The study aims to analyze the implementation of Good School Governance in vocational schools in Indonesia as a response of the high number of inappropriate employment to the vocational graduates’ competencies. This present quantitative descriptive study applies the purposive sampling technique by picking up 852 vocational school principals and teachers from 34 provinces in Indonesia. The researcher found a model for improving the vocational school performance based on good school governance in Indonesia covering Transparency, Accountability, Responsibility, Autonomy, Fairness, Participation, Effectiveness and Efficiency, and Consensus-Oriented principles. Among these eight factors, Responsibility is assessed the highest with the Mean score of 3.25, while both Consensus-Oriented and Participation are labelled as “Not Good” with the Mean scores of 2.93 and 2.82 respectively. However, the results of the recent study need to be legitimated in order to formally applied in all vocational schools in Indonesia.
