MON­I­TOR­ING PRI­VATE SCHOOLS

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

DIVINA GRA­CIA D. DI­ZON

The De­part­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion (DepEd) is for­mu­lat­ing a new pol­icy on mon­i­tor­ing of pri­vate schools.

The pol­icy will in­clude form­ing the par­tic­i­pa­tory mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­a­tion team com­posed of schools heads, lo­cal govern­ment units from the barangay, mu­nic­i­pal­ity, prov­ince and re­gion, par­ents as­so­ci­a­tion, and as­so­ci­a­tion of pri­vate schools ad­min­is­tra­tors and the DepEd.

Un­der the pol­icy, pre­ven­tion of op­er­a­tion of schools with per­mits, per­for­mance of pri­vate schools, qual­ity of pri­vate schools, and com­pli­ance of pri­vate schools to laws and reg­u­la­tions will be strictly mon­i­tored.

The pro­posed pol­icy fo­cuses on pri­vate schools since it is only the qual­ity as­sur­ance di­vi­sion of DepEd that mon­i­tors these schools.

Also un­der the pol­icy will be the need to cas­cade the in­for­ma­tion on the stan­dards of pri­vate schools and its com­pli­ance to DepEd poli­cies, as well as its pi­lot test­ing.
