Transforming Schools into Effective Learning Communities.
Rancifer, Jesse L.
At a time when school leaders are trying to move from educational fads to transforming schools into effective learning communities, strategies to accomplish this end continue to elude many administrators even though they may be familiar with the desired results. School transformations, which are long-lasting and fad resistant, require all teachers, students, staff, parents, and other individuals associated with the institution to be continuous learners. This paper discusses seven basic strategies to assist the school leader in transforming the school into an effective learning community: (1) a shared purpose, covenant, and mission; (2) a school vision; (3) expertise in profession; (4) symbolic leadership; (5) team learning; (6) proactive leadership practices; and (7) reflective practices. The paper concludes with a list of the strategies and related practices for each. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/ND)
