Three research questions and three hypotheses guided the study. The instrument was a 23 item questionnaire validated with reliability index of 0.88 using Cronbach Alpha. Data obtained were analyzed through mean and t-test statistics of 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed that principals administrative and communication strategies enhance teachers job performance.
