Abstract: The study on The Effect of School Foundation Board (S.F.B) on Academic Performance in Oluko Sub County Primary Schools (2008 - 2010) has come timely to shade light misunderstanding of the role of school foundation boards on primary school. This is because the role of school foundation boards has continued not to be clearly understood by many _ parents, teachers, opinion leaders and school administration. The specific objectives of the study were to examine the roles of school foundation boards, to examine the factors that affect the level of academic performance in schools and to establish the relationship between school foundation board and academic performance in schools. The study employed a descriptive method where qualitative approach was mainly used. The researcher chose purposive, convenient and snow ball sampling techniques for the study. This comprised of teachers, parents, opinion leaders totaling to 60 drawn from 8 parishes within Oluko Sub County. Data collected through interview guide and questionnaires was coded, classified and analyzed using special package for social sciences (SPSS) and Microsoft (MS) excel where data were presented in simple percentages, graphical for easy and comparisons of opinions. The findings of the study revealed that school foundation board actually has effect on academic performance of children in primary schools. For instance; the school foundation boards develop and implement policies and goals, budgeting, distribution of funds and determine investment needs of the school. It was established knowledge that the role of foundation boards is not well perceived in primary schools in Oluko Sub County.
