School performance is based on the six dimensions of school-based management which are school leadership, internal stakeholders’ participation, external stakeholders’ participation, school-based resources, and school performance accountability. To measure the delivery of the six dimensions, this study was initiated. The performance of the elementary school heads of the districts of Borbon, Carmen, Catmon, Compostela, Liloan and Sogod were also included. The schools utilized were those elementary schools situated on the lowland areas and within the one-kilometer radius from the district office. Using the descriptive method of research, the study revealed that all the districts were on the level of SBM. On the other hand, all the 44 elementary school heads obtained Very Satisfactory ratings based on their Performance Appraisal system, taking into account their occupational competence, professional and personal characteristics, punctuality and attendance. All these were rated Very Satisfactory, except for punctuality and attendance which were rated Outstanding. Based on the results of the study, the school heads as school leaders had to exert more efforts on the stakeholders’ participation, school improvement process, and school performance accountability. They have to increase their occupational and professional competencies. To improve their management skills and performance, a technical Assistance Plan was developed
