Abstract: This study undertook to identify the number of parents. Teacher's co-operation and students' academic performance in Kitgum Town College, Kitgurn District. Across Sectional survey focusing primarily on sampled students who had performed poorly in the government officials directly involved in the implementation of programs was used. The area of study was Kitgurn Town College, Kitgurn district, Westland parish. The major methods used were questionnaires, oral interviews, stratified sampling by promotional allocation was employed, and document analysis. 120 respondents were interviewed, questionnaires, and a focused group discussion. Although the district local government and development partners are making a difference to ensure quality academic performance by students through access, retention and computation of the secondary school cycle for students both boys and girls, the study revealed that access to educational opportunities alone do not guarantee survival and enabling family, community and school environment is more paramount. Another finding was correlation between age of entry and length of stay of the students especially the girl child- education in the education system. Late school enrollment is likely to affect a student's ability to complete the cycle, leaving her a student over age for the teaching-learning activities being undertaken by the school. The psychological changes that come with adolescence require learning environment that are more responsive to students' needs. It was evidenced that a girl child needs an enabling environment to be a positive change agent in the community. This study has clearly shown that ensuring girls and boys benefit equally from the school system requires nothing less than the integration of gender equality concern in the design and implementation of education strategies Based on the findings, conclusion and recommendation have been made; it is the researchers hope that this information will be useful to the relevant ministries, non governmental organization, Kitgum Local government and to the community to promote the quality of education in Acholi land.
