The Schools Division Office of Imus City, through the Planning and Research Section, conducted the 2nd Program Implementation Review (PIR) for FY 2018 and Strategic Planning for FY 2019 at One Tagaytay Hotel, Tagaytay City on November 13-14.

OIC-Schools Division Superintendent Hermogenes M. Panganiban spearheaded the review of the 2018 Annual Implementation Plan attended by 37 personnel from the Office of the SDS, Curriculum Implementation Division (CID) and the School Governance and Operations Division (SGOD).

In the two-day activity, SDS Panganiban stressed that day-to-day decisions should be aligned with the Medium Term and Division Education Development Plan.

Together, all division personnel reviewed the implementation of programs and projects for CY 2017 and 2018, identified programs and projects (PPs) based on SDOIC’s priority improvement areas, planned the strategic implementation of the PPs, finalized the annual implementation plan for 2019, and agreed to comply with all the requirements relative to procurement.

School heads also attended the said activity. They were Arturo P. Rosaroso Jr., Imus Nat’l HS; Lerma V Peña, Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo Nat’l HS; Jocelyn A. Limosinero, Imus Pilot ES; Cristy M. Ben, Malagasang II ES; and Ricardo R. David, Gen. Flaviano Yengko SHS serving as observers.


After the review, it was found out that 38 or 69.09% out of 55 projects were accomplished, 15 or 27.27% are still on-going and the other two or 3.65 are to be conducted this December.

On the other hand, 26 programs and 81 projects were identified and approved for implementation for FY 2019.

Program Procurement Management Plans were also formulated to specify what items and how items will be procured to complete them, along with the specific budget for each activity identified for the implementation of the projects.


The Schools Division Superintendent reminded each program owner to strategically and carefully plan priority projects that will address access to basic education, delivery of quality basic education services and its efficiency.

He instructed program owners to craft priority projects using the strategic planning framework developed by Dr. Eduardo Morato, the VMOKRAPIsSPATRes (Vision, Mission, Objectives, Key Result Areas, Performance Indicators, Strategies, Programs, Activities, Task and Resources).


SDS Panganiban also mentioned how the program implementation review and strategic planning serves as a reminder to all program owners that cautious and need-based project design is integral in the achievement of the Division’s goals.

“The implementation of projects, needs the involvement and support of each unit.  Calendar of activities should be plotted to avoid overlapping of schedule,” he said.

A quarterly programs and projects review is expected to be observed in SDO Imus City for FY 2019. (Matea Alvyn H. Trinidad and Marilou P. Bronzi)
