DepEd Guidelines on Conducting a Project for Innovation in School

Innovation is the introduction of new ideas, goods, services, and practice which are intended to be useful. It could address gaps on access, quality and relevance and governance or management of education service, such as: increase enrolment/participation rate and reduce drop-out, and failure rates; improve academic performance, and enhance learning environment/improve physical facilities. It could be a product of contextualization and indigenization.

Who will innovate?

Teachers, Master Teachers, Head Teachers, Principals, and Non-teaching personnel.

Project Classification

  1. Access
  2. Quality and Relevance
  3. Governance

Note: All project proposals related to DepEd’s current projects and programs are not necessarily to be approved as innovation for these are embodied in the SIP/AIP of the school.

Examples: Gulayan sa Paaralan, Pera sa Basura, Construction of school fence, footwalk, school gate, parks, water supply/hand washing facilities, and playground amenities.

  1. How to make an innovation project like gulayan sa paaralan sir? and of course a research proposal on reading for those non-readers in the primary? I would like to request also a sample of innovations that can be our guide in crafting innovations. Thank you sir. God bless.

  2. Thank you sir for sharing your expertise. I would to request a sample of innovations are our guide in crafting innovations. God bless you sir.

  3. Yes…may we know the legal basis and different issuances in support to the format and in in making a project proposal or innovation? Thank you…

  4. I Think “Gulayan sa Paaralan” sa paaralan cannot be a Innovation Project since it is national program and an amount is allocated for the purpose

  5. What is the legal basis for the DepEd Income Generating Project, specifically the law from which a specific DepEd Order or Memo is issued? Thank you
