Management of Educational Services The Division Education Development Plan is the main vehicle through which the Division of Bataan can effectively and efficiently manage education service in the elementary, secondary, and Alternative Learning System (ALS). The plan is carefully structured to focus on Key National goals, EFA goals and division goals. The six – year plan was crafted and enhanced following the phases in the formulation and implementation of the Division Education Development Plan known as the “D” Process to wit: 1) Analyzing the Situation 2) Strategic Planning 3) Planning and Gearing for Implementation 4) Submitting for quality assurance 5) Communicating the Plan 6) Implementing the Plan 7) Monitoring and Evaluating the Plan. Consistent with the provisions of RA 9155, the formulation of the DEDP recognizes a highly participatory process that builds and harnesses the partnership between the division and its stakeholders.

The Schools Division Superintendent provides leadership and guidance to the regular and “on call members” of the DPC in its effort to accomplish the tasks.
