Abstract

The study describes and explains the level of implementation of the Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST) along Content Knowledge and Pedagogy, Learning Environment and Diversity of Learners, Curriculum and Planning, Assessment and Reporting and Plus factors in secondary schools of Bula district in the Philippines. Significant findings of the study using the overall mean in teachers’ Individual Performance Rating (IPR) results revealed that among five parameters in PPST, the first in rank is Plus Factor which focuses on various related works and activities of teachers that contribute to the teaching-learning process like participating in training or seminar, coaching and mentoring learners in competitions and others. However, Assessment and Reporting got the lowest overall mean among the parameters. Problems such as parents’ low participation rate in attending meetings and home visitations were identified as well as lacking of communication platforms or modalities agreed by both parents and teachers. In addition, the researcher also used Focus Group Discussion (FGD) to 4 teachers in small schools, 30 teachers in medium schools and 18 teachers in big school to know the other factors that could affect teachers’ competency. These are personal factors which include the teachers’ extrinsic and intrinsic motivation in teaching, social factors such as support system from parent, colleague and school head and lastly, institutional factors consisting of organizational innovations and improvements. Among the said factors, it showed that social factor has a big impact in nurturing and enriching the competency of teachers since they were the immediate support group of teachers. This study recommends the adoption of the researcher-developed program entitled, Empowering Competence through Performance Awareness of Teachers and Stakeholders (E-C PATHS): A Development Program. This program contains a self-evaluation dashboard, E-C PATHS Individual Plan and four different projects to effectively cater the needs of the secondary teachers especially in Bula district in terms of Assessment and Reporting.
