Best Practices on School-Based Management (SBM)

In line with the Republic Act (RA) No. 10533 or the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013 that aims to further strengthen decentralization efforts at the school level, SDOs and schools are requested to submit implemented best practices on SBM.

The submission of best practices aims to identify the best practices implemented in the school on SBM.

Schools with SBM Level 2 of Practice are highly encouraged to share their best practices on SBM for possible benchmarking of other schools. Teachers, School Heads, and SDO personnel who will share their best practices or innovation will be recognized by DepEd.

This should provide the context of and justification for the practice, and address the following issues:

  • How did the problem impact on the school/SDO?


  • Which objectives were achieved?

Implementation of the Practice

  • What were the main activities carried out?
  • When and where were the activities carried out?
  • Who were the key implementers and collaborators?
  • When and where were the activities carried out?

Results of the Practice (Outputs and Outcomes)

  • What were the concrete results achieved concerning outputs and outcomes?
  • Was an assessment of the practice carried out? If yes, what were the results?

Lessons Learned/Insights

  • What worked well – what facilitated this?
  • What did not work – why did it not work?


  • How have the results benefited the school/SDO?
  • Why may that intervention be considered a “best practice“?
  • What recommendations can be made for those intending to adopt the documented “best practice” or how can it help people working on the same issue(s)?
