Using Data to Inform Practice: Effective Principal Leadership Strategies
This study examines the leadership strategies of principals to increase knowledge about how principals may effectively lead faculty in using data. The authors address two research questions:
- What is a research-based set of strategies that principals may employ in leading their faculty to use data effectively?
- How do school principals employ these strategies?
The authors draw upon data from three schools (elementary, middle, and high schools) examining the leadership strategies employed by these principals in light of the research-based set of strategies.
