Reliability analysis, frequencies, correlation analysis and regression analysis were applied to analyze the data. As a result, it was determined that there was a moderate positive relationship between technological leadership and school effectiveness, and that the sub-dimensions of technological leadership such as human-centeredness, support and vision had a positive effect on school effectiveness. As a result of the regression analysis, it was determined that technological leadership predicts school effectiveness.
