Abstract

implementation of strategic planning process and head teachers’ performance in public day primary
school in Kericho County of Kenya. The study used an ex-post-facto research design. The research
approach used was quantitative and qualitative. The target population comprised of 524 head teachers
of public primary schools in Kericho County. The research instruments used to collect the data were
questionnaires and interview schedules. A sample of 227 headteachers and Six (6) Sub County
Directors was obtained using Stratified Random Sampling and Purposive sampling technique
respectively. Data was collected using a questionnaire that was developed by the researcher. Simple
random sampling technique was used to select schools in each sub County. A pilot study was done on
23 headteachers who were not included in the final study to determine reliability of the research
instruments. Cronbach alpha formula was used to determine reliability coefficient. A score of 0.7 and
above was deemed acceptable. Data was analysed for descriptive statistics (frequencies and
percentages) and inferential statics (Pearson correlation and Regression analysis). The results were
presented in form of tables and figures. The results show that implementation of strategic planning
process did not have a statistically significant relationship with head teachers’ performance in primary
day schools in Kericho County. There was a positive correlation between results of strategic planning
process and head teachers’ performance at (r = 135; p = 0.056)
