Success for All

Leading a Culture of Collective Action for Student Success

If all students are going to be successful, schools need to examine how culture impacts the effectiveness of school improvement efforts. Designing and implementing effective school improvement initiatives requires leaders to focus first on creating a culture where the adults are involved in all aspects of planning and implementing school improvement efforts. A healthy school culture for school transformation and improvement is developed when leaders create processes to harness the power of teacher voice and agency. Leading from a different set of assumptions about the power of school culture creates new opportunities for leaders to enact the changes needed to improve their schools so all students are successful. Activating school culture requires leaders and teachers collectively to assess and monitor their school culture so they can enact change. Healthy school culture is created through joint action and responsibility of teachers and leaders working together.
