Author(s): Adel Al-Dhuwaihi, Abdo Maamari

This article aimed to identify the degree to which public school principals use e-management and its relationship to the quality of administrative work in Al-Khobar. The study used descriptive and correlative approaches. A questionnaire was used to collect responses from 38 principals. The results showed a high degree of electronic management use, with an average score of 3.99 (standard deviation=0.628) as well as a high degree of quality of administrative work, with an average score of 3.94 (standard deviation=0.694); there was a strong correlation relationship between electronic management and quality of administrative work (statistically significant at the 0.01 level). The results suggest the need for continuous improvement in work performance by increasing awareness of the importance of using computer hardware and its application programs as well as increasing administrative communication between staff and administrative levels, and conducting more on-going training on the use of computer electronic devices and access to all new application computer programs.
