district. Accountability is a process whereby one is required to justify his or her actions. This

involves giving evidence that resources provided have been put to good use.

And on this context, it must be seen from the promotion of education service when these

resources entrnsted to people facilitate learning.

A school has a person(s) entrusted with the responsibility of receiving human resource,

finances and physical assets, putting them into use, overseeing the use and supervising their

operations and activities. When meeting this responsibility, the human resource managers have

authority to get evidence so that those being supervised are properly and efficiently utilizing

the resources to promote academic pe1f01mance.

head teacher expects accountability from the teachers, in turn the school management

committee or community and the DEO expect accountability from the head teacher and the

CAO expects accountability from the DEO
