Shared Leadership Initiative
In addition to teacher leadership positions, school administrators also identify non-teacher leadership positions in different areas of a school. School administrators need to establish criteria that align with district personnel policies and practices by which to both select and monitor the success of the leadership team members they have chosen. When determining the criteria, administrators should also consider the current school climate and culture to keep and work to sustain a positive school culture.
