Marieto Cleben V. Lozada



This study determined the relationship between the family, individual, community and school (FICS) related factors and student outcomes of the Pantawid Program recipients in Surigaodel Sur Division public high schools. The quantitative descriptive correlational research design was used in this study. A total of 267 Pantawid Program student recipients from three public high schools in the Division of Surigao del Sur were chosen as respondents using the purposive sampling technique. Mean and standard deviation were used to assess the extent of the effect of factors and the level of outcomes of the 4P’s recipients. The Pearson Product-Moment Correlation was used to determine the relationship between these factors and student outcomes in terms of academic performance and attendance rates. Independent t-test and analysis of variance were used to test the differences in student outcomes when respondents were analyzed according to profile. This study utilized an innovated researcher-made questionnaire anchored on the DepEd Dropout Reduction Program (SDORP) material to measure the extent of effect of FICS related factors. The results revealed that the extent of effect of FICS related factors on student outcomes was very low. Meanwhile, the level of Pantawid student outcomes in terms of academic performance and attendance rates were high. On the other hand, there was a significant difference in student outcomes as analyzed according to sex and grade level of the respondents. In terms of gender, boys performed much better than girls in terms of academic performance.
