In the face of principal turnover, a common approach taken by staff is to simply wait until the new school year begins and hope that the new administrator will continue to support current programs. It is our experience that this passive strategy is not as helpful, because there are proactive approaches that are more likely to be successful. The purpose of this article is to describe specific practical strategies that school-based team members (along with the outgoing principal) can use to prepare for a change of administrators and ensure sustained implementation of successful evidence-based innovations.
