Meanwhile, the interview was trial-tested with two head teachers Data from questionnaire were analyzed through descriptive statistics of observed frequencies, percentages, sum, mean scores and standard deviations. Data from the interview were analyzed thematically to corroborate the findings from the questionnaire. Hypotheses were analyzed using Pearson Product-Moment Correlation. It was found that Based Approach has a significant linear relationship with head teachers’ administrative processes (= 3.16 ± 0.49), rxy = .198** and Project Based Approach has a weak linear relationship with head teachers’ administrative processes (= 3.11 ± 0.50), rxy = .044.
