Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate the . effectiveness of organizational communication taking place - between the school principals and the two groups of subordinates - the academic and administrative staff' members. The data was collected from 28 principals, 60 administrative staff members, and 310 teachers selected from 12 senior secondary schools of Ethiopia by systematic sampling method. Two schools were picked by lottery (simple random sampling method) from each zone in the country. Two , types of questionnaires were employed to collect the necessary data from the principala and their subordinates. The study revealed that principals do not have a thorough understanding of the general principles of organizational communication and they have not applied them in their schools. Because of this and other reasons, staff members seem to lack the courage and interest to transmit their suggestions, comments, etc. upwards. Although ' the flow of messages is primarily downward that even does notílook to be effective. Generally, it appears that there is no conducive climate for communication and this has made the networka;faulty and not able to facilitate school work. It is believed that these problems can be alleviated by organizing workshops and training programs to acquaint principals with the basic principles of communication ao that they can improve communication in the schools.
