SUMMARY OF A CCOMPLISHMENT R EPORT ON I NSTRUCTIONAL S UPERVISION ( ARIS ) FORMS SY 2013-2014 A. ELEMENTARY LEVEL. B. SECONDARY LEVEL.
ANALYSIS/INTERPRETATION: School Heads were more focused on instructional supervision during the first semester than in the second semester, probably attributed to the prevalence of more co-curricular activities from October to December. However, in January most school heads were once again focused on instructional supervision in preparation for the National Achievement Test (which includes review, remedial, enhancement classes).In February and March, the busiest months, majority of the school heads failed to submit the ARIS forms since this period is very close to the NAT schedule and for the Graduation preparations.
AGREEMENT: * ARIS forms should be submitted every 1st Friday of the month* ARIS form 1 should be accomplished by school headsARIS form 2 should be accomplished by PSDSs/EPSs* There should be a summary of ARIS Forms 1 in the district* ARIS form 1 should be supported by a Monthly Schedule for Instructional Supervision
COMMON OBSERVATIONS: Merits/Good Points:1. Some school heads submitted ARIS forms on time/ahead of deadline.2. There were school heads who submitted ARIS Forms with Monthly Schedule for Instructional Supervision (e.g. Mrs. Tiamzon for the month September)3. There was notable congruence between the domains observed and the technical assistance extended in most reports.4. It was also noted that there were school heads who really spent time in accomplishing the ARIS forms as shown by their good personal comments.5. Generally, there was an improvement in the instructional supervision among school heads compared to the previous school year as evidenced by their ARIS reports.
Demerits/Areas for Improvements1. Based on records, most reports were submitted late.Some school heads did not meet the target number of teachers to be observed in a day (at least ATAD).2. Consolidated reports showed that some school heads did not submit ARIS Form 1 in the districts.3. There were instances when consolidated district reports did not have a summary of ARIS forms 14. Some ARIS Forms I were just “copy paste” from the previous reports.5. One district submitted very early report; ARIS forms to be submitted should be for the month of October, but the PSDS already submitted ARIS form for November (one month advance) . Schools visited were not yet indicated.
Suggestions/Recommendations:1. Constant follow-up for early submission of ARIS forms.2. Observance of at least one teacher a day for small schools, and two or three teachers for big schools.3. Inclusion of other areas of concern of instructional supervision like checking of competencies taught for the month/grading period, curriculum/teacher’s/learner’s guide, periodic test items, facilitation of the preparation for instructional materials etc., and “not purely class observations”.4. Issuance of a memorandum to those who would fail to submit ARIS forms after one month of delay in submission.5. Honesty in accomplishing the ARIS forms, above all “COMMITMENT” in the performance of our job.
