Abstract
The successful actualization of any educational set up is dependent on managerial competence of the head in piloting its affairs. This study therefore investigated principals’ managerial competencies in school plant maintenance and school community in Kogi East Education Zone, Kogi State. Two research questions guided the study. Descriptive survey design was used for the study. The total population for the study was 2,060 with sample size of 412 respondents, made up of 24 principals, 72 vice-principals and 316 teachers drawn through random sampling technique.
PMCSPMSCRQ of 10-item served as instrument for data collection. The data collected were analyzed using mean and standard deviation to answer the search questions. Findings revealed that, Principals in the studied zone were low in managerial competent in school plant maintenance but high in school-community relationship. It was recommended among other things that Principals in Kogi State schools should be given free opportunities by the government for competency training programmes in order to improve their competencies in school plant maintenance.
