The authors examine the fi ve districts’: approaches in detail and point to a number of important findings. First, they emphasize that a clear, shared understanding of decision rights in key areas—:academic programming, budgeting, and staffing—:is essential to developing an eff ective central office-school relationship. Second, they stress the importance of building mutually supportive and trusting relationships between district leaders and principals. Third, they highlight the ways that culture and the external environment infl uence the relationship between the central office and schools. Each chapter also provides relevant “:Lessons for Practice”:—:actionable takeaways—:that educational leaders from any district can use to improve the central office-school relationship.
