Today's school leaders are searching for a way to give value to and effectively manage a school's intangible assets to create a more holistic picture of student success. Schools establish partnerships with community organizations towards this end and to ultimately impact student learning. Utilizing the framework of principals as "knowledge managers", this paper describes how school principals involved in a university partnership developed a tool to manage and intentionally utilize the intangible assets of the school-university partnership to increase student learning. Included are examples of how the tool was applied and suggestions for adapting the tool to any school partnership.
