Principals' Leadership Assessment Inventory was administered to the school principals and their vice with the reliability (PLAI, r= 0.72) and Teachers' Job Performance Assessment Scale was administered to the teachers with reliability (TJPAS r = 0.86). Two hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Data collected were analyzed with correlation statistical analysis. The result shows that there was significant relationship between democratic leadership style and teachers' job performance (r =.118,N= 300, p<.05 .
