The participants listen to the message of Regional Director Arturo B. Bayocot, CESO V, during the Second Quarter 2019-2020 RMEA Conference at the Division Training Center, Division of Bukidnon, Malaybalay City, on July 2, 2019.

MALAYBALAY CITY, July 2, 2019Targeted in the Second Quarter CY 2019-2020 Regional Monitoring, Evaluation, and Adjustment (RMEA) were Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in terms of gross/net enrolment rates (GER/NER) and achievement rates.

The conference, which was conducted at the Division Training Center, Division of Bukidnon, Malaybalay City, on July 2, 2019, also focused on the achievement of yearly targets as reflected in the Regional/Divisional Education Development Program (REDP/DEDP) and interventions for the identified gaps.

Presented to address the targets identified by Chief Rogelio C. Evangelista, Quality Assurance Division (QAD), were reports of the concerned Regional Office (RO) functional division chiefs on Technical Assistance for the First Quarter, Quarter KPIs, and the prework participated in by the divisional Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) coordinators and program holders, which were also discussed and validated by the concerned divisions. 

In the welcome remarks of Dr. Cherry Mae L. Limbaco, schools division superintendent, Division of Bukidnon, she said that the Division ranked one in the National Achievement Test (NAT) for the Senior High School (SHS) program in the region, which is a manifestation that the Division has done its share in effectively delivering the programs of SHS.

“This is a bold move for all of us to settle important issues as we strive for the future of our learners in Region X. Likewise, we are hoping to have happy teachers because happy teachers can influence our learners. If we have happy teachers and happy learners, we can have better performance. And I believe RMEA is one avenue to achieve this goal,” she added.

Meanwhile, in his message, Regional Director Arturo B. Bayocot, CESO V, said that as the quarterly RMEA is being staged, the problems should be surfaced, chopped down, and tasked to ensure that the roots of the problem are identified.

“The interventions should not just be at the surface level. To solve the problem is not intervening or addressing the problem per se. It is really addressing the causes of the problem,” he emphasized. 

Bayocot further said that the intervention designed for dropout, for example, is the one addressing the root cause of the problem. 

“We should not be bored of repeating or making adaptations of our interventions until we get what we aspire for,” he concluded. 

Participating in the RMEA conference were the regional director, assistant regional director, schools division superintendents, assistant schools division superintendents, functional division chiefs and program holders from the Regional Office (RO) and the Schools Division Offices (SDOs), and other select personnel from concerned offices.   | Abrera Jr., R.G.
