Texas Education Agency (TEA) introduced Texas Principal Evaluation and Support System (T-PESS) for the 2016-2017 year. The evaluation system identifies five standards that serve as a guide to campus principals for improving school productivity, increasing student achievements, and continually improving effectiveness as a leader. In an effort to support principals with T-PESS standards, some districts have implemented leadership development plans. Leadership development plans provide a framework for principals to measure their leadership competencies, acquire peer feedback, and develop an action plan focused on effective leadership practices. Standard 4 of T-PESS measures effective culture-leader practices of principals. The current study reviewed principal leadership development plans and the perceived impact on school culture. According to T-PESS standards, effective culture leaders establish a shared campus vision, high expectations, family and community engagement, school safety, and student discipline. In the current qualitative study, eight campus principals who have utilized leadership development plans for two consecutive years and the eight assistant principals who serve under these principals were interviewed. The researcher used NVivo 11 Pro to analyze the qualitative data from the interviews. The researcher analyzed and coded the data as patterns emerged in perceptions of leadership development plans and the impact on school culture. Themes emerged which aligned with T-PESS Standard 4 culture-leader indicators. Furthermore, the data indicated that the participants considered leadership development plans to be a useful guide for campus principals in developing effective practices as culture-leaders.
