Capitol, DepEd to launch School Heads Academy batch 2 at USLS

The University of St. La Salle, in partnership with the Department of Education, signed new agreements with the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental on March 5 at USLS for study grants to public school heads through the Provincial School Heads Academy.

USLS President Br. Joaquin Severino Martinez represented the University in the signing of the MOA with Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson and Schools Division Superintendent Anthony Liobet.

Under this scholarship program for qualified teachers, the grantees will enroll in a three-semester program at USLS in July and will receive a Certificate in Educational Administration and Supervision.

The Provincial School Heads Academy aims to develop the competencies of school heads and improve the quality of education in public schools.

Previously, a batch of 63 scholars graduated from the program last January.

Governor Lacson, in a statement, hopes that this program will help address the needs of the educational system by equipping school heads with the necessary skills.

“This landmark scholarship initiative reflects our shared vision of a future where our schools are led by individuals equipped with the skills and passion necessary to make our educational system responsive to the needs of a rapidly changing and evolving world,” Governor Lacson said.

Also present during the MOA signing, among many others, were University administrators along with Negros Occidental Scholarship Program Head Karen Dinsay.
