Abstract (Summary)

School leaders can be an influencer of the academic growth of a student and

understanding how the school leader is an influencer will contribute to the success of a student. Leadership style is one way a school leader can impact and knowing what type of leader style (transformational, transactional, laissez-faire, or servant) influences a student’s growth positively is beneficial to everyone. There is a demand for improved academic growth and one of the suggested influencers is leadership, not just the educator. However, few studies exist pertaining to the influence a school leader has on student academic achievement. The purpose of this quantitative research study was to examine the teacher's perception of school leadership style and student achievement growth. This study consisted of a sample size of 56 educator and school leader participants in three school districts located in Wisconsin. The researcher used online surveys to receive participant input about the school leader in the school. The results of this study will improve the idea that each person in the district has an impact on the academic achievement of a student. The results will be used to inform school districts of the role leadership has in a student’s academic growth.
