The school administrator's role is more important today than ever before. In an era of shared leadership, how do administrators achieve the right leadership balance and also earn the trust of teachers and staff? What leadership lessons can be learned from administrators who have overcome obstacles to create successful professional learning communities (PLC)? 

The Collaborative Administrator offers insight, experience, and proven strategies from educators who have transformed their schools into effective and rewarding professional learning communities. The book focuses on the following three topics:

  • Leading a Culture of Collaboration
  • Leading a Culture of Learning and Results
  • Leading for PLC at the District Level

Each engaging chapter explores a key theme of effective leadership. Drawing from their own experience as well as research, the contributors address questions essential to all administrators, such as 

  • How do I collaboratively address the issues of critical learning?
  • How do I collaboratively develop plans to offer time, support, and enrichment to students throughout the day?
  • How do I collaboratively develop and use common formative assessments?

The book delivers a collective wealth of knowledge and experience from contributors with a wide range of backgrounds working in rural, urban, and suburban schools of all different sizes and serving different populations. Any current school administrator will be able to relate to the issues presented in this book and use these best-practice strategies to improve collaboration and communication within their own schools/districts and facilitate a PLC culture.
