Abstract

The primary aim of the study was to examine the alignment of school-heads trainings and seminars with that of their professional development needs as school administrators. Such findings would then be utilized in order to come up with pertinent policy recommendations, which could be the basis in coming up with strategic plan, for more effective impact of trainings and seminars that the Department of Education would be extending to the school-heads in the City Schools Division of Cagayan de Oro. The scope of this study was limited to seventy elementary level school-heads in the City Schools Division of Cagayan de Oro. The research was descriptive and correlational in nature. Structured questionnaires were used for gathering information about school-heads professional development needs. This was correlated with that of their perceived agreement as to the relevance of trainings they attended relative to their role and functions as school administrators. The findings have shown that trainings and seminars conducted were aligned with the professional development needs of the school heads as they perform their roles and functions. However, not all topics in the trainings conducted were able to address the desired competencies. It was also found out that although there is alignment of the trainings and seminars, there is still a need to consult and summarize their professional development needs in identifying topics for trainings conducted at different levels. The proposed training design for school heads shall be checked, monitored and evaluated by the Performance Management Team (PMT) as to alignment of topics to the professional development needs.
