Leading by teaching and learning

How do superintendents and their Cabinet’s lead central office transformation for equity?

Superintendent and Cabinet leadership are essential to realizing central office transformation for equity, but that leadership too requires transformation. DL2 research shows that these executive-level leaders seed and support central office transformation when they:

  • Lead the ongoing development and use of a theory of action,
  • Foster staff leadership and learning,
  • Focus cabinet meeting time on strategy and learning, and
  • Strategically bridge the district and its staff to external and internal resources and buffer them against distractions.
