The Senior High School Support Program

The Philippine Government has partnered with the Asian Development Bank (ADB) through the Senior High School Support Program (SHSSP) to support in the full implementation of the Senior High School (SHS) Program of the K to 12 Basic Education reform.

Funded through a Results-based Lending (RBL) modality, this US$ 300 million1 support program covers both the 2014-2015 preparatory phases and the 2016-2019 implementation phase of the K to 12 reform, specifically the Senior High School Program. Through an RBL model, drawdowns can only be made when pre-identified results or Disbursement-Linked Indicators (DLIs) are accomplished or met.

Under this support program, the Department of Education (DepEd) will be implementing the agreed DLIs while a focal unit established within DepEd will undertake monitoring- and support-related responsibilities.

As of January 1, 2016, DepEd has achieved six (6) DLIs of the SHSSP. This covers all four (4) DLIs for 2014 and two (2) for 2015. The corresponding total disbursement is US$ 30.83 million.
