This is to support the Presidents Ten (10) Point Agenda of the present administration on Education namely: 12 Years basic Education, Universal Pre-Schooling, Madaris Education, Technical and Vocational Education, Every Child a Reader by Grade I, Improvement of Science and Math, Expanding Government Assistance to Private Education, MTB-MLE, Better Textbooks, and Built More Schools with the Local Government Units (LGU).

To evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of these programs, a quick assessment will be made based on the schools performance indicators like Gross Enrolment Rate(GER),Net Enrolment Rate(NER), Cohort Survival Rate (CSR),  and School Leaver Rate(SLR). These indicators will show how a certain school performs on the desired targets of the Division and Region as well.

A school SWOT (Strength, Weakneses, Opportunities, and Threats) both internal and external assessment may contribute to the identification of strategies and realize possible setting of priorities that will help to raise the level of performance in the implementation of these Programs, Activities,  and Projects( PAPs) of the Schools, District, and Division. This will guide all stakeholders on the right tract. School Heads and District Supervisors and all in the DepEd System  will have a situational analysis  on the major challenges/concern, weaknesses and strength  in order to achieve the targets  that will suit to Quality, Relevance, Access and Governance.
