After the authors present the foundational principles of group decision-making in a collaborative school, they explain the functions that are key to a dynamic school that embraces change and improvement:

  • Establishing and managing effective study groups that reflect on current school practices and investigate new approaches;
  • Developing and supporting coaching relationships that foster professional development throughout the staff;
  • Designing and managing mentoring programs that maximize the talents and resources of veteran and beginning teachers;
  • Promoting and sustaining shared leadership that focuses everyone on mutually agreed-upon goals
