Looking back, and moving forward – such was the leitmotif for the conduct of the 2017 Performance Review cum Preparation of Plans and Calendar of Activities for SY 2018 held at the Teacher Development Center on January 4-5, 2017.
Dr. Amelita P. Givertz, Chief PPRD, said that this two-day workshop had the following objectives: to revisit the Regional Basic Education Development Plan (RBEDP) 2017-2022 as implemented in 2017, to present the CY 2017 performance of each functional division (FD) of the regional office in view of improving their respective Key Result Areas (KRAs), as well as to collaborate and formulate each division’s Annual Investment Plan (AIP), Office Performance Contract Review (OPCR), and Calendar of Activities for 2018.
In her welcome address, Dr. Fidela M. Rosas, OIC-Assistant Regional Director, emphasized that the various programs, projects, and activities under Project CLEAR were already incorporated into the current Project ROCKERS, which was formally launched by OIC-Regional Director Dr. Beatriz G. Torno, CESO IV, last December 21, 2017 at the Balanghai Hotel in Butuan City.

“We have to check our work plans. Kita may nag himo sa atong work plans and we don’t need to compare our performance with others. Let’s increase our performance based on our targets. Kung taas ang target, dapat doable,” Rosas further explained.
Rosas also encouraged the focal persons to be fully knowledgeable on the legal utilization of the SAROs (Special Allotment Release Order), asserting that “an activity well planned is an activity half done.”
During the sessions, the chiefs of functional divisions and the unit heads under the office of the regional director took turns in presenting their performance review based on the template provided by the PPRD (Policy, Planning, and Research Division).

Dr. Rosas stayed throughout the presentation process, ably guiding the presenters with her remarks, suggestions, and recommendations aimed at improving everyone’s performance for 2018.
