This research aimed at accomplishing the following: (1) to build theoretical model, then to test its fitness with the empirical data; and (2) to investigate the factor loading of the main factors and sub-factors, as well as those indicators, which were compared to the determined criteria. The research applied descriptive research methodology to collect the data using a 5-scale questionnaire. The population consisted of 1,100 administrators in the Primary Educational Service Area Office (PEASO). The determination of the sample group size was established by applying the rule of population sample parameter proportion of 20:1, which was equal to 820 participants. From the 795 questionnaires, which were returned, the results of the data analysis were concluded by analyzing confirmatory factors using the AMOS program. It was determined that the theoretical model and empirical data were relevant given the following criteria: a Relative Chi-Square > 3.00 and a Root Mean Square Error of Approximation > 0.0. In addition, the Goodness-of-Fit Index, Adjusted Goodness of Fit Index, Comparative Fit Index, and Normed Fit Index were found to be between 0.90 – 1.00. Moreover, the factor loading of the main factors was from 0.86 – 1.06, which is higher than the determined criteria (0.70), while the factor loading of the sub-factors and the indicators ranged from 0.73 – 0.95 and 0.30 – 1.00, respectively. These numbers were also higher than the determined criteria of 0.30, indicating that as a result of the research, the theoretical model could be used as a guideline to improve better governance for the administrators of PEASO with construct and content validity.
