The sample comprised of teachers and head teachers in selected schools in Makindu Sub County. Data was collected by use of questionnaires and interview guides. Data analysis was done using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) and presented in tables. Relevant interpretation, discussions and recommendations were drawn from the analyzed data. A major finding of the study is that ICT integration in Makindu Sub County may take time to be realized due to the fact that, ICT infrastructure in most schools within the region is lacking. The study therefore recommends that, there is need to equip the schools within the region with ICT infrastructure as well as offering in-service training for the teachers and employing qualified ICT personnel. The findings of this study may be an aid to educational planners in identifying the challenges faced during of ICT integration in schools, strategize and come up with frameworks which offer solutions to these challenges.
