Engaging in Distributed Leadership

By Bridget Goldhahn 
July 30, 2019

School leadership is broadly acknowledged to be vital to improving outcomes for schools and students. Yet, amongst the countless demands that educational leaders face, making wise choices to pressing issues have become increasingly more complex.

A new CPRE report reveals strategies to help leaders tackle their toughest issues. 

Authors Jonathan Supovitz (CPRE, University of Pennsylvania), John D'Auria (William James College), and James Spillane (CPRE, Northwestern University) lay out a research-informed framework for advancing meaningful school improvement using a distributed leadership approach.

Through activities, the authors explore scenarios for what leaders focus their attention on how should they prioritize their improvement efforts; the ways leaders can identify, understand, and make headway on the difficult challenges that will substantially enhance the educational experiences of their students; and how leaders can bring their faculty together with commitment around these improvement efforts.


The report was funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Opinions in this paper reflect those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the Consortium for Policy Research in Education (CPRE), the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, or that of the funder.
