Over half of all teacher-powered schools have designated administrators, and the role is very different from what a traditional principal does at most K-12 schools. This guide is designed to address the unique opportunities and challenges in being a teacher-powered administrator. The guide draws on the expertise and experience of eight teacher-powered expert administrators from schools around the nation. Here you will learn from their knowledge and skills, as well as reflect individually and as a team on what is best for your own school.

This guide is intended for any site administrator working at, creating, or converting to a teacher-powered governance model at their school. It is especially relevant to any administrator coming into an already established teacher-powered school or an administrator whose team wants to move to a more teacher-powered model.
