TO improve teachers' effectiveness and pupils' achievement, Benoni elementary school held an in-service training on school-based management September 6-7, 2010 at Queobe Eco Park Training Center this municipality.
Under the Basic Education Sector Reform (BESRA) of the Department of Education (DepEd), Benoni ES was recipient of the SBM grants aimed to empower every school to continuously improve its performance in attaining education outcomes.
Other recipient school were teachers from Tacangon elementary school under Ms. Maricar Marites Ann H. Reyes, who also attended in the said training.
In order to maximize potentials of pupils, there is also need for teachers to maximize their potentials as well.
With the SBM, teachers are also expected to engage the community, local leaders, the private sector, the non-government organizations so that they can be partners in achieving school improvement plans.
This is part of DepEd’s vision to make principals not just educators, but effective managers as well.
With this new program thrust of the DepEd, I am positive that the result of this SBM we can make pupils achieve more.
