The study employed descriptive survey design and a mixed method approach to collect and analyze data. Samples of schools and study participants were drawn from three Woreda’s from which four Secondary Schools were selected of nine total Scools in the Woreda using random and stratified sampling techniques.

Quantitative data were analyzed using descriptive statistics including mean, Standerd deviation and percentage, and Qualitative data were analyzed by using narration. The outcomes of the study suggested that insufficient preparation of School leader for planning of SIP,lack of evaluation and prioritizing needs, and material resources are practices identified. Furthermore, insufficient continuous professional training for School Leaders, Lack of Community involvement, lack of moral and commitment of Scool Principals, political instability, and Teachers and Principals turnover were the challenges faced by School Leaders. Thus, such situation made it difficult for School Leaders to lead School for improvement. Based on this, it was recommended that the Zonal Bureau of Education take appropriate measures including supply of adequate material and financial support to schools and providing needed training and administrative support for Scool Leaders and taking naccesary measurs to minimize Teachers and Principals turnover, so that they would better be able to lead School for improvement. en_US
