Abstract: This study was undertaken to assess the level of effectiveness of senior secondary school principals in Ethiopia as they predispose their influence over their staff both in task performance and group satisfaction (morale) activities. The analysis was based on the application of Halpin's 'Behavioral' model. c A rigorous statistical procedure was employed on the data derived basically from the perceptual ratings of the three independent groups that bear a direct impact on the principa19 leadership role. the outcome of the data analysis revealed that, fewer principals were on the 'transitional style' with the largest proportion emphasizing a consideration behavior perhaps affecting school effectiveness. On the whole, the findings showed that factors significant of school leadership are centered around student enrollment size, staff motivation, principals' management training, and the attitudes of the work groups towards the power of the principal. (. It was thus suggested that to improve the leadership capacity of principals the present status of schools with respect to ever increasing enrollement, lower staff morale, and bottlenecks in finance and facilities must be tackled adequatel1 before individual principal's excellence and effectiveness can be realized.
