Last February 12, 2019 at the Hotel Benilde Maison De La Salle, the PEAC invited administrators from different SHS providers for a survey and focus group discussion on the implementation of the senior high school program. The survey and FGD were conducted as part of the DepEd-PEAC commissioned research on developing a certification instrument for SHS providers.

The researchers of the study are Dr. Miguel Q. Rapatan, Faculty at the Department of Communication of De La Salle University, and Dr. Ma. Helena Desiree Terre, former Vice President for Academic Affairs of the Colegio Del Sagrado De Jesus and Colegio De San Jose.
