In the National Education System Law (Article 1 of RI Law No. 20 of 2003) stated that education is a conscious and planned effort to create an atmosphere of learning and learning process so that students actively develop their potential to have religious spiritual strength, self-control, personality, intelligence, noble character, and the skills needed by himself, society, nation and state. In schools, sometimes there is only transfer of knowledge and ignoring the character development of students. This research was conducted in three junior high schools in the Talaud Islands Regency. The purpose of this study was to determine the integrated management of character education in schools. By examining three variables, namely planning, implementing, and monitoring evaluation. From the results of the study it was concluded that planning must be carried out by schools involving stakeholders (government, security forces, and student parents). The implementation of character education must be carried out not only in the school environment but also in the middle of the student's own family. The evaluation is conducted with quarterly evaluation meetings, home visits, portfolio documents and field notes.
