Dads want incentives to cover all HS studes
by Jordan G. Habbiling / PIO

The city council is proposing for the amendment of the ordinance providing for incentive allowance to qualified students of Baguio City National High School (BCNHS) and Pines City National High School (PCNHS).

The proposed amendment came right after the conduct of the legislative monitoring and evaluation of Ordinance 110-88 (as amended) by the Research Division of the Sangguniang Panlungsod ng Baguio.

Heeding the comments and recommendations given by Budget Officer Leticia Clemente, BCNHS principal Brenda Cariño, school head Whitney Dawayen, and then Schools Superintendent Federico Martin, the legislators are proposing the revision of some sections of the ordinance.

Upon the approval of the amendment, the name of the ordinance will be changed to “The Baguio Public Schools’ Incentive Fund Ordinance.” The phrase “at Baguio City National High School and Pines City National High School” as repeatedly mentioned in Section 2 will be changed to “at any public school within Baguio City.”

Under the amendatory ordinance, students at any public school within the city enrolled in a special science class, a special program in journalism, and a special program in the arts will be included as recipients of the incentive allowance.

Students who become members of the Supreme Pupil Government and Supreme Student Government will also be beneficiaries of such grant.

Further, students who “represent the city and won any Department of Education-recognized/endorsed competition in the regional, national, or international level” in the following categories will receive corresponding monthly allowance:

Special Science Programs and Special Program in the Arts – P500; Special Program for Sports and Athletes – P400; school paper staffer – P400; band members – P400; honor students (first place) – P300; and honor pupils (grade 1 to 6) – P400.

Dawayen earlier commented that the ordinance does not allow the grant of double or multiple incentives which discourages students to excel in various categories. Under the proposed amendatory ordinance, students will be allowed to receive more than one incentive if they qualify in other categories to encourage them to expand their interest in other fields and enhance their other skills.

The amendatory ordinance also suggests the possible creation of a formula “increasing the incentive allowances granted under the ordinance taking into consideration the prevailing inflation rates and economic conditions.”

The proposed measure was approved on first reading during the city council’s regular session and was referred to the committee on laws, human rights, and justice for further study and recommendations.
