dc.description.abstractA learning leader in a school district is the agent of change who can influence improvement in instruction or assessment delivery by the classroom teacher. A phenomenological approach was utilized in this qualitative study of the superintendent's role and associated activities performed in a small school district. Five school district employees in each of three districts were interviewed to understand their perceptions of the superintendent's roles and duties as a learning leader. Interview data, field notes and memos were coded to describe categories and framework areas common across the interview responses of the fifteen participants. Four major framework areas identified from the literature and refined during a pilot study provided structure for the analysis: (a) superintendent (principal) as learning leader, (b) teacher as learning leader, (c) outside agency as learning leader, and (d) student learning improvement--general (unidentified leader).en_US
