Abstract


The head teachers are charged with the responsibilities of management of schools in Kenya. School head teachers, as decision-makers, are continually confronted with problems of managing school resources and funds. With so much at stake resting upon the head teachers’ decisions, it is necessary that they should be well informed about the many facets of their demanding job. School head teachers are confronted with literally hundreds of small spontaneously occurring leadership problems to be solved in their day-to-day management of their schools. Despite the government’s efforts to ensure that there is effective management of special schools and integrated programmes for the intellectually challenged, still remains a concern to educationist and stakeholders about the issue.

Thus the study aimed to establish how the head teachers manage the resources for the implementation of integration programmes for the intellectually challenged learners in Maara district
