It was a descriptive survey to determine the extent secondary school administrator used MIS as a tool in administration. A sample of 44 principals and 210 teachers representing 44 and 10 percent of principals and teachers was selected from 100 principles and 2,100 teachers was selected through stratified random sampling representation. A 2-part, 15 item, 4-point Likert scale instrument was used to collect data for answering 2 research questions and for testing 2 null hypotheses at 0.05 level of probability. The instrument was validated by a team of experts in the department of Educational Management, Uniport, Nigeria, and a reliability value of r = 0.85 established.
