Boards of Managements (B.O.M) carry with them the success or failure of the schools' management. The success of B.O.M is portrayed through good academic performance and high discipline standards in schools. Poor management on the other hand, may lead to the dissolution of the Board and nomination of another to manage the school. Performance of the B.O.M may be as a result of their training levels and acquired skills. This study therefore sought to categorize education levels of B.O.M in Wareng Sub County in relation to their involvement in the recruitment process. The study employed a descriptive survey design. The study population included head teachers/principals, members of Board of Managements, Education Officers, teachers and Support Staff. Simple random sampling was used to obtain 12 schools out of the total 24 public schools in Wareng Sub County. A total of 12 head teachers, 7 school bursars and three District Education Officers were purposively included in the study. Simple random sampling was used to select 50 teachers and 43 B.O.M members from the schools selected. Data was collected by the use of questionnaires and interview schedules and analysed by use of descriptive statistics. The study established that majority of the B.O.M members were holders of Diploma and Secondary Education Certificate. It was also established that B.O.M were often engaged in the selection of teachers and recruitment of non- teaching staff, promotion and discipline of support staff, motivation of teachers and disciplining of errant teachers. The study is expected to enrich Board of Management's induction and training programmes in order to improve the quality of school management in Wareng Sub County.
