Christopher J Cocal, Gertrudes Marcellano
The implementation of K+12 means larger budget for the Department of Education and more expenditure for the families who will be sending their children to school. K+12 is not only an issue of economics, is more importantly an issue of personal and professional growth and development that will serve as catapult of economic development. This study determined the anticipatory resource management employed by the principals in the different schools of Pangasinan to ensure greater and successful implementation of the K+12 program. The respondents of the study were the 230 out of 539 principals of the different public elementary schools of the six schools divisions of Pangasinan. Results of the study show that the existing physical plant and facilities and instructional resources of the different public elementary schools in Pangasinan do not met the standard requirements set by the Department of Education. There is a great need for the schools to improve their physical facilities and instructional resources to effectively and efficiently implement the K+12 Program. Financial resource is the major problem of the schools with regards to the implementation of the K+12 Program.
