ABSTRACT
Knowledge management, as a new approach in of management, involves applying the creation, acquisition, storage, distribution to science and knowledge. School principals play an effective role in establishing management because, by applying management, the educational system will be able to train knowledgeable citizens for the society and make positive steps to empower its employees. Nowadays, educational institutes such as schools are distinguished as the producers and distributors of the perfect educational science, while managers as educational mentors need frameworks to establish and convey the science, according to the basic educational knowledge management and organizational learning at schools. This paper studies, from an applied perspective, the relationship between knowledge management and the empowerment of principals' skills. The analytical and descriptive method is used for statistical analysis. The participants included school principals of Babol city, Iran, out of which 152 participants were selected according to random sampling which was calculated according to Karjsay-Morgan table. In order to analyze the data, Pearson's correlation coefficient was used. Our findings indicate that there is a significant relationship between knowledge management and principals' empowerments.
