With the transition to K to 12 comes a number of significant changes, and it would be best for school managers and administrators to be adequately prepared for this momentous change in the Philippine educational system.
The new senior high curriculum will be introduced in school year 2016-2017. Under the new curriculum, the 12-year program will award diplomas for six years in elementary, four years in junior high school, and two years in senior high school. A full 12 year-education will subsequently be required for admission into college once it has been fully implemented.
In February, Leadership Strategies for School Managers (LESSM) will help school principals and decision makers through this transition by shedding more light on how senior high school will affect the general school curriculum, and how educational institutions can smoothly phase into the complete K to 12 system.
With “Senior High Success: Effectively Implementing the Senior High Curriculum,”the country’s leading academicians will not only discuss the senior high school curriculum in detail, they will also focus on the various processes involved in transition management.
Effecting change is an oftentimes challenging process. However, with change comes progress, and the shift in the system will benefit our country in the long-run by producing more globally competitive students.
This will pave the way towards a new path for Philippine education, leading us to a more promising destination.
