Journal Title:Journal of Research in Education and Society

This research was conducted to investigate the prediction of principals’ administrative effectiveness based on imprest received by the schools. Two research questions and two null hypotheses were formulated to guide the researcher. Survey design was adopted for the study. Population of the study was 472. This consisted 86 principals and 380 vice principals in public secondary schools in Uyo Senatorial District. Multi-stage sampling technique was used. The total sample used was 180. 36 principals and 144 vice principals at the ratio of 1:2. Opinion questionnaire for vice principals (OQVP) and school Imprest Questionnaire for Principals (SIQP) were constructed by the researcher for the study. Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient was used to test the reliability of the instrument. The two research questions were answered using simple linear regression analysis: and the two hypotheses were tested by Analysis of Variance of the Simple Linear Regression Analysis. The result revealed that school imprest significantly predicted principals’ ability to provide learning facilities and maintain school buildings. Among recommendations made was that each school must open an imprest account to enable government’s supervision on the imprest fund execution
