B. The Problem-causes and effects

P. Villanueva Elementary school believes that a school to be effective must have facilities that is responsive to the changing needs of time and at a minimum should provide a physical environment that is comfortable, safe, secure, accessible, well illuminated, well ventilated and aesthetically pleasing. School facility consists not only the physical structure and the variety of building systems but also includes furnishings, materials and supplies, equipment and information technology. This program was conceived on the desire to improve school facilities in order to address the needs of the 21st century learners. Thus, collaborative effort have helped this project run through by converging with the communities and soliciting donations and sponsorships from generous stakeholders and other companies. Because we believe that the condition and sufficiency of school facilities not only influences student achievement, but can also influence the work and effectiveness of a teacher.

Moreover, this project not only zero in on the KPIs under governance but also, quality and access. Through this, improvement of the academic performance of the learners is also targeted as well their attendance rate.

 Table 1 shows the data of the school facilities, equipment and materials for the three consecutive years. It can be gleaned that the number of school facilities equipment and materials are in increasing trend. The great changes in the number of needed facilities are the result of good partnership and strong linkages with the community stakeholders, benefactors and other sponsors. The established long term partnership obtained positive results.

It can also be seen that for three SY, we surpassed our target quantity of the school facilities/learning equipment by 24%, 15% and 50% respectively. This tremendous increase have contributed to the teachers’ effectiveness and learners’ improved academic performance. Utilization of these acquired/donated school facilities/learning equipment aids the teachers in making their instructions more interesting and meaningful. Learners’ enthusiasm is also observed through their high attendance rate of 99.68%.  Likewise, learners’ usage increased retention and mastery level.

Table 2 displays the weighted mean of the respondents’ perception on the sufficiency and impact of the school facilities, equipment and materials on learners’ academic performance. Each indicator is translated in Filipino for better understanding by our learner-respondents and parent-respondents. It can be gleaned that the grand weighted mean is 4.14, interpreting, it denotes that all the three groups of respondents agreed that the sufficiency of school facilities has an impact on learners’ academic performance. The teacher- respondents obtained a weighted mean of 4.34 (A) and surprisingly, the learner-respondents and parent-respondents attained the same weighted mean of 4.03 (A).

The table further reveals that item statement no.8 ranked the highest weighted mean of 4.71, the three groups of respondents strongly agreed that the sufficiency of classrooms aids learners in their learning. Statement no. 12 ranked 2nd with a weighted mean of 4.59 and interpreted as Strongly Agree, this implies that everyone accepts that a clean and safe environment helps and inspires learners to study, statement no.10 ranked 3rd,, with a weighted mean of 4.55(SA), this hints that respondents specially the parents perceived that enough number of toilets for boys and for girls could impact their children’s studies. Item statements no. 1a and 1b follow with weighted mean of 4.41 and 4.37 respectively and both interpreted as Agree.

Statement no. 4, School facilities are appropriate for 21st century learning needs garnered the lowest rank with a weighted mean of 2.77 (N), this is due to the very low weighted (1.2, SD) by parent respondents which indicates that parents awareness on the provision and utilization of the technology in the teaching and learning process is limited .This is followed by statement no.2 with a weighted mean of 3.55(A). The rest of the item statements have weighted means ranging from 4.0-4.32 which indicate that respondents accepted and agreed that school facilities have impact in the learners’ academic performance.

Table 3 depicts the comparative analysis of the periodic evaluation of learning outcomes for the school year 2018-2019 and 2019-2020. It can be shown that the academic performance of the learners improved with an increment of 7.77%. This only proves that school facilities affect learners ‘academic performance.

This claim is supported by testing the correlation between the physical accomplishments and the academic performance of our learners’ Periodic Evaluation of Learning Outcomes using Spearman Rank Correlation. The Sr computed value is 0.70.

Using the table below, we can say that the two variables have strong relationship.

F. Recommendations

 

Based on the findings, the following are recommended:

 

  1. School personnel need to work hand in hand in providing and upgrading

    school facilities to meet up with the changing times. Digital/ICT facilities and     

    internet connection must be provided.

  1. Sustain linkages with the community stakeholders and possible donors in the

    provision and   maintenance of the school facilities.

  1. Parents’ orientation on the availability and appropriateness of the school facilities

              for 21st century learning needs must be intensified.

 

  1. Teachers utilization of these school facilities must be sustained for real life learning

              experiences.

 

  1. Learners must be taught to be responsible in using school facilities to prolong the

              usage and for damage prevention.

G. Comments of the School Head

School facilities play a vital role in the effective and efficient performance of teachers. If there is sufficient/adequate number of teaching-learning facilities that teachers can use, then they will be more inspired in doing their work .This would eventually result to positive impact to the learners’ academic performance.

Likewise, in order to facilitate high level of teaching and learning process, there is need for well-planned and organized school facilities. A conducive teaching and learning environment is important to the quality of teachers engaged in the inculcation of desired attributes to the learners. Furthermore, the impact of environment on teaching and learning to be effective, the school building and its surroundings must be clean, safe and free from hazards. Sufficiency of school facilities such as Computer sets, digital materials, TV /LCD monitors, cooking equipment, ventilation equipment and the like must always be given importance. There is a need for the school to look for generous partners that could donate and fund the procurement of these school facilities.

Now on its third year of implementation, our program boasts its accomplishments as shown in our learners’ academic achievement, teachers’ competence as seen in their IPCRF ratings, the school’s improved facilities (quality and quantity) acquired through linkages and partnerships, the greening of surroundings, its cleanliness, safety and security. Indeed the uniqueness of our project is clearly shown when it targeted the three KPIs namely governance, quality and access.

The effectiveness, sustainability, transferability and acceptability of our program can be best shown with the following documents/narratives/pictures and other MOVs.
