Description

Every superintendent wants a high performing school district, but orchestrating this accomplishment can be daunting. Responding effectively to this type of challenge requires that superintendents build a partnership with their school principals. Principals, in turn, face the same challenges and most learn quickly that their effectiveness is tied directly to their relationship with their superintendent. This insightful resource shows superintendents and principals how to develop the communication and strong collaboration that are essential for mutually supportive professional relationships. The authors detail how secure relationships combined with a team approach can significantly strengthen an administrator's leadership performance. In Leadership Teaming: The Superintendent-Principal Relationship, superintendents and principals will find research-supported concepts, novel strategies, and vivid examples that point the way towards productive, successful, and enduring professional relationships.
