The main thrust of this study was to determine the Instructional Leadership Practices, Teachers’ Satisfaction and the School Performance Indicators and the relationship among these variables. The study was conducted to the thirty secondary schools having full-fledged principals in the Third Congressional District in Bohol. Randomly sampled two hundred eighty five (285) participants comprising 30 principals and the 255 teachers took part in the study. The data were subjected to statistical treatment using the weighted mean to assess the perception of the principals and the teachers about the Instructional Leadership Practices and the teachers’ satisfaction. Pearson Product Moment of Correlation was used to determine the significant relationship between the Instructional Leadership Practices and teachers’ satisfaction. Spearman Rank of Correlation was used to determine the significant relationship between the Instructional Leadership Practices and the school performance indicators. Four of the 10 items of instructional leadership practices were perceived by the principals and teachers as “Always” while 6 of the items were perceived as “Very Often”. Teachers are satisfied in terms of management and very satisfied with their work characteristics and interpersonal relationships. For school performance indicators, most of the respondents obtained a rating of “Outstanding” in terms of retention rate, completion rate, graduation rate, promotion rate, repetition rate, drop-out rate and failure rate. Teachers viewed that the Instructional Leadership Practices is related to teachers’ satisfaction while both the principals and the teachers claimed that it is related to school performance indicators. This study concludes that the principals’ leadership practices can affect teachers’ satisfaction and the school performance indicators. Hence, it is recommended, that DepEd Personnel should utilize the findings of this study and consider the proposed enhancement plan for the improvement of principals instructional leadership practices leading to the improvement of quality of teaching and student learning.
