The study aimed to reveal the availability degree of digital etiquette skills among the principals of basic education schools in Al Batinah-South Governorate in the Sultanate of Oman. It also aimed to identify the impact of gender, educational qualification, years of experience variables from the point of view of school principals in Al Batinah-South Governorate in the Sultanate of Oman. The study followed a descriptive research design approach. A questionnaire consisted of 28 statements was distributed to a sample of (92) school principals from Al Batinah-South Governorate, Oman. The study found that the availability degree of digital etiquette skills among the principals was at a high availability degree. It also found that there were no statistically significant differences due to the gender and educational qualification variables. However, there were statistically significant differences due to the years of experience variable in favour of those with years of 21 years of experience or more. The study recommended developing an integrated national plan to provide school principals with digital etiquette skills, discussing digital etiquette on social media sites to monitor the most important problems that hinder digital etiquette skills, conducting more intensive quantitative and qualitative studies on the topic of digital etiquette, and providing digital etiquette for all without exception within the educational institutions.
