The aim of the study was to find out the extent to which management practices in record keeping will affect the effectiveness of secondary schools administration in Nigeria. A descriptive survey design was used and a sample of 255 staff members randomly selected from all 15 schools of the Baptist Mission Schools of the Nigerian Baptist Convention was used for the study. Two hypotheses guided the study. Data were collected using a questionnaire entitled “School Record Keeping Management Practices Questionnaire (SRKMPQ)”. Data were analysed using multiple regressions and t-test statistics. The result of the study revealed management practices in record management had a significant relationship in the effectiveness of secondary schools administration. The management practices variables made significant contribution in the determining effective secondary school administration in Nigeria through record keeping.  Premised on the findings of the study, it was recommended that each school administrator should set out guidance that will encourage appropriate standards for record keeping. Other suggestion included sufficient training and retraining on the importance of the records keeping, the technicalities of managing them and finally adoption of information and commutation technology for school record keeping management.
