This study intended comparing the financial management
competence of selected and promoted school principals (heads).
It was quantitative and comparative in nature. The population was principals of
government high schools in Upper Punjab. Purposive sampling technique was
applied for sampling the size of 213 school heads from district Sahiwal. A selfdeveloped questionnaire comprising 34 items was used to collect data. The
reliability of the questionnaire was found to be .82. Data were analyzed using
advanced statistics using SPSS. The study established that school heads have
awareness planning procedures and
implementation processes but school heads are
not confident to coordinate with stakeholders in
financial matters of school. The significant
difference appeared in financial management
competence of promoted and selected school
heads and males and females school principals. It
was recommended that financial management
orientation and training may be arranged for
school heads of public secondary schools to
improve their financial management competence.
