Sharing Innovation in Junior Secondary Education
Supporting Sustainability of Achievements
Representatives from the DBE partner districts, including students, were given the opportunity to communicate their achievements, as well as their plans to ensure the sustainability of change and ways to achieve more positive changes.
DELEGATES from 44 districts and 6 provinces met in Solo on 19 and 20 July 2011 to report the progress of the DBE3 program in their districts as well as their plans for future activities. This is important as the DBE3 program is ending in December 2011 and provincial level activities will end in October 2011. A range of changes and improvements in schools were presented by delegates from the districts to around 350 people who attended the meeting. Plans
Plans to disseminate DBE3 programs were also explained, such as that of the North Sumatra Education Office, who have set aside a budget of 3.5 billion Rupiah to disseminate DBE3 programs. Delegates from North Sumatra also explained their strategic plan to ensure the sustainability of program achievements.
School principals, teachers, even students also had the chance to present the positive changes observed in their schools. "This achievement needs to be sustained," said Pak Irfan, principal of MTsN Binamu, South Sulawesi, whose school has changed dramatically following their partnership with DBE3.
Performance Improvements Maintained during 2011
RESULTS of Monitoring completed in DBE3 partner schools between 2009 - 2011 showed visible improvements on almost all indicators.
Improvements observed in 2010 were maintained in 2011, both in teaching and learning and in school management. The impact of the program on the National Examination (UN) between 2008 and 2010 was also positive. More on this on pages 2 and 3.
Thank You and Best Wishes for the Future
THE DBE Program will end in December 2011. We, the DBE3 staff, wish to thank all provinces, districts and partner schools, institutions and other parties involved, for their cooperation over the last 6 years. We would also like to congratulate everyone on their achievements and hope that this is only the start of a lasting change.
Training Modules and 'Good Practices' Books
WE have completed our BTL training modules and are in the process of publishing the final version. We have also developed a number of books on 'Good Practices' which cover Management of Change in Schools and teaching the five core curriculum subjects.
These modules and books will be distributed to all the institutions and districts involved in DBE3, as well as district facilitators. We hope that the books and modules will be useful for future reference
