Some of the secondary school principals in Nigeria appear not to be administratively effective on their job. The extent to which their time management could be responsible for this has not been well established in the literature. This study therefore examined the principals’ time management and administrative effectiveness in public secondary schools in Ekiti State. The descriptive research design of the survey type was used in this study. The population of this study consisted of all principals in 203 public secondary schools in Ekiti State. The sample consisted of 30 principals and 600 teachers who were selected using multistage sampling procedure. Two self-designed research instruments tagged Principals’ Time Management Questionnaire (PTMQ) and Administrative Effectiveness Questionnaire (AEQ) were used to collect relevant data for the study. The face and content validity of the instruments were determined by experts in Educational Management and Tests and Measurements. The reliability of the instruments was established using test re-test method which yielded co-efficient values of 0.91 for PTMQ and 0.72 for AEQ. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study revealed that the levels of time management of secondary school principals were moderate. It was also found out that there was significant relationship between each of the components of principals’ time management (delegation of duties and scheduling contacts) and administrative effectiveness. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that principals should do more in managing time in the areas of delegation of duties and scheduling contacts in order to improve their administrative effectiveness.
