The study examined funds disbursement, monitoring, accountability and performance of UPE schools in Iganga district. The purpose was to examine the extent to which funds disbursement, monitoring, and accountability explain performance of UPE schools in Iganga district. The study was cross sectional and a structured questionnaire consisting of funds disbursement, monitoring, accountability, and performance of UPE schools was used to obtain data from 113 respondents. The data was analyzed using SPSS and regression and correlation analysis was run because of its capacity to indicate precisely what happens to the conceptual model as different predictor variables are introduced. The findings revealed that monitoring and accountability are strong predictors of performance of UPE schools and they account for 69 percent of variance in performance. However, the findings also showed that funds disbursement has no significant effect on the UPE school performance. The study can help government through MoES to investigate why funds disbursement is not significant in predicting performance of UPE schools and identify other possible variables. The study proposes the establishment of a department responsible for ensuring the appropriate involvement of all stakeholders to achieve regular monitoring and timely accountability practices since they affect school performance.
