This study purposed to assess the influence of students’ governing council (SGC) in fostering the management of discipline in public secondary schools in Bungoma Central Sub-County, Kenya. The objectives of this research were: to investigate the influence of the students governing council preparations, students governing council traits, students governing councils resources requirement and students governing council succession strategies on the management of discipline in public secondary schools in Bungoma Central Sub-County Kenya. Systems and Participative Leadership Theory guided the study. The descriptive survey design for collecting information was used for it examines the situation as it is. The target population of 471 people comprised of 92 deputy principals and 379 SGC. Krejcie and Morgan table was used to determine a sample size of 214 respondents. The questionnaires were subjected to pilot test to ensure that research instruments were reliable. The results of the study indicated that schools where student councils were not involved in SGC preparations were characterized by high levels of indiscipline compared to those schools where students were involved in preparations process. Further, school where a student council is not involved in supporting the SGC traits was characterized by high levels of indiscipline than those that involved students in supporting SGC traits. A school where a student council did not support SGC resource requirements was characterized by high levels of indiscipline than those where student governing council resource requirements were supported. Finally, a school where a student council are not involved in supporting SGC succession strategies was characterized by high levels of indiscipline than those where student council was involved supporting SGC succession strategies. It is concluded that involving student council in supporting SGC traits influences discipline management. It is also concluded that supporting student governing council resource requirements influences discipline management. It is recommended that students be involved in preparations through selected student governing councils. This ensures that students are accommodated by building a sense of belonging to the school. It is also recommended that student councils be involved in supporting SGC traits. It is also recommended that student-governing councils be supported with enough resources and proper planning of the succession strategies.
