The objectives of the study were to investigate the dominant responsibilities shared by headteachers of basic school, identify the factors that hinder effective sharing of responsibilities process in basic schools, and to determine how to improve effective shared responsibilities in basic schools at Asokore Mampong Circuit. Three research questions were formulated to guide the study. The study employed descriptive survey design. The accessible population was basic school headteachers at Asokore Mampong Circuit. A sample of 60 headteachers was used for the study. Census technique was used to select all the basic school headteachers. Questionnaire was the main instrument used to collect data. The questionnaire was pre-tested at Tanoso and alpha coefficient obtained was .86. Frequencies and percentages were used to analyzed the data. The study revealed that compiling minutes from staff meetings, supervising sporting and cultural activities, and collection of fees were the dominant shared responsibilities by the headteachers. The study further found out that lack of confidence in teachers to perform quality task, lack of co-operation from teachers, and lack of effective control mechanism are the key factors that hinders effective sharing of responsibilities in basic schools by headteachers. It was recommended that Ghana Education Service need to organize workshop every academic year for basic school headteachers on how to share responsibilities and the need to share responsibilities to teachers. It was again recommended that the Ministry of Education come out with a manual on guidelines on sharing responsibilities to facilitate effective sharing of responsibilities in the basic schools.
