that it takes a whole village to educate the child. If and when everyone in the school
community is engaged in translating school governance into meaningful programs, projects and activities, everyone will
also share accountability for student development. To achieve this, the key personnel in schools, led by the school heads,
need to understand relevant processes like formulating the Enhanced School Improvement Plan, organizing and
operationalizing School Governing Council, reporting school performance through the School Report Card, and aiming
for higher SBM Level of Practice for them to effectively empower both internal and external stakeholders.
Digos City Division strengthens SBM implementation through the ESBEEM (Empowering Schools, Building
Excellent and Engaging Milieu) Program which is further translated into specific key strategies. As a division program,
ESBEE-M aims to guarantee school progress and development by assurings that each school has a comprehensive and
relevant School Improvement Plan (SIP), formulated in collaboration with the community. ESBEE-M further aims to
empower school stakeholders where schools maintain a functional School Planning Team (SPT) and foster strong
partnership with their School Governing Council (SGC). Schools, being empowered to identify gaps and eventually

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 13
DBEDP Strategic Directions

formulate strategic plans to address these gaps, are expected to increase their SBM level of practice. In the principles of
transparency and of the importance of communication, Digos City Division envisions all schools to publish their School
Report Card (SRC) indicating data on school performance twice a year- in October and in March- and disseminate the
same to stakeholders. ESBEE-M operates through the following component programs:
#ESIP (Eskwelahang Segurado Imong Paglambu). Formulated in collaboration with the community, the School
Improvement Plan (SIP) is a roadmap that lays down the school's specific solutions to corresponding identified Priority
Improvement Areas (PIA). The SIP serves as the blueprint of what the school desires to achieve and how to achieve it.
Further, the SIP is the basis for the school's Annual Implementation Plan (AIP) and other specific plans.
The SIP contains the Annual Implementation Plan (AIP) reflecting effective and intensified implementation of
programs, projects and activities. By 2022, through the unwavering effort of proactive school heads, schools are
previsioned to strengthen partnership with committed stakeholders who are able to make critical decisions in the
crafting and implementation of the School Improvement Plan resulting to significant improvement of learning outcome.
SGC: Kapartner Natin. This program emphasizes the importance of engaging community stakeholders as active
partners of the school in achieving its targets. Empowering stakeholders is a significant move where schools promote
shared responsibility and accountability among school stakeholders. One specific scheme of empowering school
stakeholders is the organization of a functional School Governing Council (SGC) involving both internal and external
stakeholders. The SGC is a support system of the school in formulating policies concerning students' welfare and well-
being, as well as monitoring and evaluating SIP implementation. By 2022, schools shall have establish and shall have
operationalized School Governing Council for this will take part in giving assistance in the increase of student
performance outcome.
Speed Up to Level Up!. A community of excellence is the primary aim of every school. To attain this, it calls for
unified efforts between and among stakeholders in a school community. Assessment of school excellence is then
necessary for a school to identify areas needing improvement. Conducting assessment on SBM Level of Practice helps
much for a school to determine its strengths and weaknesses in terms of the 4 SBM Principles- Leadership and
Governance, Curriculum and Learning, Resource Management, and Accountability and Continuous Improvement.
DepEd Digos City Division, through ESBEE-M, projects that schools shall be at least in Level 2 in their SBM level
of Practice within 5 years
Performance Ko, I-report Ko. The School Report Card (SRC) is, like the SIP, an important element of School-
Based Management. The SRC is a report that provides stakeholders a snapshot of the school's current condition and
performance. It is a tool for advocating and communicating the school situation, context, and performance to internal
and external stakeholders to involve them in making the school a better place for learning.
Transparency and communication can be strengthened through the schools' publication of their School Report
Card (SRC) in October and in March. Utilization of data in the School Report Card is likewise expected to be strengthened
for through this, school initiatives on addressing gaps can be evident.
3.1.2. System Champs. To hearten a culture of systems-thinking at all levels of the organization, it is imperative
to institutionalize the structure, mechanism and standards for quality implementation of programs and activities.
Improved efficiency in the delivery of services to schools and learning centers that will consequently lead to an improved
school environment and learning outcomes.
3.1.3. MEAL (Monitoring & Evaluation, Accountability and Learning). Monitoring and Evaluation System shall
provide data, information, and insights on the efficiency and effectiveness of the Division’s technical support to schools.
Process owners are accountable in monitoring and evaluating projects, programs, and activities by capacitating schools
to do self-monitor with the ultimate goal of improving student learning outcomes.
Additionally, it was observed that some programs and projects implemented were consistently showing lack, if
not absence of, evidence-based documents that will support the execution of such programs. For this matter, the
monitoring and evaluation system will be keen in doing desired action by subjecting the program implementers to do
the corresponding requirements or else the data collected in relation to the aforesaid projects may be insufficient.
In view of such, there is a need to observe an established Monitoring and Evaluation System which provides
dependable data, information and insights on the efficiency and effectiveness of the Division's technical support to
schools for a continuous improvement of school services and facilities.
3.1.4. DReAMS (Division Records Access Management System). DReAMS will improve records management
system in phases of transmittal in each section, unit, school, and district offices of the Division which shall be in
accordance with the DepEd Records Management Manual and National Archives of the Philippines and is accessible to
all personnel and clients of the Division.
Division's Document Tracking System (DTS). This system was created for the purpose of streamlining records
management within the division. DTS is a software used to track the documents submitted to the Division Office. This

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 14
DBEDP Strategic Directions

Document Tracking System gives us advanced flexibility within a simple easy-to-use solution for both the division
personnel and clientele. Documents are track-numbered and transferred to a location or employee and a complete
chain-of-custody history is recorded in the database. It improves the flow of documents submitted since recording and
tracking of received documents are done centrally in the server eliminating the individual recording of documents by
sections and will save a lot of time than the traditional recording.
Division Property Inventory System (PIS). This system was created to streamline the updating and recording of
properties and inventories for the schools and the division office. In the past the division was struggling with the proper
recording and recognition of all assets that should be booked up in the book of accounts. Reliable cost of all the assets
of the division was not reflected due to issues regarding the non-recognition of inventories. A bulk of available old
records was available but is outdated and not reliable.
With DPIS, we can create and maintain a robust, paperless and efficient records of resources, assets and
procurements for effective governance. This can also provide relevant information for administrators to have accurate
and timely decisions. Real-time database will be available for reports and other concerns. This will promote transparency
and accountability on the use of government properties.
3.1.5. Cash Count Program. This program is aimed to improve the timely utilization and liquidation of the funds
downloaded to all non-implementing schools. The program shall be materialized through a series of activities that will
capacitate school administrators with sound fiscal administration in compliance with the Government Accounting
Manual and rules promulgated by other overseeing agencies.
With the program, all school heads can promptly liquidate downloaded funds with ease thereby contributing
to a timely and optimum use of resources which will contribute to the improved delivery of services through the proper
implementation of identified relevant programs, projects, and activities. School heads and other concerned parties may
likewise secure much needed answers in relation to relevant questions regarding MOOE disposition and liquidation.
3.1.6. CI (Continuous Improvement) Program. Continuous Improvement (CI) Program is being implemented to
create a culture of excellence in service delivery at all levels in the department making the schools being effective and
efficient in providing basic education to learners and empower the staff towards improving service delivery to internal
customers.
In this note, DepEd Digos City Division conducted a training of school heads and selected division personnel
focusing on the improvement of liquidation process as an initial project. The rollout of the program would be through
training and coaching of teams from schools by the five division coaches who were trained by the regional coaches. The
school teams would be working on a certain project which the school considers to be needing improvement. To track
the schools' implementation of the program, the division CI team creates a monitoring tool and sets quarterly meetings.
3.1.7. RAPD (Readily Available Planning Data). Similarly, to further store and provide reliable data, it was
deemed compulsory to strengthen the Learner Information System (LIS) of schools. However, teachers encounter
numerous challenges with the LIS. Thus, it was likewise necessary to create an Encoding and Attributing Manual for the
LIS and continuously update the same.
Reliable data banking is yielding vitalization in addressing the concern of school heads over the integrity and
reliability of data collection and storage in schools. Such fortification shall benefit school heads for the creation and
enhancement of the School Improvement Plan (SIP).
Furthermore, in order to improve efficiency of its processes, prompt and proper organization of Division
activities shall be enhanced. Such organization will mirror appropriate coordination of Division activities, ultimately driven
to direct, control, and obtain quality reflective acceptable standards. The activities shall include the formulation of quality
policy, setting quality objectives, quality planning, control, and assurance to achieve continuous improvement.

Objective 3.2. Improve Human Resource and Development


3.2.1. 5Ds (DepEd Digos Dagdag Dunong Drive). The DepEd workforce is one of the most valuable resources
of the department. Occasionally, however, the department loses a number of its best personnel to suspension, removal
and transfers because of transgressions against pertinent laws, government issuances and DepEd Orders.
To prevent from contributing to the attrition caused by violations of the above-mentioned regulations, the
Schools Division Office of Digos City (SDO-Digos City) resolved to cohere and reinforce the knowledge and observance
of such pronouncements within its jurisdiction. Consequently, SDO-Digos City conceptualized the DepEd Digos Dagdag
Dunong Drive (5Ds). The said program aims to significantly reduce if not, eliminate offences against the said orders
among SDO-Digos City personnel, teaching and non-teaching alike.
To breathe life to the 5Ds, numerous strategies and activities must be undertaken. Primarily, the SDO-Digos
City personnel shall physically discern the existence of the aforementioned decrees. By reemphasizing the said orders

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 15
DBEDP Strategic Directions

through various division memoranda and attaching copies of such proclamations for the consumption of the division
workforce, the actuality of such will not stay abstract.
Thereafter, the division challenged itself to put the awareness of its personnel over the discussed orders into
active application. Thus, the division decided to generate avenues wherein teaching and non-teaching personnel within
SDO-Digos can creatively manifest their appreciation over the said edicts in different competitions.
Moreover, to further enhance the committed adherence with the dictates herein covered, the division
concluded that community involvement must be ensured in the intensified propagation and implementation of the said
orders.
Subsequently, after the realization of the abovementioned strategies, the division purposely planned a clustered
summit wherein the abovementioned laws, issuances and DepEd Orders will be discussed by competent and experienced
lecturers. Certainly, after the careful implementation of the said strategies and activities, the division shall experience
diminishing numbers of contraventions against these DepEd proclamations
3.2.2. PPATABHO (Professional and Personal Advancement thru Training/Learning & Development (L&D),
Awards & Recognition, and other programs for Balanced Human Resource Optimization). The achievement of the
abovementioned objectives involves various levels of strategies which may require newly acquired knowledge, skills,
perspectives, and attitude for the implementers.
Surely, benchmarking and training interventions are necessary to capacitate them to ensure the intensification
of the quality and relevance of the basic education. The Learning and Development Program of the Human Resource
Development Unit can provide opportunities for training activities for the concerned personnel in this particular aspect.
Training involves providing the knowledge and skills required for the employees to do a particular job.
All concerned division personnel, teaching and non-teaching, shall be capacitated in the aspect of
benchmarking through learning visits to other schools, and in the application of their learnings in improving their own
situations. They shall also be equipped with new skills and knowledge through other forms of training interventions of
their choice and become competent in delivering their roles. All trained personnel shall accomplish a re-entry plan or an
action plan after the training and shall be fully compliant with their own plans. They shall become advocates of quality
performance who are always in pursuit of continuous improvement and relevance. Benchmarking with other divisions
may likewise be necessary. Further, they will also need venues to cascade these to the end users.
Moreover, the Division is responsive to the natural appeal of professional progress in the workplace. Thus,
supporting the inner clamor for career advancement among its personnel, the Division is eager to utilize different Human
Resource Development (HRD) principles, systems, and processes that will enhance the value (performance and
contribution) of the employees by identifying and bridging competency gaps, maximizing existing competencies, and
discovering and cultivating potentials. Such HRD systems are explained in the following paragraphs, to wit;
Career Management. The Division Personnel (Teaching & Non-Teaching) Career Planning and Management
(DPCPM) aim to address the mismatch between qualifications and actual job assignments, especially among teachers,
and the low turn-out of qualified applicants for vacant key positions resulting to OIC capacities. By encouraging
individual employee's growth and development and helping them manage their professional careers. This is a form of
empowerment that shall result in a kind of agency that "continuously improve itself to better serve its stakeholders"
(taken from the DepEd mission).
Succession Planning. The division's succession planning aims to ensure the filling up of vacant positions from
the existing pool of employees in the division office and school level. This will not only ensure the continuity of the
services rendered by the specific position but will also give a big boost to the morale of the employees thru promotion.
Scholarship and Research Opportunities. To improve their credentials and capabilities, and to help DepEd in
making sound policies and programs, opportunities such as taking graduate and post-graduate studies and conducting
research studies should be made available to the teaching and non-teaching division personnel.
Rewards and Recognition. "Mga Natatanging Kawani ng DepEd Digos City Division" is a mechanism to reward
the outstanding and exemplary performances of teaching, teaching-related and non-teaching personnel in the
Division.Program on Awards and Incentives for Service Excellence (PRAISE) shall be institutionalized in the Division. The
program aims to encourage, recognize, and reward employees, individually or in groups, for their suggestions,
innovative ideas, inventions, discoveries, superior accomplishments, heroic deeds, exemplary behavior, extraordinary
acts or services in the public interest and other personal efforts contributing to efficiency, economy and improvement
in government operations which lead to organizational productivity. In addition, the PRAISE committee shall be
responsible in implementing the welfare and benefit programs in the Division Office to include the granting of awards
and incentives to teachers/employees who have rendered meritorious services or excellent performance. Thus, the
committee shall formulate and establish respective internal rules, policies and procedures to govern the conduct of
activities which shall include the guidelines in evaluating the nominees and the mechanism for recognizing the awardees
(DepEd Order No. 78,s. 2007 and DepEd Order No. 9,s. 2002).

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 16
DBEDP Strategic Directions

As provided in Section 6.2 of the PRAISE (DepEd Order No. 9, s. 2002), the following awards may be given by
the Division PRAISE:
1. Best Employee Award - given to an individual or individuals who excelled among peers in a functional
group, position or profession;
2. Gantimpala Agad Award - given outright to employees commended by clients for their courtesy,
promptness, efficiency and dedication to duty;
3. Exemplary Behavior Award - based on the eight (8) norms of conduct provided in RA 6713 (Code of
Conduct and Ethical Standards);
4. Best Organizational Unit Award - given to the top organizational unit on the basis of meeting the
organization's performance targets and other pre-determined criteria;
5. Cost Economy Measure Award - given to an employee or team whose contributions such as ideas,
suggestions, inventions, discoveries or performance of functions result in savings in terms of manhours and
cost, or otherwise benefit the DepEd and government as a whole;
6. Service Award – given to retirees whether under optional or compulsory retirement schemes; and
7. Other awards which the committee may decide to give.
As such, the Division PRAISE shall continuously search, screen and reward deserving employees to motivate
them to improve the quality of their performance and instill excellence in public service.
Aside from training, learning and development, the division personnel teaching, and non-teaching, shall be
able to access the other components of HRD that include career management, rewards and recognition, and succession
planning to produce quality teachers that Digos City Division envisions.
3.2.3 Teacher Induction Program (TIP). Teacher Induction Program (TIP) is institutionalized to provide a
systematic and comprehensive support system for the newly hired teachers in order to seamlessly immerse them in the
teaching profession in the public school system. This aims to upgrade their skills to the content standards of the K to 12
Basic Education Program (BEP).
To institutionalize this program, DepEd Digos City Division creates TIP Management Team with TIP Manager
and TIP Coordinator. It uses coaching-mentoring scheme wherein highly proficient and distinguished teachers
continuously provide professional help to the newly hired teachers to enhance their learning and practice on content
and pedagogy utilizing six modules and topics by key stages. Monitoring and evaluation is integrated during the
execution of pair modules. After all the modules are completed, the division awards Certificate of Completion to the
newly hired teachers who have undergone the training.
3.2.4. Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST). The changes brought about by various national
and global frameworks such as the K to 12 Reform, ASEAN Integration, globalization, and the changing character of
the 21st century learners necessitate the improvement and call for the rethinking of the National Competency-Based
Teacher Standards (NCBTS), hence, the development of the PPST.
The PPST defines teacher quality in the Philippines. The standards describe the expectations of teachers'
increasing level of knowledge, practice and professional engagement. It describes the breadth of 7 domains that are
required among teachers to be effective in the 21st century in the Philippines. It also articulates developmental
progression as teachers develop and refine their practice and respond to the complexities of educational reforms. These
are defined in the four (4) career stages such as: Beginning Teachers, Proficient Teachers, Highly Proficient Teachers and
Distinguished Teachers.
The PPST shall be used as basis for all learning and development programs for teachers to ensure that teachers
are properly equipped to effectively implement the K to 12 Program. It can also be used for the selection and promotion
of teachers. All performance appraisals for teachers shall be based on this set of standards. More so, reporting of the
orientation and related activities shall be done by the divisional and regional offices to the Office of the Secretary through
the Teacher Education Council.
The institutionalization of the program will start in SY 2018-2019. All teachers will undergo training on the use
of the PPST tool. The national office conducted the roll out in August 2018. A regional training of trainers is scheduled
in the month of June 2018. This would be followed immediately by the division training. The training would be done in
seven (7) batches with four (4) classes for every batch.
3.2.5. Gender and Development (GAD). In consistence with DepEd's mandate to ensure access to quality basic
education for all and DepEd's Vision, Mission, and Values, Digos City Division commits to integrate the principles of
gender equality, gender equity, gender sensitivity, non-discrimination and human rights, in the provision and
governance of basic education to holistically develop learners with access to quality, culture-based basic education in a
learner-friendly, safe, and nurturing environment with the provision to continuously improve its support systems at all
levels of governance.

Division Basic Education Development Plan 2018-2022 - DepEd Digos City Division | Completed: 12 October 2018 17
DBEDP Strategic Directions

The implementation of GAD ensures a gender-responsive physical and social learning environment that
promotes respect for all people and has zero-tolerance to all forms of discrimination, violence, and abuse. It also develops
contextualized and localized Learning Resources (LRs) integrating GAD core messages and key concepts.
3.2.6. DORA (Disasters Optimal Resiliency and Awareness). To institutionalize Disaster Risk Reduction and
Management (DRRM) in basic education in the context of natural and human-induced hazards is of primordial concern
of the Division Office to ensure the continuity of learning and the safety and resiliency of the 47 schools under it. This
can be concretized by empowering learners, teachers and non-teaching personnel.
To strengthen the implementation of DRRM Program, the Digos City Division initiated Project DORA (Disasters
Optimal Resiliency and Awareness) to capacitate schools in addressing DRRM-related concerns. Floods, tropical cyclones,
and major earthquakes, though not always as destructive, are the deadliest and costliest of hazards. On the other hand,
the most terrible consequences are deaths and injuries in schools. From SY 2009-2010 to 2013-2014, top three hazard
exposures of schools are tropical cyclones, floods, and earthquakes (DepEd EBEIS; 2009 - 2013). In some cases, schools
experience more than one hazard at one point in time. It should also be noted that schools are as well exposed to
human-induced hazards like armed conflict and fire at 7% and 2%, respectively (DepEd EBEIS; 2009 - 2013). In Digos
City, there are 8 schools prone to flood, 15 schools prone to landslide and 4 schools prone to storm surge and tsunami
(PDRRMC, 2017). The accompanying risks from natural hazards could be determined by the structural integrity of school
buildings; awareness and capacity of teachers and students; geographic location of schools; population distribution;
and institutional support. With these being established, intensifying Disaster Risk Reduction and Management is assured.
By 2022, the Schools Division of Digos City shall have created a “DRRM Primer” through Project DORA to
heighten the level of awareness and raise the readiness of all leaners on disaster management. By then, learners shall
have been equipped with necessary knowledge and skills to become more resilient in disaster.
3.2.7. #HandaParaSaKabataan - Career: Not a Dream but a Choice. In line with the goal of the K to 12
Curriculum to produce graduates who are ready for higher education, middle level skills development, employment and
entrepreneurship, there is a need for a heightened awareness on Career Guidance Advocacy Program among the
students where they will be provided with adequate information and knowledge of their possible careers so that they
will be guided to choose a career path that is aligned with their skills and interests. This helps lessen the cases of shifting
from one track or strand to another; and to address the concern of job mismatch which leads to unemployment of
graduates.
Through the program, which offers series of trainings, all incoming and graduating learners in Senior High
School are guided as to which career path they will choose: to pursue higher education, to engage in business, to
commit to work, or to choose middle level skills development. These choices will challenge their decision-making and
will prepare them for other life skills in the world of work.
To complement this program, this division ensures the efficient implementation and practice of the Supreme
Pupil Government (SPG) and Supreme Student Government (SSG). These are foremost co-curricular student
organizations authorized to operate and implement pertinent programs, projects and activities in schools. These lay the
ground for good governance, volunteerism, unity, and cooperation by providing students various venues where they
can improve their leadership potentials and hone their skills.
3.2.8. AMoSKo (Anak Mo, Sagot Ko). This is a Guidance Program designed to capacitate the Guidance
Associates, Peer Helpers and Parents to best serve our learners. Guidance Services is focused on the holistic development
of the students by creating a helping and a nurturing environment and promoting DO 40, s.2012, otherwise known as
the Child Protection Policy, through the following division-initiated programs and activities: Guidance Associates
Capacity Building Program, Parents Effectiveness Program, and Peer Helpers Program. The Guidance Associates Capacity
Building Program equips guidance associates with skills in helping and counseling students encountering various
difficulties in life. This will also practice children's resiliency in upholding mental health for easier learning to take place.
The Parents Effectiveness Program supports and capacitates parents with the knowledge in handling their children well,
understanding millennial children, and understanding their roles to the education of their children. This further equips
young parents with life skills and knowledge on the proper way of rearing their children and helping them to accomplish
their ambitions, discover their full potential and bring out the best in them. Kabarkada sa Eskwela Program, also known
as the Peer Helpers Group, is a group of students, under the guidance of the school Guidance Associates, trained to
become good helpers, agents and channels of sound peer socialization. This will guide children in school to unfold
wholesome and creative thinking on making interpersonal and intrapersonal decisions in life.

Objective 3.3. Strengthen the Division’s Research and Development (R&D)


3.3.1. RIPE (Research Incubation Program for Educators). In support of the Department’s initiative towards
evidenced-based policy development and decision-making process, there is a need to improve the conduct,
dissemination, utilization, and storage of research studies in the Division. From 2015 to 2017, an average of 17% of
research proposals are completed with copies of the manuscript forwarded to the Planning and Research Section for

acceptance. By 2022, 80% of submitted research proposals shall be completed, presented/published, utilized, and
cataloged through the Research Incubation Program for Educators.
The program aims to develop teacher-researchers through intensive hands-on training in all steps of the
research process from the identification of a research problem to the publication of research findings. They will also be
trained in the use of technology such as open access journal, search engine, word processor, reference management
system, and open source statistical software as tools to augment their research skills. To ensure the timely completion
of proposals based on their research timelines, a Research Management System shall be developed. The system shall
enable research managers to keep track of research studies being conducted under their direct supervision and help
identify researchers' dire need of assistance. It shall also serve as the repository of all proposed and completed research
studies making research results available to the decision makers of the organization.

DBEDP Key Performance Indicators

KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Performance for the Past Six Years


The Division's performance for the majority of the KPI's at the elementary level has been well above or close to
the target set by NEDA. The Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER), Net Enrolment Ratio (NER), cohort survival rate, completion
rate, and the learners' performance in the National Achievement Test (NAT) at the elementary level has been steadily
increasing for the past six years surpassing targets (Table 5). On the other hand, the Secondary level surpassed only the
completion target by 1.16% while the NER and GER went below the target by 9.17% and 12.97% respectively (Table
7).
Target for the Next Six Years
The Division aims that by 2022, the Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) at the kindergarten level will be at 100%. This
means that there shall be a -7.12% annual decrease in the indicator. For the same grade level, the Net Enrolment Ratio
(NER) shall be at 100% with an annual decrease of -2.35%. Once achieved, this will indicate that all children in the
division who will be turning five years old within the school year shall have entered kindergarten by the terminal year
of the plan.
For Grades 1 to 6, the enrolment is expected to increase annually by 2%. This translates to a total of 26,982
learners by SY 2022-2023 from 24,438 leaners in SY 2016-2017. The GER, NER, and cohort survival rate shall be
maintained as these are currently above the School Development Goal targets. Completion rate and performance in the
National Achievement Test (NAT) shall be increased annually by 0.42% and 1.16% respectively in order to achieve the
end of plan target of 100% for the completion rate and 91.32% for the NAT (Table 8).
For Grades 7 to 12, enrolment is also expected to increase from 14,674 learners in SY 2016-2017 to 16,201 by
SY 2022-2023, indicating a 2% annual increase. To attain the 100% GER by SY 2022-2023, an annual increase of
0.49% was set. On the other hand, the NER, was set to have an annual increase of 3.58% to achieve the 100% target.
To reach the 100% target by the end of the plan, an annual increase of 3% is set for the completion rate. Moreover,
cohort survival rate was set at 0.73% annual increase to reach the SDG target of 83%. Finally, the performance of our
learners in the NAT for the Secondary level was pegged at 5.91% annual increase to hit the 84.99% target by S.Y 2011-
2023 (Table 8).
