SMEA takes-off at CNHS
By Wenie L. Nahial
In DepEd-Camiguin, the School Monitoring and Evaluation, and Adjustments (SMEA) has finally started to roll-out at Camiguin National High School (CNHS) on September 7, 2017.
Focusing on school performance and drop-out of the school M&E system, Dr. Lailane E. Lopena, the chief of the School Governance and Operations Division (SGOD) together with the school principal Mr. Raymond E. Sabunod took control of the reportage to the internal and external stakeholders of the school.
Not just due to her being the SGOD Chief that Dr. Lopena did the reporting, but to show of her being on top of the school situation during her stint as school principal of CNHS in the first quarter of the school year.
No other than Dr. Roy Angelo E. Gazo, the schools division superintendent of DepEd-Camiguin, led the group of the panel of reactors coming from the members of the School Governing Council, municipal government, barangay chairmen and its council committee chair in education, and some external representatives of the School Planning Team.
Before the SMEA was declared in session, Dr. Gazo explained to all the stakeholders in attendance the importance of the Monitoring Evaluation and Adjustments technology in helping the learners acquire the complete basic education so necessary in the world of work, entrepreneurship, and college education.
This MEA technology will be regularly conducted in all the public elementary and secondary schools to make sure that each learner is given all the opportunity to finish school at the right age.
For being the first to conduct the actual SMEA, some of the school heads and Information Communication Technology (ICT) coordinators from both elementary and secondary schools have benchmarked on the proceedings of the reportage to the stakeholders.
As witnessed, stakeholders showed appreciation of SMEA by being responsive in giving commitments to help the school address the existing problems it faces as sort of adjustments for the second grading period.
