Guiller P. Pendon

The study explored the perception of fourth year students on the implementation of monetary sanctions as fines for non-attendance in school activities. The study examined the extent in which fines were perceived, whether or not this fines would be re-imposed or not in the future. The study employed descriptive and qualitative designs. Descriptive data was obtained through a questionnaire checklist. There were 12 respondents who were interviewed and their responses were summarized and interpreted accordingly. The findings revealed that the respondents have poor perceptions on the implementation of fines in the form of monetary sanctions while the qualitative data seems to prove that respondents considered fines as an effective sanction to improve students’ attendance in school activities.
