by Dinning, Molly, Ed.D., College of Saint Elizabeth, 2014, 216; 3617689
Abstract (Summary)

The dissertation, "Perceptions Of The Leadership Practices Of Principals In A High Performing School District," explores the understandings of leadership practices from the perspective of parents, teachers, and principals in one high performing school district. The study addressed the leadership practices deemed important by the stakeholder groups, the external factors that influence the leadership practices, and the amount of time the practices require. The study revealed that the three stakeholder groups agree on six specific practices as being very important to school leadership in the district. In addition, external factors focused on relationships between stakeholder groups were found to have impact on the leadership practices. The principals also perceived three specific practices as taking much time and attention.
