Peraturan Menteri Pendidikan Nasional/Permendiknas (Regulation of the Minister of National Education) Number 13 Year 2007 states that managerial competence is one out of five mandatory competencies that must be possessed by school principals. Teachers are not required to posses this competence, but as they are nominated as school principals, they must acquire this managerial competence. Further, Permendiknas Number 28 Year 2010 defines that school principals are to be prepared through a series of administrative and academic selection, and yet educational training which is called the Principal Preparation Program (PPP). PPP is aimed at, one of which, preparing school principal candidates to be able to play their roles as school managers. Previous studies show that among the five dimensions of school principals' competence, managerial dimension plays a vital role in determining the success of school principals in managing their schools. Based on the above two-requirements stated by the regulations concerning school principals, and the initial observation concerning the extent to which education authorities responding to the policies, this study aims to describe the initial ability of teachers who are nominated as school principals and the extent to which education authorities in districts/cities/provinces responding to the policy of PPP. Initial capability data were collected through the AKPK (the Professional Development Need Analysis/PDNA) instrument which was distributed to 919 principal candidates in 10 provinces and 33 districts/cities. The result of data analysis shows that the average initial ability of principal candidates' managerial competence is in moderate category (2,8). The two lowest indicators of the managerial competence of principal candidates are the mastery of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and the implementation of monitoring and evaluation. However, data show that a total of 42.6% of the Provincial/District/City Education Authorities has not responded well to PPP policy as one of alternative ways to improve the managerial competence of principal candidates. Both findings imply that every teacher nominated as school principal should be provided with knowledge, skill and attitude constructing school principals' managerial competence, especially in the utilization of ICT and the implementation of monitoring and evaluation. Provincial/District/City Education Authorities must be further informed about the PPP as the program of the Ministry of Eduation in promoting school principals.
