The Supreme Court already declared that public schools supervisors do not have administrative supervision over school heads

The Supreme Court recently declared that public schools supervisors do not have administrative supervision over school heads.

In a 32-page decision penned by Justice Romeo J. Callejo, Sr., the Court upheld the validity of Section 4.3 of Rule IV and Sections 5.1 and 5.2 of Rule V of the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of RA 9155 or the “Governance of Basic Education Act 2001” providing for the powers of schools division superintendents and public schools supervisors and the establishment of new school districts, respectively. It held that the assailed provisions were a mere reiteration and implementation of RA 9155.

“We have reviewed the IRR and find that Section 4.3 of Rule IV, and Sections 5.1 and 5.2 of Rule V are valid. The provisions merely reiterate and implement the related provisions of R.A. No. 9155. x x x Thus, under R.A. No. 9155, administrative supervision over school heads is not one of those responsibilities conferred on district supervisors,” the Court said. It added that while the district supervisor is given a support staff for program promotion, it cannot be implied that the district supervisor likewise has administrative supervision over elementary school principals and secondary school principals.
