dc.description.abstract The study focused on assessing the school management decision and students‟ academic performance, case study of South District Unguja, Zanzibar; whereby Kizimkazi and Dimbani Secondary Schools were among the school affected with poor performance especially in science subjects and English language subject. The schools are located in South District in Unguja Zanzibar. In order to achieve this, specific objectives were formulated, including: to explore school based procedures used in giving out school management decisions, to assess the implementation of school management decisions and to explore the measures for improving students‟ academic performance from the school management decisions. A sample of sixty four respondents was selected and data collected through questionnaires and interview. Data were analysed qualitatively and found out that, if the school management can apply the good style of leadership and allow the teachers and students to participate well in classroom together with their learners the positive results of academic performance will occur. From the findings, the majority of teachers had positive perception of the democratic leadership style which was good for enhancing students‟ academic performance. Also, the study revealed that, inadequately trained teachers, shortage of books and other teaching and learning materials, unconducive learning environment, large class size, and transport and school infrastructure are the main difficulties which led to contribute poor academic performance of the students from school management decisions. Finally, the study recommended that more efforts should be made so as to improve teacher‟s motivation and training, conducive learning environment, conducting remedial classes, parent‟s involvement and community awareness and teaching and learning materials so as to reduce difficulties faced by the students‟ and teachers in improving students‟ academic performance and education as whole. en_US
