School Monitoring, Evaluation, and Adjustment (SMEA)

R.A. 9155 clearly defines shared governance as the management model in the delivery of quality basic education. It specifies the functional areas to be shared by the various levels of management as well as their differentiated roles. The evolving roles of the schools are consistent with the national educational policies, plans and standards.
