Abstract (Summary)

Using a mixed-method research design, a measure of servant leadership was correlated with a measure of school climate to identify whether there was a relationship between principals’ and teachers’ perceived practice of servant leadership and principals’ and teachers’ perception of school climate. The study employed a mixed-method approach by first administering two validated quantitative instruments: Laub's (1998) OLA and Hoy et al.’s (1991) OCDQ-RE. These instruments were administered to a randomly selected sample of 231 full-time teachers and 15 principals working in a Catholic school board in Ontario. Upon completion of the quantitative data analysis, focus group interviews were conducted with 10% of the sample. The data revealed a significant positive correlation between servant leadership and school climate.
