divisional headquarter districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province through survey
method. The questionnaire hadseven dimensions including attitude towards time, scheduling,
short and long range planning, managing meetings, delegating authority and responsibility,
establishing priorities, and handling interruptions specifically designed for this study to focus
on achieving predetermined goals.Data were analyzed through frequency, percentage, mean,
standard deviation and independent samples t-test. The time management skills level of
secondary school principals were found above average level. The Results also indicated
significant differences in principalsí time management practices based on gender, age and
length of administrative experience. Male principalsí time management skills were found
better than that of their female counter partners. Older and experienced school principals
