ABSTRACT This study explored influence of strikes of academic performance of students in some selected secondary schools in Kaptanya s econdary schools, Kapchorwa District. The objectives of the study included causes of strikes, relationship between strikes and academic performance of students and ways to curb strikes and improve academic performance of students in the selected secondary schools. A case study design was used and 72 respondents were sampled through simple random sampling and purposive sampling methods. Interview, and questionnaire were the instruments used and both primary and secondary sources of data were formed part of this research. The findings reveal that strikes are cause by different factors right from family background, school, and external influences. Direct relationship between strikes and academic performance of students was observed in that if there are strikes in school, students' performance in that school is likely to be low and the reverse is true. Appropriate strategies have been suggested to curb the phenomenon of strikes and improve academic performance in the selected secondary schools. some of these include building disciplinary committees, listening and addressing students' problems, coordinating with parents, teachers and parents, forming students' forum among others. The researcher recommended that student's deviant behaviors that tend to lead to strikes should be controlled at all costs if better academic performance is to be achieved. X
