Schools in Sabah urged to achieve KPIs

KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Education Department director Datuk Maimunah Suhaibul urged schools in the state to boost efforts to achieve the five main Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of its Integrated Development Plan this year.

The five focus areas which are contained in the department’s Integrated Development Plan from 2017 until 2019 are academic management, school management, teacher management, student management and service management.

As such, Maimunah urged Sabah schools to improve their leadership elements as it was crucial in ensuring that the KPIs were achieved.

“For academic management, we aim to increase the KPI for the minimum mastery level for the 2018 Primary School Achievement Test (UPSR) to 61 per cent compared to 55 per cent last year.

Meanwhile, for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), we have set the state’s National Average Grade to 4.18 points and 2.80 ploints for the Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) examination.

“For school management, we aim to improve Band 1 and Band 2 schools.

Among the numerous strategies implemented included ensuring that the general guideline for the task implementation of principals/headmasters is mastered and the execution of ‘Standard Kualiti Pendidikan Malaysia Gelombang 2’ (SKPMG2) is applied to all school management aspects,” she said in her speech during the department’s 2018 New Year Message event.

For teacher management, Maimunah said all schools in the state were required to fufill a basic quota of 90:10 as this year the department aimed 90 per cent of its teachers to be Sabahans.
