This study aimed to explore the degree to which schools’ principals in Oman employ digital leadership from the principals’ viewpoint. In addition, the impact of gender, years of experience, and educational qualification was examined. The researchers used the descriptive research approach, where a questionnaire consisting of 31 items was developed. It was divided into four areas: Planning with 7 items, organization with 11 items, supervision and follow-up with 8 items, and electronic content with 5 items. In this study, 207 principals (male and female) from various governorates in Oman were randomly selected. The results showed that the degree to which schools’ principals in Oman employ digital leadership from the principals’ viewpoint was high. Additionally, the results showed that there were statistically significant differences between the averages of the degree to which school principals employ digital leadership (as a whole) and their areas attributed to gender, years of experience, and qualification. Based on the findings, the researchers recommend providing classrooms with digital devices, using digital applications in all teaching and administrative processes, and training teachers to design electronic tests and to facilitate the process of correction and follow-up.
