FRAMEWORK OF THE STUDY The present study focuses on the emerging development of performance efficiency of School Web-based Management System. It anchors deeply on the concept of Management and Technological theories informed by views drawn from Efficiency Theory, concept of Total Quality Management, Socio-Technical Systems Theory, Cognitive Fit Theory, Technology Acceptance Model, Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology, Task Technology fit and – all of which provide the contributions for the conduct of this research. Efficiency Theory is used by the economists in different contexts to support this study. Allocative (price) efficiency tells whether or not a good or service is provided, technical (production) efficiency is concerned whether or not a firm or decision making unit (DMU) produces the same observed output at the least possible cost (Galban, 2010).
