A District Leader's Guide to Relationships That Support Systemic Change. School Communities That Work: A National Task Force on the Future of Urban Districts.
This study was geared foremost to the needs and interests of district leaders and seeks to help them understand RSO/district relationships and make informed decisions about collaborating with external organizations. Its findings can also be of use to other key leaders of school reform such as school board members and other elected and appointed officials, funders, union representatives, and civic and business leaders. All of these stakeholders play a critical role in reform and develop widely varying types of relationships with RSO's, sometimes as part of the superintendent's relationship and sometimes independently.
