SDO SAN JUAN CITY FORGES PRODUCTIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH THE POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES
“Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” - Henry Ford
The partnership of the SDO San Juan City and the Polytechnic University of the Philippines grew stronger as the two educational entities forged another partnership with the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) about Project “FORTH” last May 15, 2019 at the SDO San Juan Conference Room.
The historic event accentuated not only the research goals of the smallest division in the National Capital Region but also catalyzed the move to concretize the implementation of the Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers (PPST) as Project “FORTH” is clearly aligned with the PPST Domains such as Content Knowledge and Pedagogy, Learning Environment, Diversity of Learners, Curriculum and Planning, assessment and Reporting, Community Linkages and Professional Engagement and Personal Growth and Personal Development.
Project “FORTH” aims to develop a network of Higher Education Institutions, associations and stakeholders creating a system of quality, motivation and support to teacher training in a number of emerging challenged areas in the Philippines that could serve as a model of teachers training for similar contexts in the world. SDO San Juan City was just so lucky to be chosen as partner division in the National Capital Region (NCR) with three pilot Elementary Schools participating- Pinaglabanan ES, San Perfecto ES and Salapan ES.
Initially, three (3) teachers from the respective partner elementary schools will be attending the Trainers’ Training at the University of Southern Philippines in Davao City this coming June 09 to 14, 2019. These lucky teachers are Ms. Magdalena S. Rosopa, MT II from PES, Ms. Lucila G. Antalio, MT I from SES, and MRS.Virginia R. Lopez, T II from SPES.
Goodluck and make SDO San Juan City SHINE!
