Data was collected through a questionnaire with seven questions where respondents indicated responses on statements in a Likert scale. Data from semi structured interviews from key informants, focused discussion groups and the government officers who had been involved in these projects were used for triangulation. Quantitative data collected was analyzed. The study established that the community was not involved in any monitoring and evaluation of the educational projects. Participatory monitoring and evaluation in development of educational projects therefore contributes to the success of educational projects though it should be complemented with good project management skills. For M & E framework to be applied to the projects, the projects implementing should conduct trainings to the community to build up their capacity in understanding and participation in the monitoring and evaluation framework system.
