Abstract (Summary)

Public schools have a great responsibility of educating students to become productive citizens within the community. The free world depends on a highly educated workforce capable of amassing wealth to protect the freedoms we enjoy. To obtain a high quality education, senior school district leaders have a responsibility to create a school climate conducive to delivering high-quality instruction. The school climate must engage frontline employees, students and the community. This qualitative correlational study examined how leadership and communication affects employee performance and school climate. The sample of 874 school district employees in an urban school district in Northwest Pennsylvania participated in the study. The analysis found strong correlations between supervisor leadership, supervisor communication, employee performance, and school climate. Implications of the study include improving employee performance and school climate through effective leadership and communication.
