In order to better understand how formal, or administrative, leaders experience distributed leadership in their schools, and to gain insight into the role of BCPVPA leadership standards in understanding this experience, we designed a qualitative narrative inquiry in one school district in British Columbia.
Viewed through the lens of the BCPVPA leadership standards, distributed leadership has much to do with creating and sustaining a shared vision and modelling moral leadership, establishing relationships in which teachers' instructional and leadership skills can be showcased and weaknesses can be strengthened in a supportive way, ensuring teachers are not over-burdened with too many distributed tasks, and establishing formal structures in which informal leadership can flourish.
The distributed leadership research also showed how the BCPVPA leadership standards provide a novel way of accessing principals' stories and experiences of distributed leadership.
