CITY OF IMUS – Three pairs of School-to-School Partnership (SSP) participating schools formally sealed their partnership during a simple ceremony held at the Schools Division Office (SDO) on August 22.

Led by their school heads, the three pairs composed of Bayan Luma I ES & Cayetano Topacio ES, Alapan I ES & Bukandala ES and Imus National High School (INHS) Alapan Annex & INHS Greengate Annex signed the School-to-School Partnership Agreement for Fiscal Year 2016.

CES/OIC SDS Dr. Lualhati O. Cadavedo and the schools’ PTA presidents served as witnesses and also signed in the said agreement.

Bayan Luma I ES, Alapan I ES, and INHS – Alapan Annex, were identified as Leader Schools, those which are considered high-performing schools after obtaining Level 5 in the 2014 Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) performance categories.

On the other hand, Partner Schools, operationally, are those categorized as Level 1 in the PBB performance computation.

Based from DepEd Order 44, s. 2016 or “Guidelines on the School-to-School Partnership for Fiscal Year 2016,” Leader Schools are tasked to assist their respective Partner Schools in reaching its potential in school performance through collaborative activities and projects including sharing of best practices and provision of technical assistance.

In addition, they are also responsible for monitoring the outcomes of the activities and processing the insights and learnings gained by its teams involved in the partnership.

With the help of the SDO SSP Technical Working Group, the Leader Schools have already assessed the needs of their Partner Schools based on their School Improvement Plan (SIP).

They are set to conduct their partnership projects and activities starting September until December 31.
