The role of principal can be a very lonely one but when they engage in collaboration and collective inquiry, they can move their teachers and students forward. This article describes how five principals from five different elementary schools in Mesa Arizona came together to tackle some common challenges and strengthen their schools individually and collectively. This leadership collaboration has led to ongoing collaborations among teachers and students. Through this process of building and improving collaboration, key strategies that may be helpful for other cross-campus efforts were discovered: (1) Gather teacher feedback; (2) Ensure consistent messaging; (3) Maintain ongoing communication through technology; and (4) Enable ongoing collaboration.
