Improvement of KPIs is real measure of success – SDS Panganiban
Division Information and Action Officer
Dr. Hermogenes M. Panganiban, OIC-Schools Division Superintendent of SDO Imus City, underscored the importance of improvement in key performance indicators as measure of success in the implementation of programs and projects.
“Ang pag-angat ng performance indicators ang nagdidikta ng saysay ng lahat ng ating ginagawa,” SDS Panganiban stressed during the Division’s 1st Quarterly Program Implementation Review (PIR) and Work and Financial Plan Adjustment held on March 27 at the newly-constructed SDO conference hall.
His statement echoed the target of the six-year Division Education Development Plan (DEDP) which states the need to prioritize net enrolment, dropout and performance in the National Achievement Test in order to produce holistically-developed Filipinos with 21st century skills—learners who are ready for higher education, entrepreneurship and work.
“Ang dapat bumaba, mapababa sana. Ang dapat naman tumaas ay mapataas. Pagsumikapan po natin ito para tayo ay iisa. Iisang direksyon,” the Schools Division Superintendent said, citing reading proficiency level and other curricular areas as examples.
He also highlighted that facts and figures are vital in making decisions and reporting accomplishments to stakeholders, especially during the Local Stakeholders Convergence.
The SDS urged the participants composed of unit heads and program owners to strive for continuous improvement and achieve targets relative to the fulfillment of key result areas.
Panganiban reminded everyone to use the Division calendar of activities as guide in the implementation of programs, projects and activities (PPAs).
“For the past three months, how far have we gone? What were implemented and how?” he asked.
During the whole-day event spearheaded by the School Governance and Operations Division, the participants were able to revisit the DEDP and compare accomplishment of their PPAs against the Division targets and make adjustments depending on status.
For his part, Assistant Schools Division Superintendent Galileo L. Go challenged all CID, SGOD and OSDS key personnel to level up the next PIR “by identifying success stories, best practices and lessons learned.”
According to Jenielyn A. Sadang, EPS-II SMME, the 2nd Quarter PIR will be held in the first week of July.
