UICS PASBE’s Pilot School in Region 1

The Urdaneta I Central School, APPES (Accreditation Program for Public Elementary School)  Level I accredited school, was chosen from among all public and private schools in Region I; and one of the twelve pilot schools nationwide for recognition by the Philippine Accreditation System for Basic Education (PASBE). The on-site visit took place from Jan. 16 -20.


The accreditation, as mandated by the Philippine Constitution of 1987 Basic Education Act of 2002 and Republic Act 9155, otherwise known as Governance of Basic Education Act of 2002, aims to improve the learning performance and teacher/facilitator teaching-learning competencies of the school chosen. The evaluation and the term of accreditation granted depend on the consistency between the school’s professed purpose and what it actually practices.


Dr. Mario E. Campilla, UICS Principal IV, assigned teachers to assist the seven-man PASBE Team comprised of education program supervisors from different schools around the country. They began the on-site visit touring around checking on the physical facet of the school. After which was a careful and rigorous review of the artifacts presenting the school’s different programs, paramount practices and accomplishments.


Dr. Rhodora V. Sison, PASBE Team Leader, emphasized that the artifacts must be Relevant, Correct, Current and Accurate. The evaluators were guided by a set of guide questions to help them determine the consistency of practices matched by evidences in achieving UICS’ purpose. Evaluation was based according to six standards as indicated in the PASBE Handbook such as Vision/Mission and Purpose, School Leadership and Governance, Curriculum and Instruction, Resources and Management, Utilization of Assessment Results and School-Community Partnership. Apart from these they also spent more time in meaningful discussion, observation and interaction around the school. They interviewed the different school’s stakeholders – FPTA Officials and members, Supreme Pupil Government (SPG) Officers, Teachers’ Club officers and members, representatives from religious sector, non-government units, alumni, pupils and others who can attest to the school’s stand whether it lives and operates according to its written vision/mission. They even had a chance to visit and had a dialogue with Urdaneta City Mayor Amadeo Gregorio E. Perez IV and City Administrator Ronald San Juan who assured that the school’s land title transfer from its donor is already on the process and be turned over to the school the soonest possible time.


After careful scrutiny on the artifacts presented, the accreditors extended technical help and gave more suggestions on how to prepare and further improve the system of documentation of the school’s best practices. The accrediting team pointed out their observations, some of which were first-rate points and some were indicators for improvement. They commended the evident collaboration among stakeholders in the implementation of programs and varied activities that may lead to the realization of the school’s ultimate goal—quality education.


Another set of accreditors/evaluators will be visiting the school come June for the final validation.
