Asian Journal of Education and Social Studies,
Using the non-experimental descriptive survey research design this study aimed to investigate the level of the clinical supervisory skills of the public elementary school heads as perceived by district supervisors. Eventually came up with a district-based LAC session which addressed the grey areas found in this study. Using the universal sampling this study was conducted on all public elementary and secondary schools in the division of Davao del Sur. This study utilized the researcher-made questionnaire which items focused on the supervisory skills, the Cronbach Alpha was tested to assess its validity and reliability. This study revealed that the school heads from both elementary and secondary frequently used the process in conducting clinical supervision. Moreover, this study further revealed that there were locations wherein school heads got low specifically in the art of questioning the teacher to draw his/her instructional problem. Classroom teachers should have encouraged learners to join co-curricular activities and tap stakeholders to financially support the learners who opted to join co-curricular activities.
