Superintendent Roles as CEO and Team Leader
Björk, Lars G.; Browne-Ferrigno, Tricia; Kowalski, Theodore J.
Research in Educational Administration & Leadership, v3 n2 p179-205 Dec 2018
The complexity and intensity of reforms over several decades in the United States of America led to large-scale systemic reform and shifted superintendent roles from emphasis on management tasks to pivotal actions in the complex algorithm for managing and leading change initiatives. National commissions, task force reports, and nationwide research on the American superintendency informed need for changes in school-district leadership. This article provides a scholarly and objective analysis of issues surrounding five roles superintendents assume and the emergent need for district-level team leadership to address successfully diverse and complex challenges in contemporary education.
