Who is the Leadership Library — and Leadership Collaborative — for?
Teachers, administrators, heads of school, board members, parents and alumni. The Leadership Collaborative is designed to assist you in leading others and planning for the future of your school.
We have web readers who are constantly scanning online resources for useful links, reprintable information and planning tools to complement your planning efforts. We also share our own presentations and those of others for adaptation and use in your school setting and share our opinions and thinking and those of others in white papers and articles on topics of importance in school life.
We hope you will become part of the Leadership Collaborative by responding to the call for white papers, presentations, articles or best practices. We also hope you will return often. Contact us at email@example.com if you have any special requests.
Need to know information and useful resources for school leaders as they seek to guide their institutions to becoming schools of their dreams having the impact they most desire.

What’s on your mind? Opinions, methodologies, recommendations, survey results, or even musings can be great reading when they are presented in a white paper. White papers published by the Collaborative showcase who’s thinking about what issues. White papers are invited from heads, faculty, staff and board members, as well as association spokespersons. We’ll always have a few of our own in the mix, but the rest is up to you!
