Abstract

This paper discusses the important nature of communication in modern practice for school administrators. It looks at examples of the different types of technological means to facilitate effective communication. Two hypotheses were developed to examine the relationship between successful administration and effective communication. This study adopted the descriptive research of the ex-post facto type and multi-stage sampling technique was used to select participants for this study. In all 325 participants were selected made up of 125 staff and 300 students. One survey instrument was used in this study - Communication Effectiveness Rating Scale (CRES) developed by these researchers. The findings of this study indicate that students do not value importance of communication in school and students perceived more problems militating against effective communication in school than staff.
