Abstract:The study investigated sustainable supervisory indices for combating corruption as correlates for quality school governance. The study area was Calabar Education Zone of Cross River State Nigeria. Two null hypotheses were formulated to direct the study. The ex- post facto design was adopted for the study. Census sampling technique was used to sample all the eighty-one (81) principals for the study. Sustainable Supervisory Indices for Combating Corruption and School Governance Questionnaire (SSICCQSGQ) was the instrument used for data collection. The reliability coefficient of the instrument was 0.78 which was established using Cronbach alpha reliability method. The data collected were analyzed using Pearson’s product moment correlation statistics, and the hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The findings of the study revealed among others that there is a high positive correlation between classroom observation and demonstration techniques and school governance in public secondary schools in Calabar education zone of Cross River State. Based on the findings, the conclusion was drawn and it was recommended among others that government should provide opportunity for principals to attend conferences, workshops, seminars and colloquiums on sustainable supervisory indices at least once a year both nationally and internationally for more acquisition of skills and knowledge for combating corruption and foster effective school governance in order to keep them at par with their foreign counterparts.
