A Focus on Leadership
The district leadership component of the project is focused on district change initiatives, which depends on resolute leadership at the district level. By focusing on whole district change and leadership IMSS provides the opportunity to develop leadership capacity within and across schools. The practice and research on collaborative school cultures and professional learning communities is very convincing. When teachers work together, led by an instructionally -focused principal, they are much more successful than when they work alone. Building lateral capacity means connecting schools within a district—and even more broadly—to develop new ideas, skills, and practices that increase the ability of individuals and organizations to bring about improvements.
