The study aimed to investigate the administrators perception of political influence and the organizational norms among the CHED-supervised institutions in Western Visayas and their relationship to school leadership and governance. Further, the study aimed to ascertain how certain administrators and school-related factors might influence the administrators perception of political influence, organizational norms, school leadership, and school governance. The subjects for this descriptive-correlational study were the 78 randomly selected school administrators of CHED-supervised institutions in Western Visayas. Data for the study were gathered through the use of two researcher-made instruments-- the Political Influence Rating Scale and School Governance Rating Scale and two standardized tests--Mark Alexander's Organizational Norms Opinionnaire and the Sexton-Switzer Educational Management Grid. Means, standard deviations, ranks, the t-test, the One-Way Analysis, and the Pearson r of the SPSS were used in the statistical analysis. Alpha level was set at .05. As revealed by the findings, the CHED-supervised institutions were moderately influenced by politics with colleague/associate relations identified as the norms that operate in these institutions. The situational style of leadership was predominant among the administrators and school governance was effective. The administrators differed significantly in their identification of organizational norms grouped according to gender and in their leadership style grouped according to age. Age, educational background, administrative experience, teaching experience, and school type were found to significantly predict the administrator's leadership style. Finally, organizational norms were positively and significantly correlated with school governance.
