Collaborative Leadership as a Catalyst for Change
Davenport, Allan; Mattson, Kristen
Knowledge Quest, v46 n3 p14-21 Jan-Feb 2018
In the spring of 2015, Dr. Karen Sullivan, superintendent of Indian Prairie School District 204 in Aurora, Illinois, signed the Alliance for Excellent Education's Future Ready Pledge, "making a firm commitment to implementing meaningful changes toward a digital learning transition that supports teachers, and addresses the district's vision for student learning" (Alliance for Excellent Education n.d.). The work that followed put school librarians in the spotlight as agents of innovation, professional development, and community support. In this article, Kristen Mattson, school librarian at Waubonsie Valley High School, and Allan Davenport, Director of Instructional Leadership and Innovation for Indian Prairie School District 204, share their story of how shared leadership and a coalition of support became the catalysts for both school and organizational change.
