The K-12 Program of the Department of Education aims to provide all learners with high quality education that will enable them to be fit and prepared for employment and tertiary academic pursuits both locally and globally.  The success of this program in anchored on the active and full participation of all educational stakeholders, most especially those who are tasked to implement the program.  It needs highly qualified and able school/institution administrators to spearhead and implement the program to fruition.  Thus, they should be fortified and equipped with relevant and responsive educational perspectives and prospective in inclusive education.  The administrators need to develop a collaborative/participative stance with stakeholders (schools officials, LGUs, business sectors, NGOs, community leaders/associations, parents, teachers, and DepEd officials) in order to review and reformulate their respective school’s direction and strategic plans.  This calls for an educational model paradigm-shift.  Corollary to the paradigm shift is an in-depth look into the individual institution’s initiatives in order to effectively deliver the vision, mission, goals, and objectives of the K to 12 reform.  The same paradigm will call for a review of practices to achieve high learner performance by ensuring high quality teachers/ staff, safe and orderly learning environment for all, and smooth/effective operations.  This conference hopes to engage participants to mobilize their community in pursuit of the K to 12 perspective for nation building.


The conference aims to:

  1. Have an in-depth understanding of theories and practices of the educational model paradigm-shift on school management in view of the implementation of Grades 11 & 12;
  2. Present the global perspective and practices in implementing Grades 11 & 12;
  3. Identify relevant and responsive strategies towards the implementation of effective Grades 11 & 12 based on socio-economic situations ;
  4. Define the Educational Model Paradigm of Grades 11 & 12 in terms of (a) teaching and  learning, (b) systems management with business and entrepreneurial schemes; and community organizing and development of good governance for education; and
  5. Develop an action plan that will uphold the educational management model paradigm-shift to implement Grades 11 & 12.


At the end of the conference, the participants are expected to come up with a Resolution and a doable Action Plan for the Implementation of the Educational Model Paradigm-Shift for Grades 11 & 12.
