Voices from the Field: How School Boards Can Support Districtwide School Improvement Efforts. Newsletter
Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement
Leadership is crucial for effective, lasting school improvement. Although research has established that strong, competent principals are vital for high-performing schools (Hallinger, 2003; Leithwood, 1994), attention is turning increasingly to the importance of effective district leadership, including school boards and their contributions to school improvement. During 2008 and 2009, The Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement has focused much of its effort on central office leadership and reform. The focus shifts in this newsletter as it explores the role of the highest level of school governance, the community school board, and the impact of its leadership on school improvement.
