This study aimed to determine the extent of awareness of the School Heads and Teachers on DepEd Order No. 40, S. 2012, otherwise known as the Child Protection Policy, of which result served as basis in the formulation of a program design. The study focused on the proper protocol in handling child abuse cases as well as the duties and responsibilities of the school heads, teachers and guidance counselors. The study made use of the descriptive-correlational research design. With reference to the measurement of the extent of awareness of school heads and teachers relative to the Child Protection Policy, a researcher-made tool was utilized. The respondents of the study are the secondary school heads and teachers in the Division of Dumaguete City. School heads were taken universally while teacher-respondents were subjected to sampling. The study utilized weighted mean, chi-square and test for its statistical treatment. The findings revealed that school heads and teachers are “Very Aware” of their duties and responsibilities relative to the Child Protection Policy except on the composition of the CPP and the proper protocol in handling child abuse cases which they claimed that they are not fully aware of. School heads and teachers differ significantly in their extent of awareness of the CPP revealing a higher degree of awareness on the part of the school heads. The respondents’ profile in terms of educational qualification and plantilla position is significantly related to their extent of awareness of the CPP except for age and sex which were found insignificant.
