Distributing Leadership: Moving from High School Hierarchy to Shared Responsibility
Wallach, Catherine A.; Lambert, Mary Beth; Copland, Michael; Lowry, Louise K.
Online Submission
The creation of multiple small schools from a single comprehensive high school elevates the necessity for many, rather than few, to assume leadership for various functions associated with helping each school to thrive. The nature of this effort calls for a view of leadership that moves away from reliance on administrative hierarchies and toward a network of shared and distributed practice. This report draws on data from a three-year study of seven small high schools in Washington State. Six appendices are included: (1) Methodology; (2) Gates Foundation Attributes and Essential Components; (3) Washington State Context; (4) Alder's Teacher-Leader Job Description; (5) Resources for Distributing Leadership; and (6) References. (Contains 3 figures.)
