Principals Build Strong Teams to Sustain School Improvement

Principals who support teacher leadership opportunities do more than work with groups, they cultivate the capacity for leadership among many teachers, who in turn, promote leadership among more teachers. Just about every school has a school improvement team that works on framing the work needed to achieve improvement. Some schools have several subgroups that work alongside the school improvement team. Regardless of the configuration of the school improvement process and the work that must be accomplished, there will more than likely be several teams of teachers working together, and this is why team development is so very critical.
