Abstract
Student personnel management is a serious function of the school administrator (Principal) in conjunction with the school staff. It is an indispensable core and functional task of the school principal and his teachers and even non tutorial staff. Thus, the services to be rendered to students should come first in the planning stage of the school administration. The issue of how effective student personnel management could be achieved in school should be the utmost priority of every school administrator. This paper therefore addressed the issue of concept of student personnel management, classification of students, students’ participation in school administration and effective student personnel management. The paper ended with recommendations for promoting students personnel management in secondary schools in Nigeria.

Key words: Personnel management, Organization, Administrator, Functional task, Secondary schools

1.   Introduction
Personnel management is the most crucial issue in any organization. Thus, all other resources, finance, facilities and structures have meaning only with the application of personnel. There are two types of personnel management namely, Staff personnel management and students personnel management. Both are very important, but the students’ personnel management is an indispensable core and functional task of the school administrator and his staff.

Emetarom (2002) noted that schools are set up not for teachers, not for parents, not for educational administrators but for students. Therefore, without students there would be no schools even if there are ample number of teachers and school managers. Thus, the services to be rendered to students should come first in the planning of the school system. The predominant reason for establishing a school is to make sure that students are graduating with good result. This agrees to the assertion in the National Policy on Education (2004) which stipulates that the crucial issue in education is that relating to the end product of schooling (graduates), schools are known for their academic performance, thus every good school administrator must at all cost put in all the available educational resources within their powers effectively and efficiently in seeing that their students are academically and morally brought up.
