The experience of the principal and staff at Savannah Oaks Elementary School in Verona, Wis., illustrates how a principal can help teachers assume leadership roles and make fundamental decisions that affect teaching and learning. This article details the process through which the principal guided teachers who developed a program that eliminates traditional age groupings and letter grades for some students, and how the culture of leadership engendered by that process has helped the school meet subsequent challenges. The article also notes specific characteristics of principals who successfully build cultures of leadership.
