District Liaison Involvement in Partnership Academies
Gustafson, Debra M.; Kiltz, Nancy
Educational Considerations, v43 n4 p38-43 Fall 2016
In this article, Gustafson and Kiltz reflect on why they got involved in the very first master's level Professional Administrative Leadership Academy developed at Kansas State University (KSU). The authors had the opportunity to observe school leaders and noted that the most effective leaders shared their power and knowledge freely with others. They also understood that taking the time to develop leadership potential in others and fostering the type of thinking that promotes and creates positive learning environments in building educators and staff is imperative for student learning. However, not all potential school leaders understand the basis from which they should lead. This article describes the role and purpose of the District Liaison and the benefits derived by individuals who have come out of the leadership academies considering themselves as leaders among teachers and ready to fulfill a need in the buildings they serve.
