A high performing school is described as one where student achievement is high and student and teacher absenteeism is low. Student behavior is such that teachers seldom have to control them or tell them what to do. This results in greater time on task, higher teacher morale, low teacher absenteeism, and improved parental support. One other distinctive feature of a high performing school is that the student peer group is a positive force and not a negative force. The end result is a school culture where faculty and students trust and care about each other, and there is a cooperative attitude.

Through real-life single and multiple case studies, Learning to Lead Together addresses how principals and their staffs struggle with the challenge of shared leadership, how they encourage teacher growth and development, and how shared leadership can lead to higher levels of student learning. The cases show how shared leadership, a powerful adaptive change, is socially constructed across contexts and evolves as teachers and principals learn how to work together. The book also illustrates how principal preparation and professional development programs that utilize problem-based learning and provide opportunities for genuine collaboration with colleagues can provide school leaders with the skills they need to share leadership and accountability effectively.

Examine critical studies on high-performing, high-poverty schools to identify how schools can fulfill the mission of educating all students to proficiency, especially students at risk. The authors compiled the most important research on how low-performing, high-poverty schools achieved radical improvements in learning for their most vulnerable students and also identified eight best practices, breaking them down into specific strategies, often using real-life examples from successful schools.

A contour is usually defined as an outline or the structure or characteristic of something. A contour line which is shown on a contour map indicates points of elevation. We think that all of these definitions fit Contours of Great Leadership. This book brings together many aspects of concepts and theories of leadership. It is an amalgam of ideas from the social sciences and the humanities woven together in the idea of leadership as an accoutrement, that is, a deliberate woven garment comprising science, art, experience, and craft knowledge. Thus we see leadership not as either/or an art or a science; or craft knowledge vs. scientific or research based knowledge, but rather as all of them combined and which occurs between followers and leaders within distinctive cultures and modes of communication. The importance of context and culture as the milieu in which leadership is acquired and learned is critical. In the end leadership is a performing art form, which while it can be studied scientifically, cannot be understood solely as a science without connecting it to the arts and ultimately to practice.

The purpose of our book is to share with our readers some insights we have acquired over the years in our administrative experience implementing change and reforms. Two areas that are critical for any reform to succeed are the way communications and conflicts are handled. We have included a chapter on interpersonal communications that describes five basic communication skills. We have also included a chapter on conflict with provides a number of insights on how to handle conflicts and how to avoid conflicts. Successfully dealing with communications and conflict are essential for improving levels of openness and trust Crucial for school culture and climate are low levels of openness and trust. There is little agreement amongst faculty that they are open and trusting with each other. This creates a guarded environment where energy is being spent in a protective mode. Motivation that should go towards improving instruction is diverted to make sure teachers stay out of trouble. Improving levels of openness and trust is a thread throughout the book, as is the concept of servant leadership. If administrators and teachers are perceived as servants as opposed to self-serving, an improvement in levels of openness and trust will result. The authors describe a number of activities for principals so they can practice the servant leadership style that is essential in order to enhance a school’s culture and climate. One of the activities addresses bullying behavior. Bullying behavior must be addressed if there is to be a positive school culture and climate.
