Author(s): Bimbao Mateo Jr. Espanola, Bimbao Ma. Gemma Arro, Soriano Eleanor Gacela


School-Based Management is concerned with the decentralization of decision-making authority from the central, regional, and division offices to the individual schools. The idea is to unite the school heads, teachers, students, local government units, and the community to improve the quality of early formal education in Philippine public schools.

This study desired to assess the school-based management practices and school operation competency level among school heads of public secondary schools in Region VI, Philippines. This also aims to determine whether there is a significant relationship or difference between their school-based management practices and school operation competency level.

Results of this study will be beneficial to school heads by providing awareness not only on the level of school-based management practices but as well as their level of competence in school operations. This will likewise help teachers determine the impact of the school-based management practices and school head’s competence to the schools’ academic performance. Knowing the impact of the school-based management, the parents and other stakeholders will become supportive to their children’s activities in school. The learners will be provided with intended support and conducive learning environment that will lead to the attainment of better education outcomes. Findings of this study may provide some ideas and concepts in the continued quest to establish a culture of excellence in schools.
