School Principals to be trained on bookeeping

The Education Chief mentioned that school principals are currently being trained to manage cash and other resources in line with the department's thrust to make school heads better managers. "Our principals must have the knowhow on resources management including bookkeeping or understand what is the 'bottom line' when budget preparation time comes around," said Lapus.

Lapus has instituted various reforms that resulted to improved administrative procedures and imbued school heads with financial know-how to better manage their schools.

He also disclosed that "procedures and guidelines on Records Management, Property Acquisition, and Disaster Risk Reduction have also been manualized to avoid ad-hoc solutions, influence peddling, and other unethical practices."

The manual will standardize handling of official records like report cards, student profiles, and teacher records. This will ensure that personnel movement caused by promotions, transfers, and retirements will not in any way affect operation of schools.

Among the department's accomplishments include the newly-instituted procurement system with more effective checks and balances. DepEd's National Textbook Delivery Program has been cited by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) – an international forum of donor governments and multilateral organizations including the United Nations and World Bank.
