Student incentive ordinance of Baguio passes evaluation
by Jordan G. Habbiling

The ordinance providing for incentive allowance to qualified students of the Baguio City National High School (BCNHS) and Pines City National High School (PCNHS) passed the evaluation of the Legislative Monitoring and Evaluation Section (LMES) of the Sangguniang Panlungsod.

According to the status report, Ordinance 110-88, as amended, is being implemented by the concerned schools.

Concerned offices, however, made some suggestions to further improve the ordinance and strengthen its implementation.

Under the ordinance, qualified students are granted P100 per month each for 10 months corresponding to the school year.

To qualify, the student at the BCNHS/PCNHS or their respective annexes should belong to any of the following classifications: those who have completed their elementary education at the head of their respective classes; those who have finished at the head of either the first, second, and third year classes (grades 7, 8, and 9 in the K-12 curriculum) upon re-enrollment in the same school; athletes at the beginning of the school year who are certified full-fledged members of the region’s delegation to any national meet the previous school year; members of the school band or orchestra; elected and appointed editors-in chief, assistant editors-in-chief, and managing editors of their respective school paper organizations; and students in the special science classes at the BCNHS.

City Budget Officer Leticia Clemente apprised the SP of some adjustments considered by the City Budget Office relative to the ordinance.

She reported that additional beneficiaries had been included in the appropriation starting 2012 and every year thereafter, such as honor pupils in their classes from grades 1 to 6 amounting to P400 per month for each school year.

She added that the incentive granted to students belonging to the various programs increased from P100 to an amount from P300 to P500 depending on the category of the special program.

BCNHS principal Brenda Cariño recommended, among others, the inclusion of students of BCNHS’ Special Programs in Journalism, Arts, and Sports, and winners of other regional and national competitions as beneficiaries.

She also proposed the formulation of a mechanism that includes factors affecting the value of the incentives given to beneficiaries.

PCNHS head Whitney Dawayen suggested that students be allowed to receive more than one incentive if they qualify in other categories to encourage them to expand their interest in other fields and enhance their other skills.

Dr. Federico Martin, then schools division superintendent of the Department of Education-City Division, suggested changing the phrase “the BCNHS and the PCNHS” to “all public schools within the city” in all the sections of the ordinance; and the phrase “at the head of his class” to “with honors at the end of the school year.”

Members of the Supreme Pupil Government and Supreme Student Government were also recommended as recipients of the student allowance.
