It is for this reason that managers of educational institutions should acquire and utilize school resources in the most cost effective manner to bring about required changes.This study sought to investigate the school categories and its effect on the cost of development projects implemented in Bungoma West District of Bungoma County in Kenya. To ensure that all divisions within the district and categories of schools were taken care of stratified sampling was used in selection of the sample. Purposive Sampling was used to select a sample of 30 head teachers, 30 Parents Teachers Association (PTA) and Board of Governors (BOG) chairmen, 120 teachers and 120 students. The District Education Officer was used as a key informant. Descriptive survey design was adopted in this study. Data were collected through questionnaires, an interview, and observation schedules. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics which included frequencies, and percentages. The inferential statistics; ANOVA and Pearson test statistics were also used.
