This paper, one of the nine-booklet Teacher Quality Series, offers guidelines for educational leaders who have the responsibility of making policy to improve the school as an organization in which teaching and learning take place. Various organizational schemes that encourage staff to share understandings and techniques, help each other to improve, and use research findings to test new methods are described. Specific topics discussed include: (1) community-school relationships; (2) the character of the school; (3) linking teacher improvement and school organization; (4) school organization and status; (5) teacher rewards and incentives; (6) promoting teacher leadership; and (7) defining and supporting school improvement. Information about the other booklets in this series concludes the document. (JD)
