Leading Others into Leadership
Gill, Jennifer; Hendee, Roberta
Principal, v89 n5 p16-18, 20 May-Jun 2010
Walking into a new school with a recently earned certificate in one hand and a key to the office in the other is an unsettling feeling. Principals in this position--who often wonder who will help them along the way--need support from an effective principal or administrator. Though corporate leaders often use the phrase "reach behind you and pull the next person up," in many districts this practice is a new role for principals. Nonetheless, principals and administrators have a responsibility to serve as mentors in an effort to sustain programs and provide strong succession plans for the future. This article describes the Leading Education Improvement in Districts program, known as the LEAD program, and the school improvement coaching model in Springfield Public School District 186 in Illinois which are promising programs that build capacity while distributing leadership to provide increased support for teaching and learning.
