This study determines the correlates of burnout syndrome among public secondary school administrators in the Division of Laguna, school year 1999-2000.Descriptive research particularly the correlative method was used. To gather data, the researcher used two instruments, namely: Pines and Aronson's Burnout Measure and the Respondent Information Questionnaire (RIQ). He also used frequency distribution to show the profile of the respondents, means to show their burnout levels, and correlations and stepwise regression analysis to determine the degree of relationships between the chosen dependent and independent variables.The following findings were obtained:1. The respondents exhibited low to moderate burnout levels and low to moderate levels of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion 2. No significant relationship exists between each of the three components of burnout and each of the selected personal factors, workload factors, and performance rating and3. No significant relationship exists between burnout levels and each of the ten variables which are classified as personal factors, workload factors, and performance rating.Based on the results of the study, the researcher adopted the following conclusions:1. The burnout level of the respondents, in general, can still be manageably dealt with 2. Just like other groups of professionals, the respondents are also highly vulnerable to the syndrome and

3. The ten selected variables classified as personal factors, workload factors, and performance rating have nothing to do with burnout experience among the respondents. This means that the burnout levels among the respondents may be due to other factors which are more significant and relevant than those included in the study. This also implies that the respondents may experience burnout regardless of the said factors.
