Administrative Support

The case-study districts included here enjoy harmonious working relationships at all levels, based on trust and support. District administrators engage teachers in the curriculum decision-making process and respect their findings. The districts provide staff and money to coordinate planning, staff development, and materials support. Site administrators enter the process at the early stages, setting a tone of expectation that there will be a successful implementation. They display an enthusiastic attitude for the implementation. Site administrators support the staff development plan and encourage teachers to be courageous and creative. Districts that clearly communicate the implementation plan in writing, including the goals, district and teacher responsibilities, schedule, and materials management, have good success following through with their plan.
