Abstract


This descriptive survey research sought to identify the instructional leadership needs of school administrators in the Schools Division of Meycauayan City and these instructional leadership needs served as the basis of a need-driven leadership development program for school heads.

This study is grounded on the Theory of Supervisory Practice of Sergiovanni (1985). This theory is designed to improve instruction and the quality of classroom life through the integration of scientific, artistic, and clinical supervision methods.

The school administrators’ instructional leadership competencies were assessed through the National Competency-Based Standards for School Heads (NCBSSH). The data gathered were analyzed using the SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) program to obtain research statistics. Descriptive test, specifically the Mean was used to describe the instructional leadership experience, educational preparation and instructional leadership competencies of school heads.

All the school heads need training in the instructional leadership domain. They are doing all the competencies but they need to improve on all the indicators of the mentioned domain.
