ABSTRACT
Every public school in the Philippines is mandated to have a three-year School Improvement Plan (SIP). It is a document which embodies what a school wants to achieve and the manner with which to achieve it. Mission and Vision, which the SIP contains, are one of the essential parts of the SIP. School Vision will provide the direction and leadership toward collaborative actions, steer the administration, teachers and the stakeholders to act in one course, serve as guide with the critical point such as dreams, goals and aspiration of the institution while the School Mission is something that describe the path that the school chooses to take to become what it wants to be as expressed in the vision statement.
This term paper describes the issue on the process on school improvement planning that includes an instrument by which the community can hold a certain school accountable for student performance. The goal of every school improvement plan should be to reach every student. In order to accomplish this, school administrators and staff must focus on student learning and the best practices that they wish to see in their classrooms and implement these best practices at the professional level. Whether implicit or explicit, a school mission and vision that is understood and embodied by all members of a school seems to have some effect on the success of a all school.

...选修6课文 1 A SHORT HISTORY OF WESTERN PAINTING Art is influenced by the customs and faith of a people. Styles in Western art have changed many times. As there are so many different styles of Western art, it would be impossible to describe all of them in such a short text. Consequently, this text will describe only the most important ones, starting from the sixth century AD. The Middle Ages (5th to the 15th century AD) During the Middle Ages, the main aim of painters was to represent religious themes. A conventional artist of this period was not interested in showing nature and people as they really were. A typical picture at this time was full of religious symbols, which created feeling of respect and love for God. But it was evident that ideas were changing in the 13th century when painters like Giotto di Bondone began to paint religious scenes in a more realistic way. The Renaissance (15th to 16th century) During the Renaissance, new ideas and values graduallv replaced those held in the Middle Ages.People began to concentrate less on religious themes and adopt a more humanistic attitude to life. At the same time painters returned to classical Roman and Greek ideas about art. They tried to paint people and nature as they really were. Rich people wanted to possess their own paintings, so they could decorate their superb palaces and great houses. They paid famous artists to paint pictures of themselves, their houses and possessions as well as...

Mission & Vision Statements

...MISSION & VISION STATEMENTS FedEx & Google Mission & Vision Statement Analysis Prepared for Prepared by October, 2013 MISSION STATEMENT “Mission statement is a description of what an organization actually does – what its business is – and why it does it.” Often called the “credo”, “philosophy”, “core values” or “our aspirations”, organization’s mission is the statement that defines its core purpose or reason for being. It tells who a company is and what it does. According to P. Drucker, often called the father of modern management, a mission is the primary guidance in creating plans, strategies or making daily decisions. It is an important communication tool that conveys information about organization’s products, services, targeted customers, geographic markets, philosophies, values and plans for future growth to all of its stakeholders. In other words, every major reason why company exists must be reflected in its mission, so any employee, supplier, customer or community would understand the driving force behind organization’s operations. There are two types of statements: * Customer-oriented missions. Customer-oriented missions define organization’s purpose in terms of meeting customer needs or providing solutions for them. For example, Nokia’s statement “connecting people” is customer-oriented. * Product-oriented missions. Product-oriented missions focus on what products or services to serve rather than what solutions to provide......

"Use the company culture description for more details on the goals and direction of the business." Vision statements are future-based and are meant to give inspiration and direction to the employees of the company, not anyone outside the company. Vision statements are formal and can change over time. As a company grows, its objectives and goals most likely will change. Vision statements need to be restructured as needed to compliment the change as goals are on target and met. A couple of questions you might need to ask yourself when writing your vision statement includes the following, what problem does your company want to solve? What does your company wish to achieve? Who is your target consumer, and what do you want to do for them business wise? Vision statements should provide a sense of direction and......

Preparing a School Improvement Plan

...Preparing A School Improvement Plan In the 1990’s the author was introduced to the school improvement plan of his school by being called into the principal’s office along with two other teachers and asked to read over and sign the document written by the principal. A quick reading through the document satisfied us that it was in English and had complete sentences, even if we did not fully appreciate every single acronym that was included. The author and another teacher made the mistake of asking for an explanation of all the acronyms, to which the principal responded positively and gave us the dubious distinction of preparing the document for the following year. One question turned a document generated by several hours of work by the principal into a team of two. Fifteen years later the team consists of sixteen individuals, including teachers, an administrator, a counselor, a district leader, and a parent. In addition, parents and community members are called to review the school plan with team members prior to its release to the public. The school improvement plan is required by several federal and state mandates such as Title One (ESEA, 1965), the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB, 2001), and the Texas Education Agency (TEA, 2011). These various mandates require that a school improvement plan is used by the school leadership in assuring the budgets from different federal and state agencies are properly planned out and accounted for. Since planning is necessary to......

Graduate Tracer Study of B.S Aquino National High School S.Y 2011 - 2012

...reflected in the inadequate preparation of high school graduates for the world of work or entrepreneurship or higher education. High school graduates also do not possess the basic competencies or emotional maturity essential for the world of work this is according to the discussion paper of the Enhanced K+12 Basic Education Program of 2010. While the availability of economic opportunities contributes to this, it also illustrates the mismatch in the labor and education markets. The World Bank Philippines Skills Report in 2009 reveals, based on a survey of employers, serious gaps in critical skills of graduates such as problem-solving, initiative and creativity, and, to a lesser extent, gaps in jobs pecific technical skills. The enhanced K-12 program, or the Department of Education’s(DepEd) proposal to overhaul the basic and secondary education curriculum by adding two more years to the system is arguably one of the most drastic and controversial programs of the Aquino administration. Maramag, 2011 quoted that the K-12 model to be implemented in the country is an educational system for basic and secondary education patterned after the United States, Canada, and some parts of Australia. The current basic education system is also an archetype of American schooling but with a10-year cycle. DepEd reasons that it is high time to adopt a K-12 system, attributing the low achievement scores and poor quality of basic education to the present school setup. Following wide protests......

Readiness of Inosloban Marawoy National High School for the Implementation of Shs

...Education as part of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III’s Educational Reform Program was the instituting of the K – 12 Education Plan. From his 10 point Educational agenda he cited: 12 – Years Basic Education Cycle I will expand the basic education cycle, from a 10 year cycle to a globally comparable 12 years, for our public school children. At present, those who can afford basic education get into the best universities and the best jobs after graduation. Universal preschooling for all public schools children will have preschool as their introduction to formal schooling by 2016, and we will make this available to all children regardless of income. The Pnoy Administration believes that adding more years to basic education in the Philippines could help solve the problems of unemployment, keep with global standards, and help Pilipino students to have more time to choose the career that best suits their skills. Psychologically speaking, the short education program affects human development of the Pilipino children. A Pilipino is legally a child before he or she turns 18 years old. Psychologists and educators say that children under 18 are generally not emotionally prepared for entrepreneurship or employment or higher education disciplines. Commonly, Grade six pupils graduate at the age ranging from 11-13 years old, and fourth year high school students graduates at the range of 15-17 years old. Therefore, these learners are still considered children and they......

...RENAISSANCE LEADERSHIP Transforming Leadership for the 21st Century J. Martin Hays and Choule Youn Kim THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY Key Words: |Leadership |Management Education |Future Trends | |Leadership Development |The New Millennium |Leadership Competencies | ABSTRACT Conventional leaders and leadership of the past are insufficient to meet the demands of the 21st Century. As we enter the new millennium, our world is characterised by unprecedented complexity, paradox, and unpredictability. Change is rapid and relentless. Today’s leaders face demands unlike any ever before faced. Standard leadership approaches that have served us well throughout much of history are quickly becoming liabilities. Conventional wisdom regarding leadership and many of its habits must be unlearned. The strong, decisive, charismatic, and independent leader and leadership we have idealised, strived to be, depended upon, and longed for may prove counter-productive in the new millennium and undermine a sustainable future. The challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century call for a new type of leader and leadership, indeed an entirely new and different way of thinking about leadership and of developing future leaders. This paper explores the nature of the nascent millennium and the leader and leadership qualities and......

Vision and Mission Statement

...An organization’s mission statement is its reason for existence. It often reflects the core values and beliefs of the upper management in an organization. A mission statement is the broad definition of the organizational mission. It is sometimes referred to as a creed, purpose, or statement of corporate philosophy and values. A good mission statement inspires employees and provides a focus and direction for setting lower level objectives. It guides employees in making decisions and establishes what the organization does. Mission statements are crucial for organizations to prosper and grow. Its primary purpose is to guide the entrepreneur and assist in refining the planning process. By developing a strategic plan that incorporates the mission statement, entrepreneurs are more likely to be successful and stay focused on what is important. Vision is the foundation for the mission statement. The vision provides a strategic direction, which is the springboard for the mission and its related goals. A vision statement differs from a mission statement. Vision statements are a view of what an organization is striving to become. They guide an organization into the future while mission statements are a reflection of the present. Organizations go through many changes and can face times of confusion and uncertainty. Changes are not always expected or easy, so a well thought out vision statement will help everyone stay focused and meet the organization's goals. In this fast changing......
