This is particularly true, because factors and variables within the confines of educational activities appear also to be inexhaustible. One of such factor that attracted an investigation is 'occupational stress' as it affects school administrators and senior teachers. Therefore, this study, intends to investigate the underlying factors and structure of occupational stress facing Islamic school administrators and senior teachers in selected private Islamic schools in Klang Valley and how they manage stress within administrative and management function of these schools. The aspects that were investigated include—Administrative Responsibility, Workload, inadequate resources, work environment and lack of support from parent staff and coping methods.
