The Local School Board of Panabo chaired by City Mayor Jose E.Relampagos recommended to the 8th City Council the renaming of “Panabo National High School” to “Panabo City National High School” through Resolution No. 11 Series of 2020 dated June 9,2020. Further, the 8th City Council invited the members of the LSB for a committee hearing on August 18,2020 to discuss the proposal.

Panabo National High School, formerly known as Panabo Provincial High School, was established on July 13,1970 under the leadership of the late Municipal Mayor of Panabo and Davao Del Norte Governor Gregorio R.Dujali. When Panabo became a component city on March 31,2001 and considering that the school is representing the City of Panabo, it was “deemed proper” by the current LSB to propose the renaming of the school to “Panabo City National High School”.

Aside from PNHS, there is also a recommendation to change the name of “New Visayas Elementary School” to “New Visayas Central Elementary School” through Resolution 12 of the LSB. It is stated that considering that the Panabo South District is composed of twenty (20) elementary schools, it has been divided into two (2) districts namely Panabo South District I and Panabo South District II, New Visasyas Elementary School has been identified as the Central School for Panabo South District II.

The renaming of schools is in line with the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) which is also mandated by DepEd Order No. 29 series of 2011 or the Revised Guidelines on the Naming and the Renaming of Schools. The City Council will also undergo a consultation with the NHCP before the school will be named legally.

The members of the Local School Board are: Reynante A.Solitario, CESO VI (Co-Chairperson), City Councilors Emmanuel G.Pamisaran, SK Federation President Danica Lyka M.Carisma, City Treasurer Kirk B.Samillano, Accountant III/DepEd Representative-Non Academic Member Glenn B.Separis, NOPTI President Behnjo S.Martin, PTA Federation President Edwin B.Virtudazo, and CSO Representative from King MPC, Faith F.Enad.
