dc.description This study aimed to explore the role of education management of school boards after the decentralization of secondary education to determine whether it reflects the students’ school board. The study also sought to determine the effectiveness of educational management through school boards on students’ performance for form IV national examination in Same district council, Kilimanjaro Region. The study used both Qualitative and Quantitative methods on research design to solicit information through structured questionnaire and interviews, and the secondary data were obtained from DSEO and NECTA Website (www.necta.ac.tz). This study used a sample size of 76 respondents from 5 community secondary schools was selected. Purposeful sampling technique was used to select respondents. The findings reveal that the most community school board members do not know their roles exactly, due to the mode of school board formation which gives room to the head of school to propose the appointed school board members whom he/she wants regardless of none experience they have in that matter. On the school-based matters, the findings reveal that there is no effectiveness of educational management of school boards on students’ performance for form IV national examination. The recommendation made in this study is that in order to increase efficiency in educational management of school boards, the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training has to review the Education Act of 1978 on the mode of school board formation, changes to the act enable to have an official meeting among the four meetings of school boards annually that includes staff teachers so as to give room to school board members to hear what challenges/difficulties faced by a teacher that caused failure or success to his/her subject individually so as to improve students’ performance.
