The PEAC invites eligible ESC-participating schools to send letters of intent to participate in the Coaching for Results in Education, or CoRE. CoRE is a program that supports ESC schools in their preparation for the recertification revisit by providing assistance that covers the engagement of school coaches from the Kaagapay Program of the Phoenix Educational Foundation.

The PEAC has approved the allocation of 20 slots or 10 slots per school category in the initial year of implementation. CoRE will provide a financial assistance of Php50,000 per grantee-school to cover the engagement of Kaagapay coaches in one school year that the schools participate in CoRE.

The Kaagapay Program fields school coaches who are expert practitioners and leaders in education to work with private schools that have been accepted into the program in the following: pursuance of data-based school improvement that impacts students’ learning; on-track implementation of recommendations and the School Improvement Plan (SIP); results-based management in monitoring outcomes in key result areas; and cost-effective management of human and material resources.

The PEAC National Secretariat will send a formal communication to the eligible ESC schools based on the criteria indicated in the guidelines. The qualified schools are required to send a letter of intent to participate in the CoRE Program addressed to the PEAC Executive Director. The letter should be emailed to [email protected] with “CoRE Batch 1 – [Name of Institution]” as subject of the email. The PEAC National Secretariat will accept letters of intent no later than June 18, 2021.
