The study was conducted to determine the teachers compliance of Republic Act 6713 or the Code of
Conduct and Ethical Standards for Government Officials and Employees and its effects on teaching performance of
the secondary teachers of national high schools in the Division of Cagayan de Oro. The respondents of the study
were the 300 secondary teachers of the 22 national high schools of Cagayan de Oro City, both in District I and
District II. The descriptive method of research was used in this study. Thus, the study involved populations with
almost similar demographic attributes with common outstanding features that distinguishes them from other groups
in a specific location. The questionnaires were items taken from Republic Act 6713 otherwise known as the Code of
Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees, National Competency Based Standards for
Teachers and the STAR Observation Technique. Stratified random sampling was used to determine the number of
respondents. The weighted mean of each item of the questionnaires was determined; The null hypothesis of the
relationship between the variables of the study were tested by means of the Pearson r Product Moment Coefficient
of Correlation; T-test was used to find out if there is a significant difference between the respondents' profile and
their compliance with RA 6713 and their teaching performance. On the basis of results and findings, respondents’
profile as to gender, age, teaching experience, teaching position’ educational qualification and family monthly
income did not differ significantly to the level of teachers’ compliance to RA 6713. Therefore, regardless of gender,
age, experience, teaching position, educational qualification and family background, they do not differ on their
performance. They relatively have the same performance. As the statistic shows, there is a positive and significant
relationship between the teachers’ compliance to RA 6713 with respect to Commitment to public interest;
Professionalism; Justness and sincerity; Political neutrality; Responsiveness to the public; Nationalism and
patriotism; Commitment to democracy; and Simple living. Which means, the higher the level of the professionalism
among teachers it is expected that there is also a higher the compliance among teachers to RA 6713 respectively.
This is also true with the other indicators as stated in the said Republic Act.
