Computer literacy and level of proficiency in database management system of Polillo District teachers during the SY 2016-2017 was identified in this study. The study was composed of 182 elementary teachers from Polillo District. Descriptive-correlational research type of research was used in this study to find out the significant relationship between the teachers’ computer literacy and their profile and between the computer literacy and level of proficiency on database management system. Survey questionnaire was the main data gathering instrument. The data were consolidated treated and analyzed using appropriate statistical tools. Results of the study revealed that majority of the teacher-respondents were 40-49 years old; mostly female; with 1 to 5 years teaching experience; bachelor’s degree graduate with masteral units; with 6-8 subjects taught; and have their own laptops/computers. In terms of basic operations, computer application, electronic communication, the computer literacy level of the teacher-respondents was rated fairly which means they can perform basic tasks. Their proficiency level in database management system was rated basic meaning they can perform the basic task. The findings of the study served as basis for designing the computer literacy program for teachers in the district. The study further revealed that the younger the respondents are and the shorter their years in teaching are, the better their computer literacy level. Likewise, the teachers who were computer literate were also proficient in database management system. This research allowed the researcher to design Computer literacy program for teachers.
