Abstract


This research study aimed to identify the school heads' profile and the association between the self-assessed and teacher-assessed school heads' leadership styles. It was tested on the 35 school heads and 315 public school teachers in the districts of Dimiao, Lila, Sevilla, Loboc, and Loay. It used a quantitative standardized survey instrument to determine the school heads' leadership styles. Findings revealed that school heads were mostly 41 to 60 years old, mainly female, mostly married, most had MA units, having Principal 1 designation, and had been in the service for 11 to 15 years. As assessed by the school heads themselves and the teachers, the majority of school leaders were going through a transition phase as to leadership styles, with a few using delegative and authoritarian styles, and none applied the participative style. Results revealed significant relationships between the self-assessed leadership styles and age and civil status, while statistically insignificant results in the relationship between the leadership styles and sex, educational attainment, designation, and length of service. As to the teacher-assessed leadership styles and the school heads' profile, the relationships were statistically insignificant. Furthermore, there was no association between the self-assessed and the teacher-assessed school heads' leadership styles.
