This study aimed to assess the intervention program for school-based truancy and its impact on Grade 10 students’ scholastic performance in Pulong Santa Cruz National High School, City of Santa Rosa, Province of Laguna, S.Y. 2019-2020.

Research Methodology

The researcher applied the descriptive-causal and correlational research. where he involved the total of 250 junior high school migrant students in the Division of Santa Rosa City, School Year 2019 – 2020 who were randomly selected and participated as respondents. For the instrument, the researcher utilized the idea of the Department of Education regarding the Internal Migration and Its Implication to Educational Development. It was modified and on suggestions of the experts to gather the necessary data and the information needed in this study. Frequency, Percentage, Weighted Mean, Standard Deviations, Pearson Correlation Coefficient, General Linear Model and linear regression were employed as statistical tools for the purpose of this study.


Based on the data gathered, most of the respondents were female with the total distribution of female respondents from the three schools consist of 93 or 52.54% of the total population of 177 while male are 84 or 47.46%, which describes that female is dominant than male, most of them have 2 to 5 number of siblings while few of them have 6 to 8 number of siblings.The results described that most of the family monthly income ranges from 5,000 to 10,000 pesos.It can be gleaned from the BMI distribution of the respondents both male and female most of them belongs to normal status and some were wasted and none were severely wasted and their academic performance are approaching proficiency. It can be concluded that the learners were slightly agree with a composite mean of 2.95 and SD of 1.17 for School A, 2.96 and SD of 0,75 for School B, and 3.10 and 0.99 SD. A composite Mean of 2.32 for School A determined that their learners were disagreed on the environmental aspects of migration while a composite Mean of 2.95 for School B and 2.78 for School C determined that their learners were slightly agreed on the said aspects of migration. The learners of School A, B, and C were disagreed on most of the statement in political aspects. The composite mean ranges from 2.23 to 2.48 determined of disagreeable level of agreement of the learners among three schools in health and social aspects. The Mean Percentage Score (MPS) of the respondents in School A were approaching proficiency level with an overall mean of 81.93% and standard deviation of 2.86, same status with School B learners with 81.70% MPS and SD of 2.60. as well as School C with 81.60% MPS and SD of 3.55, these results shows that the learners have an average performance. The results revealed the computed p-values ranges from 0.183 to 0.945 determined that there is no significant relationship between migration factors and the learners’ academic performance.


Based on the findings of the study these conclusions were drawn. The hypothesis stating that there is no significant relationship between the student level of agreement on factors of migration and their academic performance is partly rejected. The null hypothesis, there is no moderating effect between the relationships of all the indicators of migration factor towards learners’ academic performance is accepted.


Based on the finding and conclusions the researcher suggested or recommended of the following: Though the results of this study shown non significance relationship between the migration factors and learners’ academic performance, there is a need to consider the findings of other studies that family separation caused by international migration leads to decreased student motivation and engagement which caused negative effects to the learners’ academic performance.

The concern authority may conduct awareness campaign program for the migrant learners including their parents for them to fill the acceptance. Seminar workshop may be conducted for the school with large numbers of migrated learners for them to increased motivation and engagement in terms of educational aspects. There is a need for further study with broader scope since this study only covers selected school in a certain community. And lastly, the implementation of proposed action plan is recommended.
