1. Schoetzau, Ellen S. Principals' Support for Teacher Leaders at Elementary Schools in a Large Suburban School District in Virginia.

Degree: EdD, Educational Administration, 1998, Virginia Tech

The role of teacher leaders in schools is becoming more prevalent as educators examine ways to insure systemic change. It is based on the assumption that education will improve when those closest to the situation are included and encouraged to not only participate in the decision-making process, but also to initiate change. The purpose of this study was to describe the principals' support of teacher leaders in elementary schools in one school system. This study collected data from all public elementary school principals in a large suburban school district in Virginia and from selected elementary level teachers in order to answer the following four research questions: 1. Do elementary principals and/or teachers perceive they support the development of teacher leaders? 2. Do elementary principals and/or teachers perceive teacher leaders serve as a vehicle for shared decision-making? 3. Do elementary principals and/or teachers perceive teacher leaders as instrumental in expanding the focus of shared decision-making to include instructional decisions? 4. Do teachers and/or principals receive preparation at the college/university level to assume teacher leadership positions or as principals to guide teachers to assume leadership positions? The findings of this study indicated that elementary principals and teacher leaders perceive there is support for teacher leaders in their school. There is also agreement that teachers should participate in shared decision-making structures. There is disagreement between the two groups as to the level of participation in such areas as finances, personnel and implementation of new school programs. Finally, the principals do not believe that course work at the university/college level assisted them in promoting and supporting teacher leadership in their school.

2. Volk Burgess, Susan Lizrene. A Study of the Collaboration Between School And University Faculties In A Professional Development Academy.

Degree: EdD, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, 1997, Virginia Tech

The purpose of this study was to examine the events, processes, perceptions and changes that occurred as an elementary school faculty and a university faculty collaborated in a partnership formed by the creation of a Professional Development Academy (PDA). The study described how an elementary school faculty and a university faculty collaborated as they implemented a PDA. Research questions were: (1) What contributing factors led to the school and university facultiesÆ Â­ collaboration during the first three years of the pilot PDA, 1993-1996? (2) How did the school and university faculties collaborate for change during the first three years of the pilot PDA? (3) As a result of collaboration between the school and university faculties during the first three years of the pilot PDA, what changes occurred at the school and university? A descriptive case study approach was used to explore behaviors within these groups during the three pilot years of the PDA. The study included interviews, and a review of documents and artifacts. Four classroom teachers were randomly selected from the elementary school, four professors were selected from the university and two administrators: one from the school and one from the university, were interviewed. Responses from the interviewees were initially categorized into KaganÆ Â­s (1991) six categories of collaboration and into three sections: before the PDA began, during the three years of the PDA, and reflections at the end of the three pilot years of the PDA. KaganÆ Â­s categories for collaboration are: formation, conceptualization, development, implementation, evaluation, and termination/reformation stages. Documentation from the participants and PDA files were analyzed. Six factors were found to contribute to collaboration between faculties: a wish to know the other colleagues personally; maintenance of Æ Â±weÆ Â­re in this togetherÆ Â° attitude; willingness to accept additional responsibilities; investment in making the PDA work; discovery of opportunities for leadership and input; and synergy between coordinators and administrators. There was evidence that collaboration occurred because of a welcoming and supportive climate; open communication; active involvement by both faculties; validation of teachers and professors; and support for goals and recommendations. Advisors/Committee Members: Curcio, Joan L. (committeechair), Parson, Stephen R. (committee member), Salmon, Richard G. (committee member), Roesch, Maryanne (committee member), Lewis, Mary Anne (committee member).

3. Lynn, Patricia Pifer. Site-based management/shared decision-making in Virginia's secondary schools : who's really deciding?.

Degree: EdD, Educational Administration, 1996, Virginia Tech

This dissertation, and its companion dissertation, are the products of a collaborative research project that was conducted by two doctoral students. The process utilized is discussed. The research project focused on site-based management and shared decision-making. Site-based management (SBM) is a strategy that involves the decentralization of authority, and shared decision-making (SOM) among those involved. H is based on the assumption that education will improve when those closest to the situation are included in the decision-making process, and held accountable for their decisions. This study describes the status of SBM/SOM in the public secondary schools of Virginia in regards to teacher and principal participation, size of secondary school, and geographic location. Advisors/Committee Members: Worner, Wayne M. (committeechair), Parson, Stephen R. (committee member), Lichtman, Marilyn V. (committee member), Curcio, Claire Cole Vaught (committee member), Roesch, Maryanne (committee member), Curcio, Joan (committee member).
