The specific objectives that guided the study are to assess the influence of regular payment of teachers’ salaries, investigate the influence of teachers’ fringe benefits and examine if there is a significant relationship between extra-responsibilities of teachers and students’ academic performance in secondary schools in Mbale Municipality. The study used an ex post facto research design. Six hundred and eighty three (683) questionnaires were administered to the respondents while six hundred and four (604) questionnaires were returned. The sampling techniques used were multistage cluster, simple random and purposive sampling techniques.
