Professional Behavior: Crossing the Line
McConnell, Tim J.; Rorrer, Andrea K.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v12 n2 p19-43 2009
This case, which was inspired by actual events, describes the efforts of a district to create a culture of accountability for professional employee practice and behavior. In the midst of new district leaders and a shift in district priorities, numerous situations test the fortitude, organizational knowledge, ethical commitments, and political prowess of the district leadership. As the case unfolds, there are opportunities for students in an educational leadership preparation program to explore the political, legal, ethical, and organizational change dimensions of district leadership, particularly around areas of human resource and supervision. In doing so, the case illustrates the importance of inter- and intra-personal dynamics of leadership, particularly leadership during transition. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
