1. Costa, Suzanne. Leadership in the Barrington Public Schools professional learning community.

Degree: EdD, School of Education, 2013, Northeastern University

Working within the collegial model and relying on Hord's (2004) Five Dimensions of a Professional Learning Community as a thematic schema, this phenomenological research study explored the essence of leadership in the successful Barrington Public Schools Professional Learning Community (PLC) in Barrington, Rhode Island. This study discovered a thematic thread of capacity building - personal, interpersonal, staff, and organizational - through the lived experiences of leaders who developed, implemented and sustained the successful Barrington Public Schools PLC. Focusing on collaborative organizational structures, a cultural of learning, and a dependence on professional staff as the primary influences framing its investigation, this study confirmed the attributes of supportive and shared leadership in a successful PLC and brought to light the role of school leaders in empowering the collective capacity of the Barrington Public Schools PLC.; Finally, the findings of this study expanded on PLC literature from a practitioner perspective by conceptualizing the DuFour (2007) "loose-tight" leadership model and by providing strategies for school leaders aspiring toward best practice in the successful implementation of PLC initiatives and system wide reform.
